The City has sliced the list of bidders for the high-profile, high-dollar expansion of the Convention Center by a little more than half, according to sources close to the vetting process. Four entities out of nine, vying for a project valued between $270 million and $300 million, will head into interviews Friday and Monday with COSA officials. The City Council is expected to pick the winner in September – talk about fast-tracking.
Here's the short list, in no particular order:
A joint venture between locally based Zachry Construction Corp. and Hunt Construction Group (Dallas)
New York-based Turner Construction Co.
A joint venture between Guido Brothers Construction (San Antonio), Sundt Construction (Arizona) and Tishman Construction (New York)
Colorado-based Hensel Phelps Construction
