In 2019, the
Phoenix City Council requested public input on the future of the Phoenix Convention Center (PCC) South Building site. The Phoenix Convention Center and Community and Economic Development departments held a series of community outreach meetings to discuss and collect feedback about the future of the Convention Center South Building site. City staff presented information on the history, use and future options of the South Building and site. Feedback collected was presented to the Phoenix City Council in the fall of 2019.
The South Building along with North and West Buildings make up the Phoenix Convention Center campus. In 2002, the Phoenix City Council adopted the expansion master plan, which consisted of three phases:
Phases 1 and 2 were completed with the construction of the new West and North Buildings as well as the refurbishing of the South Building. Phase 1 and 2 was a $600 million project jointly funded by the state of Arizona and the city of Phoenix.
Phase 3 was the proposed future development of a new South Building and expansion of the existing site.
