According to a past OC Register article, the Anaheim Convention Center will under-go a seventh expansion. The Anaheim Convention Center is located in the City of Anaheim, at the heart of the Anaheim Resort. The convention center is located south of Disneyland Resort. The new expansion replaces a parking garage located at the north-side of the convention center abutting Katella Avenue. As part of the expansion effort, the old parking garage will be replaced with a new one which will be located in the center of the new building.
According to the Anaheim Convention Center Expansion 2017's website, the new building will have two levels, totaling 200,000 sq. ft., providing the opportunity for flexible space uses such as exhibits, meetings, and banquets. The architectural design was from Populous and construction will be under Turner Construction Company. The anticipated completion date is Summer 2017.
The popular WonderCon was hosted at the Anaheim Convention Center till this year, as Comic-Con International announced they would be moving WonderCon to the Los Angeles Convention Center for 2016. The non-profit organization stated that lack of convention space was the reason for leaving the Anaheim Convention Center. Additionally, the organization is still looking for a convention center site for 2017 as stated by the kpbs article, "Securing dates and the proper amount of space has always been difficult, and at this point Glanzer said 2017 is up for grabs." (Source). In light of the upcoming expansion, it remains to be seen if WonderCon will come back to the Anaheim Convention Center.
Project Location (Red Dot):
On a side note, interestingly, based on the rendering video, the neighboring Marriott Residence Inn hotel project (which is under construction) is shown (East of the new convention center expansion building). Perhaps this is the rendering for the hotel. If that is the case, this is a sizable hotel project (about 9 stories tall).
