Managed by the
Midland Chamber of Commerce
In November 2014, the Midland Center began working on development plans for the renovation of the current facility to expand and improve the event space in downtown Midland.  A cost analysis determined that it was more cost effective to demolish the current Midland Center and replace it with a new Convention Center.  City Council directed the developers to proceed with options for a new facility.  In February 2016, the Council chose an option and RWA, Center and City staff began work to further develop that plan.  In July 2016, the City Council approved a GMP (Guarenteed Maximum Price) from Lee Lewis Construcion.  The bids submitted to Lee Lewis will be presented to the Council on Janurary 24, 2017, for final approval.
