Colorado Conference Heart To Be Refurbished For $ 200 Million For Two Years – CBS Denver

DENVER (CBS4) – The City of Denver is starting a two-year renovation project at the Colorado Convention Center. The crews will build an 80,000 square meter multipurpose room and outdoor deck on the roof of an existing facility. Denver planners expect the new facilities to host up to 25 additional events per year and generate an estimated $ 85 million.

In the meantime, downtown drivers will see the most immediate impact of the project. The Denver Department of Transportation and Infrastructure, DOTI, is blocking the lanes on Champa Street between Speer Boulevard and 14th Streets to make way for the cranes. DOTI plans to keep two lanes and one bicycle lane open throughout the project. There will be some total road closures when the crews get the cranes in place.

The city is spending $ 104 million from Measure 2C, which was passed by voters in 2015, and $ 129 million from Certificates of Participation issued in 2018. According to DOTI, the return funds for certificates of attendance come from tourism improvement district revenue, a portion of the revenue from seat tax, and excess revenue from the convention center hotel.
