Post SFO to break ground on massive $2.4 billion Terminal 1 renovation

The San Francisco International Airport will break ground on a $2.4 billion renovation of Terminal 1 on June 29.

Terminal 1 currently houses domestic airlines Delta (NYSE: DAL), Southwest (NYSE: LUV) and Frontier. It will be partially demolished to make way for the construction and renovation of two new boarding areas, central check-in and security spaces, baggage claim and a new mezzanine to connect the terminal to AirTrain and parking.

Won't be done until 2020.

Will include a new 350-room high-end on-airport hotel, owned by the airport and operated by probably either Hyatt or Fairmont.

Definitely Hyatt. Probably not going to be an 8,000 point property like the one further south. I'm back there again this week on cash and points ($55 and 4,000 points) beofre a 6am flight.

SFO website (link above) is saying 2024 completion. Has the development finish date been sped up?

It is likely that Hyatt might keep the Regency even after the Grand opens, as they have both brands at DFW. The two hotels at DFW market to very separate groups, both meetings and overnight guests.
u do

My guess is that we will see a lot of the mentioned interim construction before anything new starts to be built at T1.

2 cash cows. Most if not all of the majors have several SFO-area properties. Try and get a room under $350+ during peak periods.

Exactly. The Regency can keep the corporate meetings, weddings and banquets (where parking is easier) while the Grand will be a natural for less price-conscious travelers.
