Governor Cuomo announced this week that the first of four new concourses within the upgraded Delta terminal at LaGuardia Airport (LGA) will open this fall. The renderings illustrate a light-filled, 105,000-square-foot concourse with views of Citi Field and Flushing Bay. According to Curbed, the new concourse’s amenities will include H&H Bagels, Birch Coffee, Juice Press, and Rossi Pizzeria from Chef Mark Iacono.

LGA’s extensive, $8 billion overhaul, originally announced in 2015, includes building a new Terminal B serving American Airlines, Air Canada, Southwest, and United; and a new Delta Terminal C, parking spaces, and an improved roadway infrastructure. These improvements come at the hands of LaGuardia Gateway Partners, a coalition that includes Vantage Airport Group, Skanska, HOK, and WSP USA. Last December the first 18-gate concourse at Terminal B opened.

“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,” Governor Cuomo said. “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.”

Despite opposition from residents near LGA, plans are progressing in the construction of a $2 billion AirTrain. The Port Authority submitted its case this week to the Federal Aviation Administration after presenting a proposal last October. An AirTrain to LGA would connect the airport to the Mets-Willets Point station in Queens, allowing transfers to the 7 train and the Long Island Rail Road. It would also shorten the trip from Midtown to the airport to under 30 minutes.

LaGuardia Airport remains fully operational throughout its multi-phased redevelopment. It has not lost capacity since old facilities are only demolished when new buildings are completed.

    Looks too small already.

  3. Terminal B design is so much nicer. Delta’s design looks like an updated Atlanta Concourse with low ceilings. Ugh. Big difference from the beautiful gate areas in Terminal B.

  4. Huge mistake in not building the rail link BEFORE turning the site into construction hell. I’ve been stuck in so many traffic lockjams over the last few years (including last night) that I’ve lost count — and most of those were using public transit, which has no way to access the airport without getting snarled. What a mess.
