We have just inaugurated the expansion of the Cibao International Airport in the Dominican Republic, a pioneering project for the Caribbean region, at the same level as some of the most ambitious international airport projects.
Luis Abinader, president of the Dominican Republic, led the act, breaking ground and calling the intervention "important" and "necessary" for the prosperous development of the northern region of the country. By his side, Óscar Torrejón (CEO and partner of luis vidal + architects), presented the design and talked about the details of this expansion.
The intervention, requiring an investment of 300 million dollars, will provide the airport with more space for aircraft parking and expand the existing runway. It will improve the overall traveller experience within the terminal, allowing for double the number of passengers that currently cross the threshold to the Caribbean region every year. All of this, while manifesting the sustainable attitude that characterizes each of our designs.
With this project, Santiago de los Caballeros joins the list of cities in which luis vidal + architects leads the airport sector, alongside other urban areas such as Boston, Pittsburgh and Dallas.
