Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) said this week that its Concourse A Expansion – Phase II construction that will add 10 new gates is underway and on schedule for completion in fall 2024.
The 191,848-square-foot expansion will feature auto-tinting window glass to help control the temperature and sunlight inside, gate seats with integrated power to charge electronic devices, terrazzo flooring in the center walkways and two new art pieces that are currently in development.
The $231 million addition will also be wider than the airport’s other domestic concourses, and will provide an open, spacious feel accented by high ceilings and scenic windows. Concessions will include a retail store, a restaurant and two open bars, the airport said, adding that restrooms will be equipped with modern finishes and water-saving toilets and sinks.
JE Dunn and McFarland, a joint venture, are construction contractors for the project, which was designed by C Design and Perkins+Will.
The work on the Concourse A Expansion comes a month after CLT formally opened its Concourse E Expansion, which added one gate to the concourse’s north end and relocated nine existing gates to provide more hold room space.
