Will it be far from the center of the city?
Yes it will. That´s why several transportation options are being considered.

THE CALL FOR TENDER FOR AIRPORT'S MAIN TERMINAL CONSTRUCTION HAS BEEN LAUNCHED!

Last Friday, the call for tender for the Airport's main terminal was launched by the Federal Government and published on their e-procurement website (COMPRANET).

The main characteristics of the terminal will be, among others:

- Capacity: 70 million passengers per year
- Built-up area: 760,000 sqm
- 4 floors
- 94 jetways. Some of them will accomodate A380's
- 42 remote positions
- It will be a big "X" shaped building
- Use of state-of-the-art, light construction materiales will be required so as fewer columns will be needed, allowing more visibility inside the terminal.
- The design also includes use of rainwater, sunlight and air in order to achieve a self-sufficient operation of the building.













Cheers

I share that opinion. Asian-like, unseen in the Americas. Another sign of Mexico as an economy growing bigger. I hope the outcome will be as beautiful as it is designed and it will be utilized well (I assume it will as airlines are still pushing the existing airport capacity to the limit).

From the mexican forum, orriginaly posted by afrmx.

This are the basics for the "airport city", a cluster of buildings that will be devolved within the new airport territory.

The information already specifies the maximun hights for the buildings and the construction density.




This information is based in in the operative zones and security of the runways.



Here is the Master Plan for the whole project and its evolution through the years.

The GACM (organization in charge of the project) has started it's roadshow to promote it's emission of Green Bonds. These bonds will be placed through the Mexico City Airport Trust and will generate about 6 billion dollars from here until 2018. These bonds are to be used exclusively for green projects within the NAICM. Some of the eligible projects include:

  • Sustainable buildings
  • Renewable energy
  • Energy efficiency
  • Water and waste management
  • Prevention and control of pollutants
  • Biodiversity and conservation


The three major credit-ratings agencies have already issued their pre-sale ratings.

Standard&Poors has assigned a BBB+ rating and a negative outlook.

Moody's has assigned a Baa1 rating and a negative outlook.

Fitch has assigned a BBB+ rating and a stable outlook.


Overall the ratings reflect the good capacity of GACM to pay off the contracted financial commitments through the TUA which is the tax paid by every passenger that uses the current airport, and which will use the new airport. This being an exclusive market, means that there won't be any risk of loosing that income other than the normal fluctuations of the air traffic market which everyone points to keep on growing on the coming years. On the other side the negative outlooks are based on the overall weaknesses of the mexican government, the recent budget cuts, the insecurity, the administrative weakness and the weakened peso against the dollar all make for a less stable economical and financial outlook which can directly affect the project like any other government project.

In the end it shows that the NAICM is stronger for being a public project, but at the same time it is weaker for being a public project.

Hopefully the bonds will be placed in full, to keep on pushing this project forward.

So, after seeing these new blueprints, was the cacti garden discarded from the project (it was supposed to be at the entrance of the airport) in order to give space to the subway terminal + parking lot?

I personally find the parking lot + subway terminal rather aesthetically unappealing, but necessary nonetheless.

About this passage of the work description:

The highest point is 45 m, so I can't really figure out how it could be possible, any further information about it?
