On April 17, the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority (BGPAA) Commission will vote on the final design for the replacement passenger terminal at Hollywood Burbank Airport. The project, called Elevate BUR, aims to address longstanding safety and accessibility issues with the current terminal.

The BGPAA, which owns and operates the Hollywood Burbank Airport, presented three preliminary design concepts for the 355,000-square-foot facility at a recent meeting. The new terminal will have 14 gates and will be located in the northeast quadrant of the airport. Corgan, the architectural services provider for the project, shared the design concepts at the meeting.

Each design concept includes renderings of the terminal’s entry approach, entry plaza, baggage claim hall, gate lounges, and post-security area. The concepts are named “The Century,” “The Icon,” and “The Paseo.”

Starting the week of March 13, the design concepts will be on display at the airport terminals, as well as at city halls and public libraries in Burbank, Pasadena, and Glendale. The community can share feedback on the designs via a QR code.

The replacement terminal was approved by Burbank voters in 2016. Felicia Williams, the Vice Mayor of Pasadena, serves as Vice President of the BGPAA, while Tyron Hampton, a Councilmember in Pasadena, is the Treasurer. Former Councilmember Andy Wilson is an Airport Authority Commissioner.
