KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Edgemoor Infrastructure & Real Estate LLC released their first rendering for a single-terminal design at Kansas City International Airport on Thursday.

City council members approved Edgemoor on Sept. 21 in a 10-2 vote.

Following the vote, Kansas City Mayor Sly James said it was time to move forward to Nov. 7, when a vote will be held. 

A two-story fountain anchors the sleek, modern, initial design concepts unveiled on Thursday.

Skidmore, Ownings & Merrill, an internationally-known architecture firm, has incorporated elements that reflect Kansas City’s cultural heritage into the preliminary design. The two-story fountain in the center of the terminal would include technology to project messages and colors on the cascading water to welcome travelers.

Convenience for travelers is a major element of the design as well. The design features close-in parking, and a two-level curbside pick-up and drop-off area which will be faster and more convenient for travelers. Also, waiting areas at each gate will have room for the increased number of passengers on today’s planes.

Financing for the new terminal will be paid back from airport revenues, and the city will continue to own and operate the airport. 

Edgemoor will begin to build its design team in the next 90-120 days.

Geoffrey Stricker of Edgemoor said the firm is committed to what they proposed. 

"It's in our DNA to do the types of things that we said we'd do," he said. "We as a company have been around for over 100 years because we do the right thing with our clients number one. Number two, it's going to be contractually part of the MOU and the long term agreement so our feet will be held to the fire  - to make sure we do it with that we're going to do."
