The Trans World Airlines flight center at JFK airport in New York will soon become a hotel. The intention is to restore the building to its original glamour while also creating the new 505 room design.
It was 1962 when the location was first built, at what was then called Idlewild Airport. It was designed by accomplished architect Eero Saarinen. Efforts will be made to keep the 1960’s vibe alive in both the interior and the exterior of the location. They will also create an onsite museum containing memorabilia relating to TWA’s history.
The large space will also include a 50,000 square foot event center, six bars, eight restaurants, and a 10,000 square foot observation deck from where people will be able to view the airport runway.
The hotel should be open for business sometime in 2018.
