First announced in December 2021, the new $9.5 billion privately funded Terminal 1 project at JFK International Airport officially began earlier this month.

The 2.4 million square foot international terminal will become JFK’s largest when completed. Construction will take place in phases on the sites of the current Terminals 1 and 2 as well as the old Terminal 3.

A group of companies including Carlyle, JLC Infrastructure and Ullico are among the private partners behind the venture, which bills Gensler as the design and AECOM Tishman as the general contractor.

“We do it better, because right now you’re going through a place like Penn Station and the old LaGuardia and the old airports, you just wanted to look down. You’re hanging out, you know, just kind of in the masses . You had no reason to be optimistic, to make you smile,” New York Governor Kathy Hochul remarked on the milestone. “Now when you walk through our airports you see beautiful works of art that uplift the spirit, uplift the soul. denied because people before us didn’t have the vision we have today.”

The arrivals and departures hall and the first of the new gates are expected to be completed in 2026.
