Demolition of old LaGuardia car park clears the way for new Central Terminal development

The $4 billion redevelopment of LaGuardia Airport's Central Terminal (Terminal B) has passed a major milestone with the demolition of the old P2 parking garage.

Its demolition clears the site for the future construction of the Central Terminal B's new Departures Hall. 

And, while construction of the new complex is ongoing, LaGuardia Gateway Partners has also been upgrading the existing Central Terminal B as part of a $5 million investment to improve passenger experience.

Upgrades to the existing facillty include replacing washroom ceilings, lighting fixtures and improving air flow for a better bathroom experience; enhancing the west side food court with better tables, seating and more charging stations; updating in-terminal signage for easier navigation; and repairing and painting common area walls for a "fresher look".

In addition lighting throughout the terminal is being upgraded with new bulbs and system repairs to make dark spaces brighter; escalators and elevators are big repaired and renovated and  the roof of concourse A is being repaired.LaGuardiaCTB3

When complete in 2021 the new-look terminal will boast 1.3 million square feet of new space and dual pedestrian bridges spanning active taxi lanes – a first in the world.
