George R. Brown Convention Center Expansion Completed
After completing construction of the George R. Brown Convention Center in the late 1980s, Gilbane was once again chosen to manage the construction of a new 1,200-room hotel, a 650,000-square-foot expansion of the facility's existing convention center space and a new 1,200-car parking garage.
This new facility will also include a Houston Police Department substation for those officers engaged in special event duties, such as bike and mounted patrols. There is also shell space for a future restaurant and plans for a new jogging track across the street.
Total Cost: $360 million
