The construction of the long-awaited Colorado Convention Center Expansion Project got underway last week in downtown Denver. As one of the country’s leading convention and exhibition venues, expanding the space is expected to differentiate the facility from its competitors, ensuring it remains an attractive and global competitor.
Highlights of this project include the expansion of the Colorado Convention Center with a new 80,000-square-foot column free multipurpose room and outdoor rooftop terrace with sweeping views of the city skyline and mountains. The project will be the largest ballroom in Colorado and expand one of the largest buildings in Denver.
On the ground floor, there will be lobby renovations and seamless integration with the existing building, while offering attendees safe and easy access to an additional 150,000 square feet of meeting space, 600,000 square feet of exhibit space and a 5,000 seat Bellco Theatre.
Project members include project manager ASM Global, lead contractor Hensel Phelps Construction and design team TVS Design. When complete, the expansion will generate an additional $85 million in annual economic impact. The project is anticipated to be completed in late 2023 and will continue to operate during construction.
