Scottsdale Airport $27 million redevelopment breaks ground July 12

July 6, 2017

Scottsdale Airport will host a ceremonial groundbreaking to officially mark the launch of the terminal area redevelopment project. It takes place at 8:00 a.m. Wednesday, July 12, at the terminal building, 15000 N. Airport Drive. This project will upgrade and enhance this area with some of the largest hangars at the airport and maximize use of the parcel’s building footprint and offer a new “place” in Scottsdale. A place where residents and visitors can experience the airport for more than just travel.

Located on the west side of the airport, the new Aviation Business Center will include a public plaza, restaurant, event venue, airport administration offices, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection office, as well as other top offices and two executive hangars. Other roadway, parking and aesthetic improvements are also included in the redevelopment. All businesses in and around the airport will remain open during construction. The airport administration offices will relocate to the Operations Center, located just north of this site at 15255 N. Airport Drive, during the interim.

The most recent update to the Airport’s Master Plan, completed by Coffman Associates, cited the need for more executive hangar space to accommodate growth in aviation activity. This was the point of departure for this project. Douglas Davies, partner of D.M.D Real Estate Group, partnered with the city to validate the need for more hangar space.

“Our market analysis showed the timing was ideal for this type of project,” says Douglas Davies.

Mead & Hunt is the engineering firm. JE Dunn is under contract to construct the building.

The design supports sustainability and the city will pursue Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.
