Hudson Group McNally Jackson Laguardia Airport

A SoHo staple, McNally Jackson opened its first airport location in the newly constructed Terminal B, through the help of the Hudson Group and Holt Construction Corp.

An independent bookseller at the epicenter of Manhattan’s literary culture, McNally Jackson is a true mecca for book lovers. Holt Construction was selected as General Contractor for the build-out of the McNally Jackson store located in Terminal B – Concourse B, within LaGuardia Airport (LGA).

The overall project featured custom millwork, and wood finishing meant to bring the classic posh book store atmosphere to LGA. The space features a centerpiece desk made out of leather, resembling a steamer trunk in addition to custom lighting fixtures with various books built into the steam pipe like fixtures. Hardwood floors and vibrant blue partitions separate the space from the terminal.

The overall scope of the project included electrical, HVAC, LED Hailey lighting, new displays and finishes. With carpentry, tile and electrical trades working in the area, the team was able to finish the project two weeks ahead. Integrating partitions and installing the millwork, the team faced a challenge when they discovered leakage coming through the open ceiling. The team was able to take precautionary measures to ensure the protection of both the millwork and the site as a whole.
