PGAL to Design Terminal 1 at JFK
New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s office and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey announced that the team led by Carlyle Airport Group (CAG), was the successful proposer for the new Terminal 1 project at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK). PGAL will serve as the lead design firm in collaboration with 20 additional consultants.
The $7 billion Public Private Partnership began in 2017 working with the Port Authority’s planning staff to program, plan and design a 3 million-square-foot international terminal that will be part of an overall $13 billion redevelopment of the entire JFK campus to serve as the new gateway to New York.
Terminal 1 will have 23 international widebody aircraft gates, offer a world-class passenger experience, and is targeted to be one of the top five terminals in the world when complete. Munich Airport will be responsible for terminal operations and the entire commercial program. The project’s airline sponsor, Terminal One Group, is a consortium of Lufthansa, Air France, Japan Airlines and Korean Air. The construction will be led by AECOM/Tishman.
“This is a project of a lifetime for our Team,” states PGAL President and Lead Architect Ken Brown, AIA. “Having the opportunity to participate in the revisioning of JFK and define the new gateway to one of the greatest city’s in the world is beyond an honor.”
“While leaders in Washington talk about investing in infrastructure, we’re actually doing it at historic levels and the transformation of JFK Airport into a 21st century transportation hub will ensure New York remains the nation’s front door to the world,” Governor Cuomo said. “This historic investment to modernize JFK Airport and the surrounding transportation network will not only ease travel through this major hub, but it will ensure JFK joins the ranks as one of the finest airports in the world.”
The project is due to start construction in 2020 and complete in 2025.
