JFK's Iconic Terminal to Become the TWA Flight Center Hotel

New, 1 comment

It's a good day for New York City's airports. Not only did Governor Cuomo outline a massive makeover for LaGuardia Airport, but he also revealed the future of JFK Airport's iconic TWA Flight Center, the Eero Saarinen-designed masterpiece that has sat vacant for 14 years. It's been known for awhile that the terminal would one day house a hotel, but who would make that happen or what it would look like remained a mystery until today. MCR Development will turn the historic structure into The TWA Flight Center Hotel, a facility with 505 hotel rooms, 40,000 square feet of meeting space, six to eight dining establishments, and a 10,000-square-foot observation deck.
