Jacob K. Javits Convention Center Expansion

LERA was involved in the design of a proposed expansion of the existing convention center.  Designs for upgrades, and potential expansion, would need to accommodate active railway and transit lines running beneath the site.  As part of the scope of work, several feasibility studies were conducted.  Development potential was analyzed for the convention center site, as well as adjacent sites owned by the client and other municipal stakeholders.  Mixed use, retail, and waterfront uses were considered among the development schemes.
