OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahomans are getting their first glimpse of the new convention center that will be built in downtown Oklahoma City.
City leaders released the first preliminary design plans on Tuesday, showcasing the MAPS 3 Downtown Convention Center.
“We know everyone is excited to see what the convention center will look like,” MAPS 3 Program Manager David Todd said. “These images give you a sneak peek, but this isn’t a finished product. You’ll see more design elements as our staff and consultants finish the plans with the input of the subcommittee, advisory board and City Council.”
The preliminary design does not show what color or materials will be used to complete the convention center.
The MAPS 3 Convention Center has a current budget of $288 million and will be built along the eastern edge of the MAPS 3 Downtown Public Park’s north section.
