Queens, NY CoreNet Global New York City Chapter’s (CoreNet NYC) Public Policy Community recently coordinated a construction tour of the $4 billion Central Terminal Building redevelopment project that is currently underway at Terminal B at LaGuardia Airport, which gave members a comprehensive view of the infrastructure upgrades that will ultimately transform the hub into a more efficient and attractive world-class airport.
Skanska, which is a member of the LaGuardia Gateway Partners consortium coordinating the redevelopment project, hosted the tour of the 1.3-million s/f Terminal B, which highlighted the infrastructure upgrades underway to improve the airfield and aircraft taxiways; pedestrian and vehicle transports; and its physical plant.
Syska Hennessy Group, a CoreNet NYC sponsor, coordinated the tour to help further the chapter’s mission to advance the practice of corporate real estate professional development opportunities following a transportation survey this summer, which found that 36% of the chapter’s members expect to rely more heavily on air transportation in the future.
