As many of you probably know Orlando airport is building a new South Terminal which will handle International flights (not sure if that is all international flights).

The project will be executed in phases with the development of the South Terminal Complex and associated facilities in a 300-acre area.
Phase one will see the construction of the new airport terminal building with 16-24 airline gates capable of handling narrow-body, jumbo and super-jumbo aircraft. The project also includes the construction of associated improvements and infrastructure, including roadways, aprons, taxiways, lighting, walkways, aircraft loading bridges, concessions and security improvements. Development of a six-storey parking garage with a capacity to accommodate 2,500 cars, expandable up to 5,000, is also part of the project.

Phase one is planned for completion in four years, of which design, construction and procurement will take 1.5 years, while 2.5 years will be taken for pre-construction and construction.

This year as we were departing we unusually took off from the west runways so the plane taxied past the building site so I was able to take a few photos of progress.

Also on the airport website there is a bit of info and a pretty good 'fly through' of the new terminal.
