Construction has begun on a new Turner-Flatiron joint venture at the San Diego International Airport. The T1 project will replace the outdated Terminal 1.


“Today‘s groundbreaking is the culmination of years of planning and collaboration with stakeholders and the greater San Diego community. This is truly your airport and I‘m so excited that this day has finally come,” said Kimberly Becker, airport authority president, and CEO.


Construction entails three components: terminals and roadways; airside improvements; and a new administration building. The administration building will be completed first, with the opening date anticipated for late 2023.


The terminals and roadways components will be completed in phases. The first phase will include 19 gates, an elevated departures roadway, outdoor check-in pavilions, a dedicated, on-airport arrivals roadway, and a five-story parking structure. A second phase will add 11 gates for a total of 30. Airside Improvements will come last with a completion date in mid-2028.


The entire project is budgeted at $3.4 million and is expected to create between 15,000 to 20,000 construction-related jobs.
