Active Projects

Project Overview

The Wisconsin Center expansion project, budgeted at $420 million, will add to the center’s main exhibition hall. The development will also provide a second ballroom with an outdoor terrace and add meeting rooms, indoor parking spaces, and loading docks. Construction is anticipated to begin in late 2021.

The expansion project includes a comprehensive economic inclusion plan that maximizes the local workforce and utilization of diverse businesses as partners, subcontractors, vendors, and suppliers designed to move the community forward.
