New York, NY – Developers Sought to Turn Vacant TWA Terminal Into Hotel

    7

     Former TWA Terminal At JFK New York, NY – Developers are being sought for plans that would turn the vacant TWA terminal at New York’s Kennedy Airport into the centerpiece of a boutique hotel.

    The once-glamorous terminal was designed by modernist Eero Saarinen (EHR’-oh SAHR’-uh-nehn), whose works include the St. Louis Gateway Arch.

    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey envisions a 150-room hotel in the space between the old TWA terminal and the new JetBlue building.

    Executive Director Chris Ward tells The Wall Street Journal that the plans could result in a hotel with the “hippest, coolest-looking front office.”

    The agency says construction could finish two years after a developer is signed.

    Some hurdles remain. The TWA terminal is a New York City landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

    1. I must admit, when you see it from the JetBlue terminal it really is a beautiful piece of architecture. It is such a shame that it is in such disrepair. What good is declaring it a “historic place” if it will just sit and rot with broken windows, etc. Anyone willing to put the money in to build a thriving business should be allowed to do it, so long as they preserve what is “historical” about the building.
