DAUM Commercial and Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport Announce Groundbreaking of Gateway Executive Airpark
DAUM Commercial Real Estate Services has announced the groundbreaking of Gateway Executive Airpark, a three-hangar development totaling more than 185,500 square feet at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport in Mesa, Arizona.
Gateway Executive Airpark, which is now leasing and will be available for occupancy by Q4, is a state-of-the-art, full-service hangar facility including multi-tenant and freestanding hangars.
The hangars are constructed with steel frame infrastructure, metal exterior walls and metal roof. The steel frame infrastructure provides clear span bays necessary for aircraft maneuvering. Additionally, Gateway Executive Airpark features office space built to suit tenant’s requirements, LED overhead lighting with on/off motion sensors in hangars, sealed concrete floors and hangar doors 28’ high with widths spanning 90’ to 110’.
Developed to accommodate the increasing demand trend for the larger long range business jets, the dimensions of the hangar bays and hangar doors at Gateway Executive Airpark will accommodate larger jets, such as the new Gulfstream 700, multiple aircraft, and other aviation uses such as maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) operations.
Steve McKendry, principal and executive vice president at DAUM Commercial, said: “Private jet services for both business and leisure travel have proven to be much more resilient than commercial airlines throughout the pandemic,” says Steve McKendry. “A year on, many corporations still do not want their executive teams flying commercial airlines, and individuals are placing safety first and considering private flights when they never would have previously. Business aviation has improved 30 per cent from this time a year ago, about 8 per cent less than pre-pandemic 2019. The improvement is due to not only safety issues but is reflective of economies opening up and travel restrictions being removed. In contrast, scheduled airline activity is down about 18 per cent from this time in 2020 and 44 per cent from 2019.”
Situated adjacent to Textron’s Citation Service Center and Embraer Executive Jet Service Center, Gateway Executive Airpark is located at 5559 S. Sossaman Road in Mesa, Arizona.
