OKC proposed convention center - 200,000 sq.,ft exhibit hall, 45,000-square-foot meeting space, 30,000-sq.,ft ballroom.

Oklahoma City 600 room, 19 story Omni Convention Center Hotel

...and a proposed 133 room, 5 story Fairfield Inn & Suites Marriott.

The new convention center will replace the old Cox Convention Center (formerly Myriad built in 1973).

Majority of our costs will be funded by the MAPS III initiative which did not include provisions for parking or hotel subsidies. A 600 room Omni & a 133 room proposed Fairfield Inn would increase the total room count to 733 closer to the proposed 735 room hotel study recommendation. Both hotels & the convention center will share the 1,365 proposed parking (865-space parking garage, and a 500-space parking lot).

OKC faces a potential $150 million in hotel subsidies--includes $27 million subsidy for a new parking garage. Omni will finance $150.1 million. Total cost estimate for the OKC Omni = $300.1 million.
