City council members endorsed an arrangement to fabricate a new $4 billion conference hall in Downtown Dallas.

A new report showed that the current Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center is obsolete and not similar to other colossal city assembly halls.

The gathering met Wednesday to discuss whether to develop it further or tear it down and begin without preparation.

Councilman Omar Narvaez contended the city needs to push ahead with the arrangement to destroy the conference hall and fabricate another turn of events. He utilized a bright portrayal of the current assembly hall's decay.

"The change of Downtown Dallas is what's going on with this. It's not only a structure," he said. "A structure we are in a real sense keeping intact with Band-Aids, paperclips, and diapers."

They eventually cast a ballot for $2 billion to fabricate another conference hall west of Lamar Street. An extra $2.2 billion will be spent on redevelopment projects in and around the assembly hall.

"I'm a little worried there is some disarray with our citizens," said Councilman Gay Donnell Willis. "They might see the glossy new article and think, 'I would rather not pay this. I have potholes and roads to manage.'"
