TWA Terminal and Hotel update

January 18, 2018

The TWA Hotel, a project by the developer MCR to revitalize Eero Saarinen’s iconic TWA Terminal at JKF Airport is moving forward at an impressive pace. One of the two hotel blocks being built behind the terminal has topped out as of December. This follows the opening of a retro-themed sales lounge at One World Trade Center this past fall. Future plans for the JFK site include a restored jet aircraft that will house a restaurant and bar, and a museum featuring furniture, TWA uniforms, destination posters, and other TWA memorabilia. The project is expected to be completed in 2019.
