Los Angeles World Airports plans to name the new central hall of the LAX international terminal the “Antonio R. Villaraigosa Pavilion,” it was recently reported. Airport commissioners voted Tuesday on the honor, the Daily News
reported on its website. The $1.7 billion expansion of the terminal, named after former mayor Tom Bradley, is about $200 million over budget, according to the Daily News.
Airport officials defend the overruns, noting that the curved, wave-like roofs of the new structure were an ambitious and difficult project.
