America’s Center Convention Complex Expansion

St. Louis, Missouri, USA

The design affords convention and meeting goers an accessible, flexible, attractive, modern experience.

Designed by Fentress Architects, Phase I includes an over 90,000-square-foot expansion to the Center’s primary exhibit hall, which will enable St. Louis to once again be highly competitive with markets like Nashville and Charlotte.  In addition to a significantly expanded, contiguous exhibit hall, Phase I also includes the addition and refurbishment of loading docks along Cole Street.

Phase II, also designed by Fentress Architects, will include:

  • a new 65,000-square-foot, highly-flexible, ground floor ballroom with adjacent lobby and support spaces
  • an adjacent lobby with floor-to-ceiling windows,
  • an outdoor venue,
  • restyling of the Washington Avenue entrance, and
  • relocation of kitchen facilities to be nearer the exhibit halls and out of the basement.
