Spokane Convention Center

Meet Me By the River

Spokane, Washington

Spokane Convention Center is in the heart of downtown Spokane and is fully integrated with the 100 acre River Front Park. Land Expressions and team competed for and won the honor of designing this convention center addition and surrounding landscape. The design required integration of urban spaces with restoration of native river habitat and recreational spaces historically valued by the community. 

The landscape site improvement package supports the building architecture, creates a unique sense of place associated with the Public Facilities District, and incorporates environmentally responsible materials/methodologies. Improvements to existing East/West corridors and newly developed North/South pedestrian connections greatly improve the effectiveness of the campus as a community hub. River overlooks, the promenade staircase, and programmable plazas offer additional activity opportunities for visitors and community members alike. Campus improvements embrace resource conservation and low-impact development.
