LaGuardia Airport is undergoing a major renovation—to the tune of $8 billion in upgrades—and we finally have our first view of the new Delta Air Lines terminal. The first of four new concourses for Delta at the airport is expected to open for business this fall, with great views and new restaurants.
Since 2015, LaGuardia Airport has been undergoing a massive $8 billion renovation, including a brand new Terminal B for American Airlines, Air Canada, Southwest, and United; a new Terminal C for Delta; improved roadway; more parking; and a $2 billion AirTrain.
We’ve just gotten our first look at the first of four new Delta concourses to open. The new concourse is 105,000 square feet and offers views of both Flushing Bay and Citi Field. According to Curbed and reported by New York Yimby, there will also be a slew of new restaurants in the concourse, including H&H Bagels, Birch Coffee, Juice Press, and Rossi Pizzeria from Chef Mark Iacono.
“This new milestone in LaGuardia’s transformation brings us another step closer in converting the airport into a world-class flight hub in line with New York standards,” New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo told New York Yimby. “Our collaboration with Delta in the development of this concourse and the new LaGuardia terminal is another demonstration of the effectiveness of public-private partnerships at work to modernize our state’s infrastructure.”
The airport has remained in operation throughout the renovations and will continue to be – old buildings are only torn down once new ones are finished and ready for use.
