Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center – a property located in Grapevine, Texas – will undergo a $120 million expansion that will add 300 guestrooms to the resort’s current 1,511 room inventory, and will add 86,000 square feet of meeting space that will bring the total meeting space to approximately 490,000 square feet.
Construction is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2016 and will be completed during the second quarter of 2018.
Once the expansion is complete, Gaylord Texan will become the second largest non-gaming convention center hotel in the US, behind Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center and ahead of Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center.
The meeting space addition will include a new 30,000-square-foot ballroom, 30,000 square feet of breakout space and approximately 26,000 square feet of carpeted pre-function space.
The project will also include a $5 million expansion of the property’s resort pool complex, which is expected to be completed by the 2016 summer season.
