Eero Saarinen’s iconic JFK terminal to be reborn as swanky airport hotel

-designed TWA Flight Center is one of NYC’s most iconic structures, but has sat empty and unused on the grounds of the airport for the past 14 years. Now all of that is about to change with the announcement that MCR Development will revamp the famous architect’s building into a lavish hotel and convention center and open it back up to the public. According to Governor Cuomo , who delivered the good news this week at a luncheon in Manhattan, the project will seek LEED certification and include a 505-room hotel, a museum dedicated to the Jet Age and 40,000 square feet of conference space. The renovation will aim for a “complete rehabilitation of the national landmark to its 1962 glory,” according to an MCR press release.
