• Dramatic Expansion of Burbank Terminal


    BURBANK (CNS) – A new terminal that could be 68 percent larger than the one that now exists is being planned for Bob Hope Airport, according to officials.

    The replacement terminal would be 355,102 square feet, compared with 210,599 square feet in the existing terminal, according to information presented to the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority last week, the Los Angeles Times reported. The new terminal would have 14 gates — same as now.

    Dan Feger, the airport’s executive director, said in remarks reported by The Times that the size of the new terminal might eventually be reduced, but the current square footage will be used in the project’s environmental impact study, which is slated to begin before the end of the year.

    The existing terminal is 80 years old and would be demolished after the completion of a new terminal to create more space between it and the taxiways, according to The Times. Airport officials say a new terminal is needed because the existing building is too close to the runways — 250 feet instead of the 750 feet required by Federal Aviation Administration safety standards.

    The proposed terminal would include more publicly usable space because some of the airport authority’s functions, which take up 13,000 square feet, would be moved to another building on the airport property, The Times reported.
