Almost as large is the effort to finish building out A,B,C, which will result in 39 new gates, and all three concourses being fully "telescoped" out. As part of that, there are also additional international gate nodes (which connect gates on A to customs and immigration over the bridge). There is also the airport city development around the airport itself.
Not as important, but still nice for travelers will be the new Plaza Premium lounge (first in the US) and a new Centurian lounge, as well as an overhaul of retail space on C concourse.
It's going to be a construction zone for a few years, but what the city is getting for the money should be impressive.
