PHX Opens New South Concourse, Lobby

Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport this week opened the second component of its Terminal 3 Modernization Program – a new South Concourse and a post-security lobby area known as a terminal processor.

The new development features 15 airline gates and all new shops, restaurants and customer amenities. Concessionaires in the revamped space include HMSHost and SSP America for food and beverage, and Stellar Partners and a joint venture led by Hudson Group for retail.
In the South Concourse, new restaurant offerings include Christopher’s, Mustache Pretzels, Panera Break, SanTan Brewing Company, Shake Shack, Starbucks (inside Best of the Valley), The Tavern and Giant Coffee (inside Ironwood by Hudson). Retail concepts in the South Concourse include L’Occitane, Sol Shades, Best of the Valley, Indigenous/Mosaic and Tech on the Go. A new 7,500-square-foot Delta Sky Club is also open on the South Concourse.

In the Level 4 lobby, also known as the Terminal Processor, openings include Passage by Hudson, Johnston & Murphy, InMotion Entertainment, Travel Outfitters, Sugarfina, The Parlor, Original ChopShop, Habit Burger Grill, Uberrito Fresh Mex, Market Grab n Go, and Starbucks.

“These new locations in Sky Harbor reflect the sophisticated personality and culture of Phoenix and the state of Arizona and we are very excited to connect with even more travelers in the airport with superior retail experiences,” says Padraig Drennan, president and COO of Stellar Partners.

Like the first phase of the Terminal 3 Modernization Program (completed in 2016), the South Concourse features views of Phoenix’s desert landscape and an abundance of natural lighting. The new, modern look aims to provide travelers with a more enjoyable and efficient travel experience. In addition to the views and new shops and restaurants, travelers will also find access to power from nearly every seat, a children’s play area known as PHX Play-Viation Park and other amenities such as a nursing room, an animal relief area and public art installations.

Additional shops and restaurants will open in 2020 after renovations to the North Concourse are complete.
