Fentress Bradburn Architects, the original designer of the Colorado Convention Center and Denver International Airport, have been chosen to lead the expansion. To inform and inspire their efforts early on, the firm held a series of focus groups with meeting planners from across the United States incorporating feedback from people who know what makes a convention facility most functional.
Meantime, Hyatt has announced plans to build a 1,100-room convention headquarters hotel directly across the street from the center. The $211 million property, set to open in 2005, will be a 37-story tower featuring 85,000 square feet of meeting space, including two spacious ballrooms.
