The Charlotte Convention Center, designed by tvsdesign, opened in 1995. Since then the needs of meeting planners and convention attendees have evolved, requiring investment in the facility to deliver a competitive experience. Based on recommendations from a market study commissioned by the Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority, tvsdesign explored a series of potential improvements and together with the staff developed a master plan for expanding and enhancing the center.
The implementation of the master plan includes the renovation of 76,000 sf and the addition of 26,000 sf new meeting space. Additional improvements include the addition of a pedestrian bridge and outdoor terrace over Stonewall Street, and a new atrium pre-function space.
