MESA, Arizona – Construction has begun on nearly 400,000 square feet of hangar and office space at Falcon Field Airport (KFFZ).
The development is inside an Opportunity Zone, specially designated by the U.S. Treasury Department to stimulate investment.
“This is just the type of investment Falcon Field and Mesa have needed to grow the aviation sector of our economy,” District 5 City Councilmember David Luna said.
With hangar occupancy nearing 100% percent, Airport Director Corinne Nystrom welcomes the build of “much-needed facilities.” The 23-acre development will offer significant opportunities for new and expanding aviation businesses, according to airport officials.
The hangars will feature S-1 Occupancy Type, with proposed uses including: FBO operations, corporate aircraft storage, helicopter operations, aircraft maintenance, light aviation manufacturing and assembly, and aerospace industry uses, among others.
The $60 million project is managed by GCON, a regional construction management company leading the major addition to Falcon Field Airport.
