San Francisco's New United Terminal Gets an Artsy Upgrade


United is celebrating the reopening of its Terminal 3 East at San Francisco International Airport (SFO) with an online sweepstakes for two free tickets. All voters need to do is choose their favorite feature at the $138 million renovation of T3E, helmed by design firms Hansel Phelps, Gensler, and KPA.

Here, six aspects of the new space T+L loves most:

  1. You can stay connected: Over 375 power outlets dispersed at work stations, make it easier than ever to keep your gadgets up and running—to better enjoy SFO's free WiFi.

  2. Or you can disconnect: Yoga studios let visitors find their zen before that longhaul to Hong Kong.

  3. You'll actually want to visit the bathroom: With private dressing rooms and comfortable nursing areas, it's no wonder SFO is touting these as “5-star restrooms.”
