PROJECTS Airport Concession Proposals

Food Court 2012 Proposal, Midway International Airport

The ‚ÄúDine in the Park‚ÄĚ food court proposal offers a visionary culinary destination within Chicago‚Äôs Midway Airport. This integrated concept provides travelers with diverse food and beverage offerings, set in a park environment, reflecting Chicago‚Äôs rich tapestry of ethnic neighborhoods united with each other through the city’s extensive system of parks. Since Chicago’s incorporation in 1837, the city seal has borne the phrase Urbs in Horto translating from Latin as “City in a Garden.” Many of Chicago’s “Emerald Necklace” of parks were designed by such notable landscape architects as Frederick Law Olmstead and William Le Baron Jenney.

 

Walls of live plantings, accented by video displays featuring current and historic views of Chicago’s parks, are strategically placed throughout the concept. Further enhancing this parklike atmosphere are trees, flower boxes, streetlights with hanging planting baskets, a cascading waterfall, and a koi pond. A hydroponic herbarium will feature herbs and vegetables that will be grown and harvested for use in the surrounding restaurants. Not only aesthetically pleasing, these plants and indoor water features have been shown to improve indoor air quality. Finally, to stimulate the mind, one end of the food court will showcase a museum-quality informational wall telling travelers the stories of Chicago’s most beloved parks.

River Bend Grill, Little Rock National Airport

HMS Host’s joint venture with local Platinum Business Management is part of a multi-million redevelopment of food service venues at the airport. Located outside the pre-security area, the dining area permits diners to watch aircraft as they take off and land. Natural stone materials found locally combine with design elements that reflect the theme of the bend in the Arkansas River in Little Rock.
