Newark Liberty International Airport will join LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy airports in welcoming new major upgrades in the coming years. Grimshaw Architects has announced that it has been tapped to design a 33-gate Terminal One that will replace the existing Terminal A, the airport’s oldest terminal. The new terminal will be built on a site just south of the existing terminal.
Terminal One is being designed to accommodate an anticipated 13.6 million annual passengers by 2027. The domestic terminal, designed by Grimshaw and STV and with the help of contractor Tutor Perini/Parsons, will be approximately 1 million square feet and include a pedestrian bridge that links to the EWR AirTrain and a new parking garage. It will also seek LEED Silver certification, according . to the Port Authority.
Construction is expected to begin this coming April, with most of the new terminal being operational by late 2021 says dezeen. The terminal will be expandable for future passenger influx to a 45-gate configuration.
“The most successful contemporary airports of today have a clear vision for the future in anticipation of change,” Grimshaw said in a statement. “Terminal One will position EWR to successfully accommodate a rapidly changing industry and unprecedented levels of growth.”
