Renovations include adding 26,000 square feet of breakout space, 24,000 square feet of pre-function space and a pedestrian walkway linking the convention center to The Westin Charlotte hotel.
Slated to begin in spring 2019 and finished in December 2020, a premier component of the expansion will include a pedestrian bridge linking the new wing of the convention center to The Westin Charlotte hotel, the city’s largest convention center hotel with more than 700 rooms. The pedestrian connectivity is located along Center City’s convenient LYNX light rail with access to an area termed “Stonewall Corridor,” which is currently undergoing a $2.7 billion development boom. The architecture will boast a “picture window” design element and have a similar feel to New York City’s High Line.
“The CRVA is committed to creating a center that delivers an exceptional customer experience at the Charlotte Convention Center,” says CRVA (Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority) CEO Tom Murray. “These renovations will ensure our space continues to be competitive for meeting and convention business and can tout high demand features, like the pedestrian walkway, that will deliver a best in class experience for visitors.”
