As part of Andrew Cuomo’s 2016 agenda, it was announced this morning that the Governor plans to upgrade Jacob K. Javits Convention Center by injecting $1 billion into renovations and a massive new wing.
The proposal will expand the Javits Center by 1.2 million square feet, resulting in a fivefold increase in meeting and ballroom space, including the largest ballroom in the Northeast. A four-level, 480,000 square foot truck garage capable of housing hundreds of tractor-trailers at one time will also be constructed to improve pedestrian safety and local traffic flow. The proposal’s total projected cost is approximately $1 billion, paid for by the Javits Center within existing resources. Construction is expected to begin in late 2016.
