The Moscone Center consists of three components that were developed in phases over a period of more than 20 years.
The first was Moscone South, completed in 1981. The second included the Esplanade Ballroom and Moscone North, completed in 1991 and 1992 respectively. The third, Moscone West, opened in 2003.
A timeline of significant events leading to the completion of each phase chronicles key decision points or events in the Center's development history.
These begin in November, 1976 when San Francisco voters approved Proposition S, recommending inclusion of an underground convention center within the Yerba Buena district.
