Construction Begins on Delta Terminal at LaGuardia Airport
Groundbreaking has commenced for the forthcoming $4 billion Delta terminal at LaGuardia Airport in New York. Spearheaded by Skanska with HOK and WSP USA serving as design partners, the new facilities are under development as part of the $8 billion upgrade to the airport. The new terminal is slated for completion by 2021, with its first gates launching as soon as next year.
The first major airport rebuild in the U.S. in more than 20 years, the project is depicted more vividly in new renderings. Designs reveal the airport unified under one roof, enhanced with high-quality amenities and expanded public transportation. Artwork and interior greenery are also featured, while a glass-enclosed bridge clad with a moving sidewalk is set to be installed as well.
LaGuardia Airport is expected to serve 50 million annual passengers—a leap from 29.8 million in 2016—once the rebuild is complete.
