The expansion project at a glance.

The $325 million transformation of the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center will ensure that San Antonio will have the type of world-class convention facilities that can attract business and travelers to our city for decades to come. When the new facility is open, the oldest portion of the current convention center complex will be demolished and enable Hemisfair Park to realize its vision of creating a vibrant mixed-use area centered on a city park. Read more about the plans and benefits.

To create room for the transformation of the convention center, Market Street will be realigned parallel to Commerce Street, creating better connection to the East Side of San Antonio and direct access to I-37 from downtown.
