Later today, Lambert Airport will announce the details of the most extensive renovation of its terminal ever. This work will be the second phase of the Airport Experience Program.
Beginning this fall, the airport will spend about 2 years and $50 million improving passenger services and airport operations in Lambert's Terminal 1 (designed by Minoru Yamasaki in 1956), one of the most familiar buildings in St. Louis. The most visible elements of the changes will be inside in the A and C concourses, which serve a majority of Lambert's airlines. Those areas will be realigned, repainted, re-floored, re-ceilinged, re-signed, and re-lit. Combined with earlier work on the terminal's domes and new signage throughout the airport area, our landmark terminal, currently starring in a major movie, should look spectacular.
The construction required will occupy 150 workers for almost 400,000 hours.
Watch for the announcement.
