EXPANDING OUR VISION


With the Javits Center’s upcoming expansion project, everything that our customers, vendors and staff value about our facility is about to be realized on a much larger and wholly unprecedented scale. The proposal will enlarge the Javits Center by a staggering 1.2 million square feet, amounting to a fivefold increase in meeting room space. The expansion’s sweeping changes will effectively create a new Javits Center—one that is destined to make a dramatic leap to the top tier of the world’s convention centers.

Reimagining an Icon

Taking in the full scope of the Javits Center's history-making 5-year overhaul, it's fair to say that the Javits Center hasn't been merely renovated but also revitalized and reimagined. Working together with the New York Convention Center Development Corporation, construction manager Tishman Construction and architects FXFOWLE and Epstein, we executed a bold, indelible vision for the new Javits Center. Even while the renovation was in progress, the Javits Center maintained its role as the country's busiest convention center, generating billions of dollars of economic activity across the city and state. The transformation of the building is evident everywhere, inside and out. And driven by a strong commitment to sustainability and a focus on efficiency, the building is pursuing LEED Silver certification.

For chief executives and business professionals, show managers and meeting planners, as well as millions of tourists and New Yorkers, all of these improvements clearly position the Javits Center as a premier convention center that rivals any venue. Now more than ever, the Javits Center is where New York meets the world.
