Global company Grimshaw Architects, in partnership with STV as lead design firm, will serve as lead design architect for a new 33-gate terminal at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey. When complete, the $1.41-billion terminal will replace the airport’s existing Terminal A.

The new Terminal One will feature 92,903 m2 (1 million sf) of space with gates spread across a two-level T-shaped building, as well as a pedestrian bridge to link the airport’s monorail system to a new parking facility. The building will include ample space, which will allow for added passenger amenities, as well as more efficient check-in and security screening processes.

The facility’s new pedestrian bridge will link the airport’s monorail system to its parking garage.

The airport currently has three passenger terminals—Terminals A, B, and C—all three of which were originally constructed in the 1970s and ’80s.

“Newark has a rich architectural history dominated by the modular concrete structures of the existing terminals,” said Mark Husser, Grimshaw partner. “Relating to this context while creating a light, modern, steel and glass building with open sightlines and natural light, the new Terminal One will be a world-class gateway serving an ambassadorial role for the New Jersey and New York region and establish a new trajectory for the future.”

Terminal One is slated for a partial opening in 2021 and is expected to be fully operational by 2022. Additionally, the terminal will be expandable to meet future passenger influx in a 45-gate configuration.
