New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently released updates to his vision for the $13 billion John F. Kennedy International Airport revamp project.

The plan, which was initially unveiled in January 2017, calls for JFK’s eight terminals to combine into one unified airport with the terminal complexed on the north and south sides. In addition, airport amenities, ground transportation and roadways are also set to improve. Overall, the airport’s capacity is estimated to increase by 15 million passengers a year.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently released updates to his vision for the $13 billion John F. Kennedy International Airport revamp project.

"While leaders in Washington talk about investing in infrastructure, we're actually doing it at historic levels and the transformation of JFK Airport into a 21st century transportation hub will ensure New York remains the nation's front door to the world," Cuomo said.

"This historic investment to modernize JFK Airport and the surrounding transportation network will not only ease travel through this major hub, but it will ensure JFK joins the ranks as one of the finest airports in the world."

The Plan

Cuomo said that the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which oversees JFK, sought proposals from each of the airport’s six terminal operators. The plans that were announced this week represent what came out of those talks and proposals.

The proposed new $7 billion, 2.9 million-square-foot terminal on the airport's south side will be developed by the Terminal One Group, a consortium of four international airlines—Lufthansa, Air France, Japan Airlines and Korean Air Lines. The plan calls for replacing JFK's Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 as well as the area left vacant when Terminal 3 was demolished in 2014. It will also be connected to the existing Terminal 4.

When completed, officials say it will “yield a net increase of over 2 million in square feet from the existing terminals” and will consist of:

  • 23 international gates;
  • 24 security screening lanes;
  • over 230,000 square feet of retail, dining and other concessions;
  • 116,000 square feet of airline lounges; and
  • 55,000 square feet of interior green space, children's play areas and cultural exhibits.

On the north side, the proposed new $3 billion, 1.2 million-square-foot terminal will be developed by JetBlue, which plans to demolish Terminal 7 and combine it with the vacant space where Terminal 6 was demolished in 2011. This will connect to the airline's existing Terminal 5.

This new terminal will have:

  • 12 international gates;
  • 74,000 square feet of retail;
  • 30,000 square feet of airline lounges; and
  • 15,000 square feet of recreational space.

The plan, which was initially unveiled in January 2017, calls for JFK’s eight terminals to combine into one unified airport with the terminal complexed on the north and south sides. In addition, airport amenities, ground transportation and roadways are also set to improve. Overall, the airport’s capacity is estimated to increase by 15 million passengers a year.

New passenger facilities will feature larger waiting areas with high ceilings, natural light and modern architecture coupled with interior green space, exhibits and art featuring iconic New York landmarks and local artists, according to officials.

The Port Authority is also seeking proposals to develop the new Kennedy Central Hub and will be issuing a Request for Information in the coming months to determine the best way to use that space.

The Team

This announcement comes one year after Cuomo and the Port Authority tapped the team that will lead the way on the massive undertaking.

The project will be led by United Kingdom-based firm duo Mott MacDonald and Grimshaw Architects, which is responsible for spearheading airport redesigns in London, South Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore, Zurich, Germany, the Netherlands, Canada, Australia and South Africa.

The team also includes TranSolutions, Harris Miller Miller & Hanson, VJ Associates, ACB Architects, EnTech Engineering, Naik Consulting, Reichman Frankle and Holmes Keogh.

Construction is set to begin in 2020, with some gates opening in 2023 and total completion slated for 2025.
