The Spokane (Wash.) City Council has approved the building of a skywalk to connect the Spokane Convention Center, which offers 100,160 square feet of exhibit space, to the new 716-room Grand Hotel Spokane, which will open in summer 2015. According to news reports, the $1.5 million elevated walkway will be paid for by the Spokane Public Facilities District, which owns and runs the convention center. The new hotel will have 62,500 square feet meeting space, including an 18,000-square-foot ballroom.
