The seventh expansion to the Anaheim Convention Center is making its way above ground. To date, work has been primarily below-grade as crews have installed underground utilities and poured concrete foundations for the first phase of a new parking tower, scheduled to open late this summer with 622 parking spaces. Structural steel is set for the pedestrian bridge concourse, also opening in late summer, which will connect the parking structure to existing Convention Center facilities. The Anaheim Convention Center has continued to host the conventions and events that have become annual traditions for attendees. The new, flexible space will enable the Convention Center to continue to host growing conventions and will present opportunities to host new events and visitors. The expansion with 200,000 square foot of leasable space ACC North is scheduled to be unveiled in late summer 2017.

After months of below-grade work to prepare the site for a new parking structure, the expansion of the Anaheim Convention Center is looking up. Between Palm Court and Arena Plaza, steel was installed for the climate-controlled bridge concourse that will connect existing and new Convention Center space. The work was completed in December so as not to conflict with the Convention Center’s January events.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (July 15, 2015) Demolition is under way for the seventh expansion to the Anaheim Convention Center.

The expansion project is scheduled for completion in summer 2017.
