Jacob K Javits Convention Center Expansion
A consortium comprised of LendLease, Turner Construction, and TVS is leading the construction of 90,000 square feet of permanent exhibit space, 27 new loading docks, a green roof terrace and pavilion that will accommodate up to 1,500 people, 45,000 square feet of new meeting room spaces, and a 55,000-square-foot ballroom, the largest of its kind in New York. The new exhibit space combined with the existing exhibit space will create an approximately 500,000-square-foot exhibition hall.
Once complete, this expanded space is expected to generate $393 million annually for the state’s economy and 6,000 permanent jobs. The project aims to obtain LEED Silver certification.
