San Francisco International Airport is revving up to re-introduce the world to Terminal 1. Built in the 1960s, and recently renamed for civil rights leader Harvey B. Milk, the newly redesigned Harvey Milk Terminal 1 will open to the public for the first time this summer. 

The spiffy new building boasts an Apple-esque vibe, with giant panels of floor-to-ceiling glass creating a sense of airy spaciousness. But the windows serve more than just aesthetic function: They are made of “smart” glass by Silicon Valley company View that’s specially treated to reduce glare, eliminate weird color tints and minimize unwanted heat within the terminal. Benefits include a lower carbon footprint from unnecessary cooling costs, increased comfort for people within the building, and possibly increased sales for terminal retailers.

Want to get a sneak peek before everyone else? Come to SFO’s “Community Day” open house Saturday, July 20, 2019, from noon to 4:00 pm. While the event is free, it is time-ticketed and you will only be granted admission during your allotted time slot. Tickets will be available beginning June 3 on a first-come, first-serve basis.
