Renovations to continue in 2024 on G Concourse

The renovation of MSP Airport's G Concourse will continue in 2024, thanks to a $10 million grant from the FAA announced Monday, Feb. 27, funded by the recently approved Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

The federal funds will be used to rehabilitate and reconfigure the G Concourse at Terminal 1 between existing gates G8 and G13 to expand the footprint between the concourse's existing gate pods. This will allow for increased gate seating, concessions spaces and new restrooms. No new gates will be added.

Footings, foundation and utility work will begin this year to prepare for the building work in 2024. MSP is one of 99 U.S. airports to be awarded grant funding by the FAA's nearly $1 billion 2023 Airport Terminal Program. The MAC will likely apply for another Airport Terminal Program grant for the second phase of the work in 2024.

A similar renovation of the G Concourse between Gates G17 and G22 began in 2020 and is nearly complete, except for the new Delta Sky Club and art to be installed in the rotunda.

With that renovation – and the addition of art and new restaurants – the G Concourse is evolving into one of the most dynamic concourses at MSP. Among the new additions are:

  • The Colonnade Gallery, now featuring the "Hidden Dimensions" photo exhibit.
  • The "MSP liminal poetic art intervention" outside the restrooms across from Gate G17.
  • The opening of the Mill City Tavern with views to the airfield.

The 2024 renovations of the G Concourse will be consistent with these earlier design elements and improvements.  

The federal funding was secured with help from Senators Amy Klobuchar and Tina Smith, and Representative Betty McCollum.
