Construction is Underway at JFK's TWA Terminal Hotel Site
Here at TPG, we've been anxiously awaiting the arrival of JFK's new TWA Flight Center Hotel — announced just last year, the site has sat mostly idle until now. Work has officially begun on the new hotel in partnership with JetBlue, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and MCR Development.
The Eero Saarinen-designed terminal will undergo a conversion into a hotel with more than 500 rooms, while respecting Saarinen's original design of course. Slated to open in the fall of 2018, the hotel will also feature amenities open to the general flying public, including a number of bars and restaurants, an aviation-themed exhibit space, meeting spaces and an absolutely huge 100,000-square-foot observation deck perfect for plane spotting.
The Points Guy recently got a behind-the-scenes tour of of the old TWA terminal before it was closed to the public, which you can view in this episode of TPGtv, below, starting at 0:41.
