The National Corvette Museum, any Corvette enthusiast’s homeland, announced major plans afoot. The museum announced during the 2018 Bash event that it has plans to expand and new construction should begin in 2021.
The construction will comprise new office and exhibit space for museum-goers. Next year, architectural plans should be ready before the NCM breaks ground in 2021, according to Corvette Blogger.
At the NCM Motorsports Park, the board said it plans to purchase an additional 205 acres of land. The option to purchase the land expires this year, and board members agreed to secure the parcel. In addition, a new 30,000 square-foot-plus building will be erected at the Motorsports Business Park. The building will handle tenant recruiting and management at the facility. To enthusiasts’ delight, there was also mention of car condos, or “autominiums.”
In addition to the new construction news, the NCM shared attendance and financial figures. Attendance rose slightly over 2016 in 2017 to 228,744 visitors. Revenue for 2017 totaled $17 million; expenses totaled $14.7 million for a final figure of $2.4 million.
