Architects have released concept drawings of how Grand Cayman’s new expanded airport will look following a $55 million redevelopment.
Recently Milestone Properties’ posted about Dart and The Ritz Carlton, Cayman joining forces in order to expand the Owen Roberts airport. We now take a look at the first concept drawing released by the architectural firm. The computer-generated images show a spacious ticketing area and departure lounge, with high ceilings and light flooding in from large windows – a significant contrast to the current overcrowded facility. The redevelopment will more than double the capacity of Owen Roberts International Airport.
Cayman Islands Airports Authority CEO Albert Anderson said, “The interior design is very impressive and I am confident that once completed the new expanded airport will be a first-class terminal facility.” The design phase of the project is being led by Florida-based firm RS&H Group, which produced the concept drawings. The project is expected to take around three years to complete, with construction on the first phase to begin this summer.
