Yesterday the Landrieu Administration released their plans for a brand new terminal complex at the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport.
Landrieu and NOAB unveiled conceptual renderings of the 650,000-square-foot terminal complex that features two concourses with 30 gates, a consolidated checkpoint, seamless connections between concourses and 2000 parking garage spaces.
The North Terminal design team consists of acclaimed architect Cesar Pelli of Pelli Clarke Pelli, Manning Architects, Crescent City Aviation Team and Leo A. Daly/ Atkins. The $826 Million development includes plans for a $72 million power plant project, $87 million for a flyover addition from I-10 to improve access to the airport, and $17 million for an on-site hotel.
Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport currently serves 80% of the Louisiana’s commercial air traffic, provides over 12,450 direct and indirect jobs for the community, and facilitates over $2.6 billion in tourism spending. In 2013, MSY saw over 9 million passengers.
