Oklahoma City Council approved final plans for Phase 2 of the MAPS 3 Oklahoma State Fairgrounds project, which is a new 279,000-square-foot expo building. The expo center will offer 201,000-square-foot of contiguous floor space at State Fair Park, among other amenities. Once complete, the building will be the largest event space in Oklahoma City.

Construction on the expo building will begin shortly after the 2014 State Fair and is expected to be completed in early 2016.  It will be built where the Travel & Transportation Building, Carriage Hall and courtyard are today.

The expo building’s modern design will feature a 12,000-square-foot lobby, concession areas, a ticket space, commercial kitchen and additional parking. The building was designed with maximum flexibility in mind.
