SFO Completes $250M Terminal Renovation With More Space, New Restaurants and Shops
Flight delays at the San Francisco International Airport may not be quite so painful after the renovation of Terminal 3 to include new restaurants and retail.
The $253M renovation opened to passengers yesterday includes a 53k SF expansion of the 400k SF Terminal 3 East Concourse. The renovation began in 2013 and includes eight new dining and retail spaces. New restaurants include a café, a deli, a bar-and-grill and made-to-order Mexican food. Shops offer art, locally sourced olive oils, gourmet food and gifts, a newsstand and more.
The terminal also includes three new boarding gates, a new 6k SF United Club and a larger central security checkpoint. Public artwork, lounge-style seating, free WiFi, 230 power outlets and 200 USB outlets are intended to create a relaxing environment for catching up on work while waiting for the plane. The restrooms even include private changing rooms. (Airport lounges are trending toward luxury.)
