• Latest plans for convention center revealed

    At the March 22nd meeting of the MAPS Convention Center Committee, city-paid consultants Populous presented the latest conceptual plans for the sprawling complex to be built immediately east of the new MAPS 3 downtown park.


    Areas of interest:
    • Broadway would be relocated 200 feet to the east between SW 4th and SW 6th.
    • A "Potential Hotel" is shown directly east of Broadway in addition to the proposed convention hotel to the north
    • A skybridge connection to the convention hotel is being considered
    • A large parking garage -- which is not currently funded as a part of this project -- is shown as an option over the loading dock area facing the relocated Broadway Avenue
