TPA/PIE | Tampa Bay Area Airports

Tampa International Airport was originally established in 1928 as Drew Field. In 1950, it was renamed Tampa International Airport. A terminal east of the eastern runway operated from 1952 until the early 1970s. A new terminal between the two runways was constructed from 1968 to 1971. The design of the terminal resembled a spoke wheel with the main Landside Terminal (baggage claim and ticketing areas) at the hub and six Airside satellites (departure gates and aircraft) at the rim. An automated people mover system would transport airline passengers between the Landside and Airside Buildings. Currently, four of the Airside satellites (A, C, E, and F) are operational.

I thought I would let our international community know what's going on with TPA Airport's future plans.

Until recently, there were plans to build an expansive second terminal to the north of the current one. This building would have comprised of four airsides, plus a people mover system to connect the two terminals together. This plan has since been scrapped due to the economic downfall and the consolidation of the airline industry. A revised plan to modernize the existing terminal is now on the table. There is currently a modernization project underway for the main (or Landside) terminal building.


In the photo above, the elevator banks are being spruced up with modern paneling (you can see the red paneling in the background to the left). The previous facade was that of blue or red bricks. Modern paneling is also covering up the 1970s-era brick walls in other areas of the terminal. Additionally, carpeting is being replaced with tile floors and new amenities are being added to enhance the entire space of the building.

Now for the next part of the modernization, a three-phased plan to relocate facilities and expand the current terminal footprint to handle increased capacity if needed.

Phase 1: Decongestion
This first phase of construction of the airport master plan will:
 Decongest the airport’s roadways and passenger drop‐off and pick‐up curbsides
 Provide connections to regional transportation systems
 Allow for expansion of rental car operations, which will reach capacity in 2016
 Add spaces to long‐term parking garage by moving rental car operations from garage
 Increase opportunities for commercial development on the south part of the airport campus to
diversify the airport’s revenue stream
 Increase passenger and meeter/greeter circulation areas in the main terminal.
 Enable new concessions opportunities
 Creates new curbside at rental car center for passengers using public transportation, commercial and
personal vehicles
Timeline: 2013‐2018
Projects: Consolidated Rental Car Facility
1.3‐mile Automated People Mover connecting rental car facility to main terminal
Transfer Level Expansion and Concessions Redevelopment Consolidated rental car facility size: 2.3 million square feet
Rental cars removed from roadways: 8,500 during peak days Long‐term parking spaces gained: 1,200
Square‐footage gained in main terminal: 50,319
Cost: $841 million

Phase 2: Enabling
This second construction phase of the master plan involves projects that will allow for future expansion of the main terminal as passenger demand dictates.
Timeline: 2018‐2023
Projects: Hotel and Service Building Replacement and Demolition
Air Traffic Control Tower relocation
Employee Parking Structure near rental car facility Cost: $452 million

Phase 3: Expansion
The final phase of the master plan will result in an expanded main terminal capable of handling 34.7 million annual passengers, leaving land on the northern part of the airport campus available for future development. This phase:
 Creates Airside D, with international and domestic gates
 Creates an international curbside at the main terminal
 Creates a consolidated security checkpoint for Airsides C and D in the main terminal
 Increases concessions space, diversifying airport revenue streams
Timeline: 2020‐2028
Projects: North Expansion of Main Terminal, including security screening checkpoint
New International Terminal (Airside D) Additions to Airside C
New customs and immigration checkpoints in main terminal
Cost: $1.2 billion
Total construction costs: $2.5 billion
Funding sources: Airport revenue bonds, grant funding, public/private partnerships Passenger capacity for existing main terminal by 2041: 34.7 million Passengers served in 2012: 16.8 million
Proposed on‐airport land use: Property on the east side of the airport campus is targeted for cargo operations; maintenance, repair and overhaul businesses; MRO support businesses; just‐in‐time fulfillment and other aviation‐related businesses.
East side property: 228 acres
Perimeter parcel land use: A study of seven parcels on the perimeter of the airport campus identified six properties for potential commercial, revenue‐generating development. One parcel, Area 5, located adjacent to the Dana Shores residential neighborhood, will remain designated as a scenic reserve.
Total area studied: 174.9 acres Area 5 area: 23 acres

Some renderings of these plans are shown below:

This is what the southern end of the property would look like, with additional parking and a people mover line. The line would then extend down West Short Blvd to a proposed intermodal center for buses and possibly light rail and or commuter rail.

From today, you can now include St. Petersburg/Clearwater International Airport (PIE) to the discussion here so that you can have a greater flexibility of topics related to Tampa Bay's two main gateways.

Ground officially broke for the "Decongestion" project at TPA on November 20.

http://www.tampabay.com/news/busines...-today/2207232

Currently, the eastern Ground Transportation area is closed to make way for the East Terrace and APM.

Meanwhile, things are looking great at PIE!
