The new facility receive its permanent occupancy permit for all events from the City of St. Louis after it passed all required safety inspections.

The operations of the domed stadium and convention center expansion were turned over to the St. Louis Convention & Visitors Commission in accordance with the Authority's contractual agreement establishing the Commission's role in managing, marketing and operating the facility.

January 6 - The facility hosted its first non-football event — a "monster truck" show that attracted 32,000. Additional events, including golf, automobile, and home improvement shows, concerts, and political fundraisers, followed throughout 1996.

Development of the Robert J. Baer Plaza began. The Plaza's design serves two functions: as a park at the near north side of Downtown St. Louis and as an outdoor extension of the America's Center.

The project's total cost reached $300 million, with additional funding providing by construction fund interest earnings, the refinancing of two bond series, and the sale of Personal Seat Licenses for the St. Louis Rams football games. The project was completed within budget and on schedule.
