To remain the largest west coast convention center, the Anaheim Convention Center planned a 200,000-square-foot expansion, which includes a flexible space. The city selected the Turner Construction, Populous Architecture and Watry Design Build team to deliver the $180-million project on the site known as Car Park 1.
To support the planned state-of-the-art multipurpose, flexible meeting and exhibit space and a climate-controlled pedestrian bridge expansion, the plans include a 5-level parking structure in Phase 1 and 2 levels of parking sandwiched between the convention center space that is both above and below the parking in Phase 2. Careful consideration was given to develop a solution in Phase 2 that minimizes the vibration and noise created by cars.
