JFK Airport

Things may be changing at New York’s JFK airport soon. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey are looking for developers to build a boutique hotel. The proposed150-room hotel would be built between the old TWA terminal and the new JetBlue building, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The now-vacant TWA terminal was designed by Eero Saarinen, who also designed the St. Louis Gateway Arch. The plan is to use the Saarinen-designed space as the hotel’s lobby and entrance, which would also be home to restaurants and shops.

Construction for the new hotel could wrap up 2 years after a developer is signed, but there is an obstacle. The TWA terminal is a New York City landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
