Rogers lands massive New York scheme

  • Comment
The Richard Rogers Partnership has been picked to design the $1.4 billion expansion of the Jacob K Javits Convention Center in New York, it has emerged.

The practice saw off competition from fellow British practice Grimshaw and entries from Morphosis with Gruzen Samton, as well as Rafael Viñoly Architects, to land the task of overhauling IM Pei's original building.

Rogers' scheme, which will be designed in collaboration with local practice Fox & Fowle, is expected to be confirmed as the competition winner by the Javits Development Corporation tomorrow.

The proposed redevelopment will add around 130,000m 2of new exhibition space to the complex and would also create a massive new ballroom and a 1,500-room hotel.

The AJ understands the practice will now begin a month-long consultation with local parties and that the first designs will be unveiled by the end of the year.
