USA LVCVA reveals design for convention center expansion By Sarah Feldberg / April 16, 2018 Share 1 A rendering shows the design for the expansion of the Las Vegas Convention Center, expected to be complete in 2021. -- Behold Phase Two of the Las Vegas Convention Center's (LVCC) grand reinvention. The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority unveiled the design for the second of four phases of the LVCC District Project this month, an $860 million expansion that will tack on an additional 1.4 million square feet of space across the street from the existing facility. The new building, which will include at least 600,000 square feet of exhibit space, is being designed by tvsdesign/Design Las Vegas, and renderings show an undulating roofline, glass facade and airy, multistory entrance lobby. "Our biggest goal was to give Las Vegas a convention center that will be iconic, with a design that nods to all of the very unique architecture in the city's history, while also providing contemporary, cohesive design aesthetic across the entire property," said Rob Svedberg, tvsdesign principal, via press release. Drilling for the building's footing began in March, and the expansion is expected to be completed in time for CES 2021. The LVCC District Project, which began with the acquisition of the Strip-side Riviera real estate, will continue in Phase Three with a renovation of the existing facility, slated to finish in 2023, and future development in the Riviera footprint.
