Folse Market under construction, north terminal at LANOIA

Last week, Manning Architects took a field trip to observe the construction of the eleven bars and restaurants in the Louis Armstrong International Airport North Terminal designed by our team along with ICRAVE for Delaware North. Consequently, this provided a sneak peak of the current state of the airport construction, which we were delighted to get an early viewing of.

The North Terminal sits just above the existing runways for MSY and will serve the city well as a much brighter, more efficient, and easier to navigate space.
