Governor Andrew Cuomo has unveiled a $4 billion plan to redevelop New York's outdated LaGuardia Airport. Originally built in 1939, LaGuardia has been running inefficiently and overcapacity for decades.

The redesign, envisioned by HOK and Parsons Brinckerhoff, will unify the airport's fragmented terminals with a single roof, while providing expanded transportation access, elite passenger amenities and increased taxiway space. Terminal B will be replaced with a larger structure that will (eventually) connect to the renovated Terminals C and D.

"LaGuardia is slow. It's dated. It is a terrible front door entranceway," Cuomo said. "We are transforming LaGuardia into a globally-renowned, 21st century airport that is worthy of the city and state of New York."

Construction is expected to begin in 2016, following approval. The western half of the airport will open in 2019, with full completion slated for 2021. The second half of the airport will be redeveloped by Delta Air Lines and completed within the next five years.
