Convention Center District Development


Convention Center District Development: Reimaging & Revitalizing

An exciting transformation is taking place which will revitalize the Convention Center District, bringing new entertainment, dining, arts and cultural opportunities to residents and visitors alike.

Phase I of the Convention Center District Development Project, situated on 47 acres upriver and adjacent to the Center, calls for construction of a new “headquarters” hotel needed to accommodate the current demands from meetings and conventions and the projected increase in visitors to the city. Phase II will be the development of other parcels of the 47 acres to include:

  • New premier retail shopping options
  • New fine and casual dining options
  • High-rise residences with beautiful vistas of the Mississippi River
  • Direct access to the river with outdoor entertainment and gathering places

Additional planned elements will also include:

  • Multi-modal transportation hub for shuttles and taxis
  • Improved lighting and streetscape for shops, hotels, restaurants, museums and galleries
