Midfield Satellite Concourse (MSC) South
The Midfield Satellite Concourse (MSC) South is an eight-gate modular complex that will be connected to the West Gates at Tom Bradley International Terminal, and is currently in the midst of pre-construction activities including design and enabling projects.
The MSC South will be a two-story, pre-engineered structure with eight gates that will be capable of serving narrow-body aircraft, such as the Boeing 737 and Airbus 320 families. The pre-engineered structural system will allow for greater flexibility and the ability to build quickly without significant impact on airport operations. The facility is anticipated to replace the eight-gate regional jet terminal located east of Terminal 8.
Currently in the design phase, this southerly extension of the West Gates at Tom Bradley International Terminal was included in the Final Environmental Impact Report previously approved by the Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners in July 2014. The facility will be built to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver, a standard all projects at LAX are required to achieve.
Woods Bagot was selected to design the south concourse in 2019. Skanska is currently handling the enabling projects. A builder is expected to be selected later this year, and the facility is anticipated to be operational by 2025.
