"Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) will design two new satellite concourses, measuring 1.2 million square feet (111,483 square metres), to form part of the new O'Hare project, the City of Chicago revealed yesterday.

The buildings form part of the larger O'Hare Global Terminal project designed by Studio ORD – a team led by US firm Studio Gang that comprises Solomon Cordwell Buenz, Corgan, Milhouse Engineering and Construction and STL Architects...The project will break ground in 2022 and will be phased to coincide with Studio ORD's O'Hare Global Terminal design, and allow continuous operations at the airport.

Studio ORD's wider, competition-winning plan for the airport features a tripartite building that will span 2.25 million square feet (0.2 million square metres). The team, which is being led by Studio Gang founder Jeanne Gang, was announced as the winner of the competition in March this year by the city mayor at the time, Rahm Emanuel."
