So Maybe There Won't Be a TWA Hotel at JFK After All
It's been over two years since any news on the possible future of the iconic architectural landmark, designed for TWA by Eero Saarinen. The will-it-or-won't-it continues, as hotel developer André Balazs goes head-to-head with JFK Airport over his proposed design for a 150-room property.
Page Six reports that "Differing opinions over the design have become a sticking point in the negotiations." This definitely isn't the most positive endorsement of whatever blueprints Balazs has rolled out. We stick by our pronouncement from two years ago, that a hotel is a nice idea, provided the design is respected, but likely won't happen at all.
