Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM) will be designing the 2 new satellite concourse.
Two satellite concourses, S1 and S2, will play a significant role in transforming the face of O’Hare—with modern, larger new concourses nearly double the width of our terminal concourses today. They are being designed with flexible gates, to accommodate both narrow and wide-body airplanes..
Not only will these modern, bright concourses add gate capacity and passenger amenities, they are also an enabling project for the Global Terminal. Because of these concourses, which will be accessible via underground tunnels, O’Hare will not lose any gate capacity while Terminal 2 is being rebuilt as the new Global Terminal.
