It’s Official: State Unveils Small Javits Expansion, Will Sell Block

Spitzer’s proposal for a $5 billion expansion to the Javits Convention Center – his “thoroughbred” convention center – is officially dead. The new expansion plan calls for a 100,000-square-foot addition on the block between 38th and 39th streets, down from the 500,000-square-foot addition proposed earlier, and would connect to the existing building. The state is hoping to sell the block bound by 39th and 40th streets, between 11th and 12th Avenues for about $800 million to help fund other projects (like the 7 line extension).
