LaGuardia Gateway Partners (LGP) consortium has started construction on a new 130,000sq m Terminal B building at LaGuardia Airport in New York, USA.


The consortium includes Vantage Airport Group, Skanska and Meridiam, together with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

The $4.2bn project will involve the construction of a 35-gate terminal, along with a new west parking garage and other supporting facilities.

Work will commence with a roadway network and a new 3,000-space parking garage that will minimise congestion at the airport.

The project design reflects the recommendations from the Governor’s Airport Advisory Panel, which includes the new light-filled central hall where passengers arrive, set to connect Terminals B and C.

LGP and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey have recently secured financing for the project.

The new airport, expected to achieve LEED Gold certification, is set to open in 2018, with all portions of the redesigned Terminal B scheduled to open by the end of 2021. The project is expected to create 8,000 direct jobs and 10,000 indirect jobs.
