The Western Stock Show Association — managers of Denver’s National Western Stock Show — says that on Tuesday it will reveal details of its plans for four major new facilities on the site.
A $1 billion dollar renewal project agreement was revealed in August to revive the aging stock show complex.
The focal point of the renovated stock show site — known as the National Wester Center — will be the 100,000-square-foot Legacy Building. It will serve as the centerpiece of the urban renewal project to reinvigorate and expand the site into a year-round destination for “education, entertainment and agricultural innovation,” official said.
“The Legacy Building will be a home to all members of the National Western family,” said Pete Coors, chairman of the $100 million Honoring the Legacy Campaign supporting the new buildings.
The building will include terraces, art displays, expanded National Western Club seating, archives and history displays as well as office and conference space.
“This is going to be a watering hole, a gallery space, and a place to do business for friends, cowboys and art lovers alike,” said Paul Andrews, the stock show’s president and CEO.
The other major facilities will include The Yards (a redesign of the stockyards), the Equestrian Center and the Livestock Center.
