Harvey Milk Terminal 1 Redevelopment Program

Terminal 1 Exterior
T1 Curbside
Harvey Milk Terminal


SFO is redeveloping Terminal 1 (T1), one of its oldest terminals, to meet the needs of modern travelers and revolutionize the guest experience.  T1 was built in the early 1960s and over time has become less able to accommodate the millions of passengers that it handles each year.  When fully completed in 2024, T1 will elevate SFO’s standard of providing a world-class, environmentally friendly travel experience and is expected to meet or exceed the award-winning standards of Terminal 2 and Terminal 3 Boarding Area E.  T1 is anticipated, at minimum, to receive an environmental LEED© Gold certification.  

The $2.4 billion project includes:

  • design and construction of T1’s north, south and central areas,
  • a new Boarding Area B (B/A B) with improved passenger circulation and access to its 24 gates, new passenger loading bridges and new concessions,
  • a new central area with improved spaces for passenger check-in; a consolidated security checkpoint; a re-composure area; a new common use Baggage Handling System and baggage claims and a new mezzanine with connections to the AirTrain and the Central Parking Garage.

A number of interim projects will take place to make room for the new T1 and B/A B.  This includes the construction of a temporary B/A B which utilizes a portion of the existing facility; the relocation of Alaska and Delta Airlines, the Security Access Office (SAO)/Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) offices and Taxilanes H&M; and the demolition of existing buildings including the old TWA Hangar and the SkyWest Commissary.
