Description: The LaGuardia Central Terminal project is the portion of the airport replacement project that will replace Terminal B.

The new Terminal B will include 35-gates, a Great Hall, a new West Garage, related roadways and supporting infrastructure.

Souces of Project Support (Non-monetary)

Checkbox Checked Access to Land: 34 year concession beginning on June 1, 2016 and ending in 2050.
Checkbox Checked Revenue Stream (Cash Flow) Protected Through Long Term Commitment(s) of Public Sponsor(s): Like the International Terminal at JFK (in the late 1990's) Terminal B at LaGuardia includes the assumption of operations by the DBFOM contractor at the time of DBFOM contract award. As the transition is made from existing Terminal B restaurants, shops, and stores to similar establishments in the new Terminal B, the revenue stream is expected to increase. There will be more extensive food, retail, and beverage options for passengers in the new facility.
