Jacob Javits Center to Undergo $1B Renovation

The Jacob K. Javits Center, the complex that for the past 30 years has hosted the regions largest trade shows, is entering a new phase of its expansion with a proposed $1 billion renovation. The proposal, announced by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo in early January, will create five times more space within the facility with construction expected to begin late 2016. The renovation of the six-block complex, which stretches from 34th Street to 40th Street along 11th Avenue and the Hudson River in New York City, will also create thousands of full-time, part-time and construction-related jobs. Once completed, Javits will include a 60,000 SF ballroom, the largest in the Northeast, in addition to a solar energy array, which will be the largest of its kind in a public building in New York State.
