City Council OKs Concourse D project
By A.B. Snedeker

The Atlanta City Council on June 6 awarded a contract to expand the Concourse D centerpoint, bringing better passenger flow, improved access to The Plane Train and the Transportation Mall, and additional retail and restaurant options.

“This expansion project will dramatically improve the overall experience for thousands of passengers traveling through Concourse D every day,” said Aviation General Manager Louis Miller. “These types of projects are key to bolstering our reputation for top-notch customer service.”
                                                                   
The project will add nearly 60,000 square feet across four levels of Concourse D. Two new escalators will be added between the Transportation Mall and main level of the concourse, along with three new elevators connecting the second and third levels. Many of the existing concessions at the centerpoint will be expanded, and the project will create new outlets for food and beverage and mixed retail.

The project was awarded to Holder, Moody and Bryson joint venture. Construction is expected to begin this fall and will be done in phases to limit the impact on passengers. The project, which is estimated to cost about $37 million, is scheduled to be complete in spring 2014.
