Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority (BGPAA) Commissioners have chosen a design concept known as “The Icon” for the replacement passenger terminal.

The Icon is one of three concepts presented to the Commission for consideration. In making their final decision, Commissioners weighed comments from a public survey, feedback from design meetings held earlier in the development process, and guidelines of the development agreement the BGPAA has with the City of Burbank.

The design concepts were generated by Corgan, which is providing architectural services for the project, in association with CannonDesign. The firms are part of the project’s design-build team: Holder, Pankow, TEC, Joint Venture (HPTJV). Jacobs Project Management is providing project management services.

Voters in the City of Burbank approved the replacement terminal in 2016. It will be located in the northeast quadrant of Hollywood Burbank Airport. The 355,000 sq ft facility will have 14 gates and will resolve long-standing safety and accessibility issues with the current terminal, the authority said.

“The Commission looked at what would be a ‘statement of arrival’,” said Emily Gabel-Luddy, Burbank Commissioner and president of the BGPAA. “‘The Icon’ affords that statement with its roofline and its deep shadow-giving cover over the plaza and arrival point, but also how it goes across the face of the parking structure.”
