Columbus Lays Groundwork For New Terminal

The Columbus Regional Airport Authority is laying the groundwork for a new terminal  at John Glenn Columbus International Airport  (CMH). Construction on the new facility is expected to start next year and be completed by 2029, with a reported price tag of $2 billion.

According to a fact sheet put out by the Authority, planning for a new terminal is in the schematic design phase. The new facility will be constructed adjacent to the airport’s Rental Car Center, displacing a parking lot and a cell phone lot.

The current CMH terminal is original to the airport and dates back to 1958. While it has undergone cosmetic improvements in past years, the building is approaching the end of its useful life, the fact sheet noted.

Global architecture, design and planning firm Gensler, along with Columbus-based Moody Nolan are providing professional design services for a new terminal.  Hensel Phelps Construction Co. partnered with local firm Elford and is serving as construction manager at risk.
