The incredibly beautiful Eero Saarinen designed TWA Flight Center a.k.a. JFK T5, will be renovated as part of a 505-room hotel, meeting space, dining, museum, and observation complex to open in 2019! This is very good news for those of us that are architecture enthusiasts in addition to being aviation enthusiasts.
The plans include a 10,000 square foot observation deck. I really hope this makes the final design for us aviation nuts.
A hotel group named MCR Development and JetBlue are investing $265 million in the project. It is scheduled to break ground in 2016.
