Tampa Convention Center plans to go vertical with new space along Riverwalk

The Tampa Convention Center has filed plans for expanding with the city.

A Dec. 17 filing shows the center is seeking to add on two levels of meeting rooms at the Riverwalk side of the center, which are scheduled to start construction in July 2019. It also entails demolition of existing roof overhang which will be replaced with curtainwall glazing and precast trim.

A curtainwall glazing would make a section of the convention center have a translucent roof with the additional meeting spaces.
