LaGuardia Gateway Partners (LGP) has announced that on August 5, 2020, it will open the first seven gates of the Western Concourse of the new Terminal B on August 5, 2020, the company said.
With the opening of these seven gates, Terminal B is one step closer to Governor Andrew M. Cuomo´s vision of a 21st century LaGuardia Airport. The project is possible due to the collaborative efforts between the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, private partners and construction workers across New York State who have worked tirelessly to bring this design to life.
The new 218,000 square-foot concourse will open in two phases, to allow the remaining gates in the original terminal to stay operational during construction. In this first phase, seven of 17 gates will open, along with the Gotham News newsstand and a portion of the concourse´s park, featuring greenery and benches. The concourse features plenty of natural light and soaring ceilings up to 55 feet high. Its restrooms are thoughtfully designed, including spacious stalls and above sink shelves to keep belongings dry.
