Denver architecture firm competing to design new terminal at Chicago O’Hare airport
DENVER — Denver-based company Fentress Architects is among five firms competing to design a brand-new terminal at Chicago O’Hare International Airport.
Fentress is known for a number of landmarks in Denver, including Denver International Airport, Broncos Stadium at Mile High and 1999 Broadway. The latter is a high-rise office building that wraps around a Catholic church.
The new portion of O’Hare is dubbed the “global terminal and concourse.” It is estimated to cost $8.5 billion.
Fentress is competing against a number of internationally renowned architecture firms, including those of Santiago Calatrava, Norman Foster and Skidmore, Owings and Merrill.AlertMe
