The “Landmark Hotel” At JFK Airport


The TWA (Trans World Airlines) Terminal at JFK International Airport is one of most famous buildings in the world known for its amazing lines and curvature. Eero Saarinen designed the building and it opened to the public in 1962. The City of New York designated both the interiors and the exteriors of the terminal a historic landmark in 1994. In October of 2001, it ceased operations as a flight terminal. Now the iconic bird like building has a new lease on life as an airport hotel. MCR Development is reviving the terminal, restoring it to its original state and is also adding 505 hotel rooms. According to the plans the hotel is going to have a large balcony facing the runways of the airport for guest viewing, a rooftop swimming pool and an old TWA airplane that will be revamped into a restaurant. All of this has the support of New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo. The Hotel is set to open in 2019.
