We’re uniting much of the north side of JFK with an iconic architectural profile and modern amenities
In 2019, JetBlue—the operators of Terminal 5 at the JFK Airport in New York—selected Vantage Airport Group and RXR Realty to design a new terminal on the Terminal 6 site and also replace the existing terminal on the Terminal 7 site. Our job? We were responsible for the winning conceptual design that was ultimately selected by JetBlue, and we later joined with Corgan Architects as the interior designer and lead engineer for the project definition document and basis of design project phase.
Our scope included architectural (conceptual), interior design, civil engineering (landside and airside infrastructure), transportation, and other design services, with the ambition to create an appropriately memorable welcoming experience to New York for international customers.
The terminal will include a new U.S. Customs and Border Protection processing facility and significant airside and landside expansions. The airside work will accommodate 12 wide-body contact gates, an in-apron fueling system, and a deicing recovery system. The landside expansion will include a multi-level roadway system with connections to the existing AirTrain and major utility relocations and connections to the new terminal, an arrivals plaza, and the existing Terminal 5.
With this new terminal in place, JetBlue and their partners will be able to better serve their travelers now and into the future. From the ground up, this terminal will be designed to provide flexibility in terminal processing and support further expansions and emerging technologies.
