Primclass Lounge at IAD
 
From WTOP: https://wtop.com/business-finance/20...NOW2TVLkyrcThe Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority has approved a contract with airport lounge operator TAV America for a large, high-end passenger lounge at Dulles Airport just past security.

The passenger lounge will include seating areas, Wi-Fi and business services, a conference room and meeting space, liquors, wines and dining options, quiet rooms, a workout room, a shower room, spa services and a children’s play area.

It will occupy part of 9,100 square feet that the airport authority has identified as underutilized space.

This lounge will be located around the base of the old ATC tower. Page 37 and 38 of this document has a floor plan and view from outside of the lounge. : https://www.metwashairports.com/site...licitation.pdf around page

And blueprints of existing floorplan: https://www.mwaa.com/sites/default/f...-12134_qa1.pdf

it is interesting that an operator and naming rights have been announced before the construction contract award has been announced.

The real missed opportunity is to re-purpose the actual old tower into a retail/dining/observation space. Unfortunately, the entire main terminal and tower have been designated as historical which means significant alterations are prohibited which in turn means the only existing elevator cannot be made to be ADA compliant. So now it sits there like a carbuncle on the ... of a pimple for many many years yet to come. It is very cool up there; considering how many people pay to go to the top of the Empire State Building, Stratosphere in Vegas, etc it would be a huge money maker. Oh well.
