The age of glamorous jet-setting may be long gone, but one of the most iconic landmarks of that era is coming back in a big way.
Construction has been underway since December on transforming the unused TWA Terminal at JFK airport into a luxury hotel. This week, the developer MCR revealed a new rendering of what the hotel is expected to look like upon its completion in 18 months.
In addition to preserving the architectural integrity of the exterior of Eero Saarinen’s terminal, MCR is also making a clear effort to honor the mid-century interiors of the structure. Above, you can see the main structure of the hotel, along with the wings behind it which will contain about 500 rooms.
