BONUS: Two New Renders!

Oh wow. I hadn’t seen (or perhaps noticed) that rendering before, showing the new T1 as well as the whole airport. It’s so much larger than it looks in the renderings that only show the terminal by itself. It’s massive!

The renderings also show the new JetBlue Terminal 6 as well. It seems to show the entire ‘JFK Vision’ the PA has.

It still really bothers me how disconnected the airport is in terms of design cohesiveness, it could really be 5 different airports all just closely together with how different each terminal looks. I liked the older design scheme that used the design of Terminal 4 and made a cohesive interconnected structure for the other terminals and had AA’s Terminal 8 completed the way it was intended. Of everything being done, not finishing out Terminal 8 has to be the most bothersome thing.

All that being said I’m glad they are redoing/tearing down the terminals that were just all over the place (Terminal 1 & 6) and at least they’re filling in those spaces that seemed empty before. The newer renders of Terminal 1 do look much better than the exaggerated initial ones. Something also needs to be done about the spaghetti network of roads in the center.

The NY Governor’s Office made a press release about the terminal project and the renderings I linked there’s some high-res versions available there.

Looks like the the Terminal 4 to Terminal 1 connection was removed again. Such a shame.

Nothing new in the renderings, just what we’ve already seen.

A new presentation I found includes some new renderings. These interior renderings look absolutely fantastic. The overall ‘tackiness’ was totally watered down and this is something JFK definitely deserves.

Looks like the T1 to T4 connector returns as well which is a major plus. It also looks like its airside since it connects to what looks like a gate area.

Enjoy these nice exterior and interior shots.




In other news, Terminal 4 was awarded LEED Platinum.

United decided to leave JFK because ‘it has too small of a schedule to be competitive’. It’s such a big deal that several news outlets covered the news.
