WingSpan Aviation Center Approved For Expansion At Chandler, Arizona, Municipal Airport

A 50-year ground lease for WingSpan Aviation Center, which will enable the company to expand its business concept, has been approved in Chandler, Arizona.

WingSpan focuses on Commercial Property Development, Financial Products and Services serving the Aviation Market. The first phase of the project will include an 80,000 square foot hangar-office complex. Each hangar building may be equipped with offices, meeting space and/or an Aviation Business Lobby. Development is scheduled to begin in Fall 2015.

Future phases include additional hangar/office space and build-to-suit offices, pending taxi access to the runway. The property is expected to be built out in about five years with 250,000 square feet of space.

Jim Moore, CEO of WingSpan Business Investments, a city resident and longtime pilot, said, “We’ve researched and designed every detail of what businesses need in order to maximize productivity. We are blending structured steel buildings with contemporary architecture, technology and modern amenities, resulting in a highly sought after product.” “We’ve struck just the right product by offering both a standardized building as well as remaining flexible to accommodate unique building requests as they surface,” said Moore.

Located in the technology hub of Chandler, Arizona, its Municipal Airport is situated in the southeastern portion of Metropolitan Phoenix. Its airport anchors the city’s Airpark area, one of Chandler’s largest employment corridors, second only to the nearby Price Corridor, city officials said. The Airpark is dubbed Chandler’s ‘final frontier’ for growth as the city moves towards build-out, and fewer large tracts of commercial land are available.

"This is an excellent project with direct freeway access and limited airspace delays that creates a really attractive opportunity for those who cater to the aviation business sector,”said Mayor Jay Tibshraeny. “WingSpan Aviation Center will be a unique addition to the development activity we’re seeing throughout the Airpark Area."
