SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco airport officials revealed the new design of Terminal One on Tuesday. When the terminal reopens it will be named the Harvey B. Milk Terminal in honor of San Francisco's slain civil rights leader and member of the Board of Supervisors.

“I think it’s just an exceptional way to memorialize what he has meant to San Francisco," Airport Director Ivar Satero said.

The complete makeover will cost $2.4 billion and is expected to be completed in 2022.

Renderings depict a gleaming glass state-of-the-art airport hub that the project’s design manager Farrah Young said will surpass even the modern international terminal and Terminal Two,

“This project was very much about innovation, technology, environmentalism as well as experience so our hope is that we are raising the standard for passenger travel to a whole new level," said Young.

To pay tribute to Milk, the first openly gay man elected in San Francisco, officials are seeking contributions from the public. They're crowdsourcing art and historic photos commemorating Milk, who was assassinated in City Hall with then-Mayor George Moscone in 1978. 

“We felt that it was important for communities around San Francisco to be a part of developing the content," said airport spokesman Doug Yakel. "We’re very honored to be able to allow Terminal One to be a place that can help tell the story of the life and legacy of Harvey Milk, but we really want our community to be a part in designing what’s included in that content.”

Satero said officials are specifically looking for depictions of Milk’s contributions to the community, “We're asking that you submit images from that era around the LGBT community, around his campaign; those kinds of depictions of the life of Harvey Milk and how important he was to San Francisco. The community piece around this is so important.”

You can submit photos and artwork on the airport’s website, flysfo.com.
