LA Convention Center Redesign Could Add Up To Big Money

Populous / HMC Architects

It looks like the City of LA will have to fork over more cash to pay for the upcoming redesign of the LA Convention Center.

A new report from LA City administrative officer Miguel Santana says the plan will cost $720M instead of the initial $470M estimate.

However, if a private developer were to fund the project and expand it to allow for a hotel, retail space and residential, it could cost more than $1B, according to LA Downtown News. Miguel has proposed having the city use a public-private partnership.

A design from an architectural team of Populous and HMC Architects was chosen for the $470M project.

City officials are considering which option to pursue. [LADN]
