Preliminary Design Concepts for Replacement Passenger Terminal Unveiled at Authority Meeting

The public is getting its first glimpse of what the replacement passenger terminal may look like. At today’s Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority (BGPAA) meeting, commissioners were presented with three preliminary design concepts for the project, known as Elevate BUR.

The design concepts were shared by a representative from Corgan, the company providing architectural services for the project. The firm is part of the project’s design-build team: Holder, Pankow, TEC, Joint Venture (HPTJV). The renderings (seen here) for each concept
include the terminal’s: entry approach; entry plaza; baggage claim hall; gate lounges; and post- security area.

Starting the week of March 20, the design concepts will be on display within the airport terminals, at the city halls of Burbank, Glendale, and Pasadena, and at the public libraries in the city of Burbank. A QR code will also be available for the community to share feedback on the designs.

At a public hearing on April 17, the BGPAA Commission will vote on the final design concept.

Voters in the City of Burbank approved the replacement terminal in 2016. It will be located in the northeast quadrant of Hollywood Burbank Airport. The 355,000 square foot facility will have 14 gates and will resolve long-standing safety and accessibility issues with the current terminal.
