JFK Millennium Partners and Vantage Airport Group have opened the competitive solicitation process for the 60,000 sq ft of F&B and retail space at JFK Terminal 6.
The airport operators said they are hoping to attract collaborative concession partners for a “New York City-inspired” shopping and dining experience.
The 1.2 million sq ft international terminal is expected to cost $4.2 billion and is due to open in February 2026.
Interested parties are encouraged to email [email protected] to obtain copies of the RFP documents.
The two-stage process will see respondents submit first proposals along with their qualifications. This phase one closes in January 2024. A second stage will follow involving invited preferred bidders.
“We are delighted to kick off the competitive solicitation process for what will be a world-class shopping and dining experience at the new JFK Terminal 6,” said Helena Williams, Chief Executive Officer, JFK Millennium Partners, the private consortium comprising Vantage Airport Group, American Triple I, RXR Realty, and JetBlue.
“The feedback and conversations from our community outreach activities in support of the project have been very positive.
“We look forward to bringing to life an innovative, dynamic, and service-focused concessions program that celebrates the very best of New York City, alongside offerings from beloved local small businesses.”
