Moscone Center in San Francisco is expected to undergo a $500 million expansion that will add as much as 400,000 total square feet to the 2 million-square-foot facility. Plans call for about 80,000 square feet of new exhibit space, for a grand total of 780,000 square feet. The San Francisco Board of Supervisors has approved the creation of the Moscone Expansion District and will start collecting revenue for the project in July. Construction is set to begin by the end of 2014, to be completed by 2018.
