Project Description

The Blue Water Convention Center (BWCC) is located along one of the most breathtaking points of the St. Clair River. The convention facility offers unprecedented views of Lake Huron, the Blue Water Bridges, and the St. Clair River. This facility and its location offer visitors an experience that will draw them back to the community again and again.

The project began with a feasibility study in 2010 which concluded that the area needed approximately 40,000 sq ft of mixed-use areas to handle a vast array of functions. It was also mandated that it be connected to a major hotel.

The BWCC provides ballroom and meeting space, a new home for the Blue Water Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, approximately 20,000 sq ft of high bay area to accommodate concerts, shows, exhibits, and two major breakout areas for weddings, riverfront dining, and events.

This project was completed as a public/private collaboration.
