Plan Map

  Recreating Downtown


Last week, the Public Building Authority unveiled its long-delayed proposal for private development to complement the city's planned $160 million convention center on the World's Fair Park.

It calls for massive new public and private investment and envisions everything from a major tourist attraction on the Park itself to several blocks of retail and office development through the heart of downtown.
