post share tweet Dive Brief: A super-majority of the Kansas City, MO, city council voted to void a memorandum of understanding with Edgemoor Infrastructure & Real Estate for the development of a new $1 billion terminal at Kansas City International Airport, casting doubt on the firm's future involvement with the project, according to The Kansas City Star  Council members cited a potential $30 million reimbursement commitment to the company — even if the project doesn’t happen — and a lack of specifics around its financing and community benefit plans as their reasoning against finalizing a deal with winning-bidder EdgemoorOne council member introduced a resolution that would permanently cut ties with Edgemoor; a council committee will further discuss the measure this week  Critics of the council's action alleged that it was a roundabout way to award the project to AECOM, the second-place bidder, although, according to The Star, it is not certain whether officials will be permitted to negotiate with AECOM or if the project will have to be put out for bid once again. $(document).ready(function() { window.responsive_ads.prepend_hybrid_ad_html("#advert_hybridad1_mobile", '\u003Cp class\u003D\u0022story\u002Dbelow\u0022\u003EStory continues below\u003C/p\u003E', 1); }); $(document).ready(function() { window.responsive_ads.prepend_hybrid_ad_html("#advert_hybridad2_desktop", '\u003Cp class\u003D\u0022story\u002Dbelow\u0022\u003EStory continues below\u003C/p\u003E', 1); }); Dive Insight: Last month, Kansas City voters, obviously eager for a more expansive and amenity-rich terminal, approved the new project by an overwhelming 75%For many, the vote was supposed to be the culmination of a contentious procurement process that saw consortia led by AECOM and hometown team Burns & McDonnell, who first proposed the terminal project, lose out to Edgemoor. The council's selection committee gave the nod to Edgemoor back in September, but it wasn't even a few weeks later that questions about the selection process began to arise — not the least of which was how the bidders were rankedAn informal tally had AECOM leading the pack as late as mid-August  Massive airport terminal and redevelopment projects are moving forward with greater frequency because many terminals were built during the 1960s and 1970s in order to accommodate an uptick in public air travel. Two projects at LaGuardia Airport in New York City total $8 billion, representing one of the most ambitious airport redevelopments currently underwayLaGuardia Gateway Partners (LGP) is engaged in a $4 billion replacement of Central Terminal B and will operate and maintain the new building when construction is complete. Delta is also building a new terminal at LaGuardia, this one $4 billion as wellWhile the Central Terminal B project will use at least two-thirds private financing and passenger fees, Delta is funding $3.4 billion of the new terminal, with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey picking up the rest of the bill.  Recommended Reading: The Kansas City Star Updated: KCI in the lurch after KC Council shoots down agreement with Edgemoor Follow Kim Slowey on Twitter share tweet post email print Filed Under: Commercial Building Top image credit: flickr user FHKE GET THE NEWSLETTER Subscribe to Construction Dive to get the must-read news & insights in your inbox.
