The New Terminal 8

JFK Terminal 8 Food Hall

Request For Information (RFI)

JFK T8 Innovation Partners (T8 Partners) is seeking Requests for Information (RFI) for the opportunity to develop and manage the food hall concessions at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) Terminal 8.  

T8 Partners, a joint venture led by Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield (URW), was recently awarded the contract to redevelop and manage the commercial program at Terminal 8 in partnership with American Airlines and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. The $125 million project will feature a Food Hall inside the new Great Hall with more than 60 new shopping and restaurant offerings.  

With an emphasis on locally owned and diverse businesses that will create opportunities for the community, the new program will showcase New York’s world-renowned culinary scene and establish a unique sense of place for travelers. The desired culinary experience and ambiance of the future Food Hall will also reflect the diverse communities adjacent to JFK. 

The RFI seeks to obtain industry feedback and intelligence to help tailor the procurement process and Request for Proposals (RFP) to the needs of the market. 

The RFI is available for download here.
