There is an electronic map to greet passengers as they enter the councourse. American, Frontier and Cape Air are housed there along with several stores and restaurants. There is also glass art displays throughout the concourse.
The flights were moved to Lambert Airport's other concourses during the repairs. The concourse was already undergoing renovations when the tornado hit, so a lot of the new look was already slated for the concourse. The cost of the renovations was $15-million; $10-million of which came from tornado damage.
