“Harvey Milk Terminal 1 set a new benchmark for the airport experience at SFO. This facility embodies the very best values of our region and celebrates the legacy of pioneering civil rights leader Harvey Milk. We are truly honoured to receive the People’s Choice Award from the American Institute of Architects, San Francisco. My thanks go out to the entire project team for this achievement.”

In the second phase, an additional nine gates, an exterior façade, and a new ticket counter area were opened in April 2020. The third phase was completed in May 2021, adding the final seven departure gates, a new post-security connector to the International Terminal, and a museum gallery. The fourth phase will construct a new North check-in lobby and is expected to be completed in spring 2024.
