LaGuardia Airport $8B Upgrade is Making Progress, Check Out New Renderings

The $8 billion overhaul of LaGuardia airport in NYC has been underway for a while and lots of progress has been made. It’s a much needed improvement on one of the worst airports in the country.

LaGuardia Airport $8B Upgrade

On Thursday morning, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that the first new Delta terminal concourse (out of four) is set to open this fall. The 105,000-square-foot concourse will offer views of Citi Field and Flushing Bay, a variety of dining options (including, Rossi Pizzeria, which Lucali chef Mark Iacono consulted on), and “gates that can accommodate a wide range of aircraft.”

The rest of the renovation includes building a new Terminal B serving American Airlines, Air Canada, Southwest, and United; a new Delta Terminal C, new parking spaces, and a better roadway system. Terminal B’s first concourse opened last December.

A plan to build an AirTrain at the airport is also underway, as the Port Authority proposal was submitted to the Federal Aviation Administration back in October.
