Austin Commercial is currently constructing the San Francisco International Airport (SFO) Terminal 1 Boarding Area B Redevelopment, a six year, design-build project. The upgraded T1 will feature new secure connectors linking Boarding Area A through Boarding Area D, and a unique customs secure connector between Boarding Area B and the International Terminal. In addition, the airfield layout will be reconfigured to allow for more flexibility and greater international flight capacity, serving up to 25 gates for both domestic and international travelers.
The BAB project is set to be one of the largest boarding areas on the SFO campus, totaling 619,150 square feet. It will offer a galleria-type retail experience at the entrance to the path through the building, as well as unique artwork by local artists. The open gate lounges will flow with the surrounding dining halls and museums, and there will be a children’s play area integrated into a central lounge at the end of the pier. A mezzanine level is set to house airline clubs and an international connections corridor with views into the concourse and retail areas.
