LaGuardia Airport’s New Terminal B
Wed Apr 10 1:15 PM — 5:15 PM (GMT-05:00) Eastern Time
LaGuardia Airport’s new Terminal B is the top-to-bottom transformation of one of the nation’s highest-profile terminals. Tour the facility–airside and landside–with members of the operations and design team to learn how they transformed the terminal while remaining fully operational and minimizing inconvenience to customers or communities surrounding LaGuardia’s uniquely small geographic footprint.
The bold design celebrates arrivals and departures with equal emphasis, challenging the industry practice of reserving the most monumental spaces for departures. The transparent, fluid design conveys a strong civic presence in a city known for its remarkable architecture. Its verticality, scale, and sense of the new echo the monumentality of the city itself. In the spirit of transportation centers like New York’s Grand Central Terminal, the new Terminal B ushers in an ambitious new era of mobility, travel, and public celebration. As the world’s first airport to earn LEED v4 Gold certification, learn how Terminal B has helped pioneer sustainability measures for civil infrastructure projects. The project also offered historic community benefits, including more than $910 million in contracts to minority- and women-owned business enterprises and hundreds of permanent jobs for area residents. The new terminal showcases commissioned and site-specific art installations curated by the Public Art Fund in partnership with LaGuardia Gateway Partners, the terminal developer and operator.
