A recent audit of the spot near the convention center – located on 19th Street – found that it was underused.
The proposal for the development includes:
- A 300-room hotel next to the convention center
- Over 900 apartment units
- Around 160,000 square feet of retail and residential space
Developers say it would bring around 4,700 construction jobs and 800 new permanent jobs. The study will take into account all those costs and impacts.
