The multimillion-dollar overhaul of the Las Vegas Convention Center that was torpedoed when the economy tanked is on again, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority board of directors has been told.
But the concept outlined for the board will use a different strategy than the one implemented in 2005 and shut down in 2008. It will not only focus on renovating the 3.2 million-square-foot building but make over the neighborhood around the Convention Center.
“The district concept would feature potential improvements to roadways, sidewalks, streetscapes and iconic architectural elements for traffic and pedestrian corridors leading to the venue,” said Terry Jicinsky, senior vice president of operations
Jicinsky said that over the next six months, LVCVA officials will meet with Convention Center customers and organizations that use the facility to gauge their needs and determine priorities for improving the building.
