Moscone Convention Center Expansion

The Moscone Center Expansion project increased existing convention capacity by more than 50 percent, adding approximately 300,000 square feet of usable area in the form of a building equivalent to eight stories – one level below grade (the loading dock), and three stories above ground (the convention space). The basement contains an 8,000-square-foot full-service kitchen. The project also included installation of a moving 18-foot-high by 26-foot-long projection screen (LED Panel) on the building’s exterior; telecommunication systems using fiber-optic cable backbone with full-service audio-visual capacity electronically linked to Moscone North and South; and closed-circuit TV security.
