After nearly three years abandoned, Mexico City’s canceled new airport is starting to show some decay. According to recently published photos, weeds are sprouting from the ground, and water is taking the place of what was supposed to become the flight terminal and control tower.
As Reuters reported, the abandoned airport is now part of a project to conserve 12,200 hectares of marsh on what was once the Texcoco Lake. Half of that area will be used to build a public space. It is set to open by 2024, right around the time the New Airport would have begun operations.
