Presenting The New Concourse At LaGuardia Airport – A new concourse with 11 gates opened on December 1st, 2018 at LaGuardia Airport. Designed by HOK, this new concourse includes local New York-themed restaurants and retail shops, family-friendly spaces, and an indoor park.
“The opening of the first new concourse and gates at Terminal B marks another significant milestone in the transformation of LaGuardia Airport into a modern, global gateway that is worthy of the State of New York,” said Governor Cuomo.
The first new gates are another step forward in the complex, multi-phase construction plan designed to enable the 30-million passengers-a-year airport to remain fully operational while the entire airport is rebuilt. Charging stations are placed throughout the gate seating areas, with free, fast high-speed Wi-Fi.
The new concourse has more than a dozen concessions, including New York-inspired food, beverage, and retail options. Shake Shack, La Chula, Osteria Fusco, Kingside and Irving Farm Coffee are some of the New York establishments that you will be able to find.
Retail venues include an FAO Schwarz toy store, McNally Jackson independent bookseller and District Market, which includes ‘Made in Queens’ products through a partnership with the Queens Economic Development Corp.
Family amenities include an airport-themed children’s play area. The display creates a multi-user experience that allows kids of all ages to design their own aircraft on a tablet and watch it come to life on a giant digital wall as it takes off from LaGuardia’s runway.
When fully complete, Terminal B will redefine the guest experience at LaGuardia. Passengers will walk above aircraft as they make their way to their gate, all while enjoying views of the iconic Manhattan skyline. In addition, the island and bridge design will increase the taxi-way space for aircraft.
The transformation includes a new 35-gate terminal, a parking garage, and a Central Hall that will unify the airport by connecting to Terminal C, which is also being redeveloped. The 1.3-million square foot redevelopment of Terminal B, with a construction value of $4 billion, is one of the largest public-private partnerships in American history and the largest in U.S. aviation.
