Jacob K. Javits Convention Center is a large convention center at 11th Avenue on the west side of Manhattan. The revolutionary space frame structure was built in 1986 and named for New York United States Senate Senator Jacob K. Javits, who died that year. The exhibit space is over 62,700 m2. Planning and constructing a convention center on Manhattan's west side has had a long and controversial history, including efforts starting in the early 1970s to produce a mega project involving a redevelopment concept. On October 16, 2006, a ground breaking ceremony was held to start construction of an expansion which will expand the center's size by 45 %, and include a hotel, designed by Richard Rogers Partnership. The project is scheduled for completion by 2010.
