America’s Center Convention Complex Expansion
St. Louis, Missouri, USA
Fentress' design affords America's Center convention and meeting goers with an accessible, flexible, attractive, modern experience.
Fentress’ design for Phase I includes a substantial expansion to America 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.
Meanwhile, Phase II 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.
