Phoenix Convention Center Expansion
City of Phoenix
Leo A. Daly, HOK
The Phoenix Convention Center expansion included the addition of the new West Convention Center building and renovation of Phoenix Symphony Hall. The Convention Center total square footage is now 600,000 square feet. A 45 foot deep excavation below grade on the north side of the existing Phoenix Symphony Hall created space for additional parking and the new exhibition hall. Our design included the removal of the north 40 feet of the existing Symphony Hall to place a new atrium and mezzanine area to connect the new West Convention Center building with the existing Phoenix Symphony Hall. At 135 feet high, the atrium and mezzanine space is as dramatic as it is beautiful.
