NYC Airport Lobby Calls for Speedier Plan to Redevelop LaGuardia

A group representing New York’s real estate and hotel industries wants to speed the rebuilding of LaGuardia Airport’s 50-year-old central terminal.

The Global Gateway Alliance is sending a letter today to the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey urging it to choose a builder and operator for a $3.6 billion terminal by its December board meeting. The selection process, which began three years ago, shouldn’t be delayed by a contest to redesign the city’s two major airports that was announced by Governor Andrew Cuomo last month, wrote Joe Sitt, chairman of the group.
