Advanced talks were underway earlier this spring to convert JFK Airport’s vacant TWA Flight Center into a hotel, and now the project appears to be happening, according to Curbed. A 505-key hotel is expected, which will be accompanied by 40,000 square feet of meeting space, six to eight dining options, an observation deck, and a museum.

MCR Development, along with Jet Blue and the Port Authority, are developing, and two new-construction hotel buildings will be built adjacent to the landmarked portion. Plans must first be approved by the LPC, but construction is expected to begin next year for a 2018 completion.
