(Convention Centre Expansion: Source)
The new near billion dollar convention centre expansion is near completion. I’ve learned that they will have community open houses in early April 2009. I must say that I’ve seen this building progress daily and the end product is a lot better than I expected from the original renderings.
Here is the information from the VCEC site:
After five years of planning, building and planting, our new Vancouver Convention Centre waterfront expansion is ready for you.
Early this April 2009, be sure to mark your calendar for our opening events.
With over 1.1 million sq ft, or the equivalent of four city blocks, be sure to wear your running shoes as we’ll be ready to welcome you at our Community Open Houses, Saturday, April 4 and Sunday, April 5, from 10 am to 4 pm.
Visit, tour, and see for yourself the inner workings of the new expansion, and enjoy activities geared for all members of your family. Stay tuned for more details to come in your local media.
By “your local media” they were obviously referring to us. Stay tuned buzzers….
