Richard Rogers Partnership is currently designing the expansion and renovation of New York City's Jacob k Javits Convention Centre. 

The exhibition and meeting room space will increase from around 790,000 sq ft to around 1.1 million sq ft. The expansion will also create a hotel with between 1,000 to 1,500 rooms, and the largest ballroom in New York. The redevelopment will revitalise the existing Javits Center and transform the building's public front and image to make it a world-class convention centre. There will be 3.2 acres of new publicly accessible open space achored by a large public plaza. The plaza, at approximately 40,000 square feet, will contain trees, pedestrian amenities and retail kiosks. Phase I of the Javits expansion and renovation is expected to be completed in 2010.
