In partnership with American Airlines, Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield (URW) Airports, and Holt Construction, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) announced the start of construction on the commercial redevelopment of John F. Kennedy International Airport’s (JFK) Terminal 8.

This 125 million USD commercial redevelopment programme is being conducted by JFK T8 Innovation Partners, a joint venture led by URW and equity partner, Phoenix Infrastructure Group

It aims to transform the customer experience at the terminal through a complete redesign and expansion of the concessions programme. This will include new dining, retail, duty-free shopping, performance space, and new digitally enabled experiences.

The commercial redevelopment follows the 400 million USD expansion of Terminal 8, which was completed in November 2022.

To enhance the airport during construction, URW has collaborated with a Queens-based artist studio, Vaughn Bentley Creative, to transform the site’s construction barricades into a canvas.

Port Authority Executive Director Rick Cotton said:

A reimagined commercial program paired with inspiring public art will elevate the passenger experience at Terminal 8, as part of our $19 billion transformation of JFK Airport. Across JFK, we are focused on creating a sense of place unique to New York with locally-owned concessions operating alongside national brands and public art that reflects the culture and traditions of the communities around the airport.
