Business aviation real estate specialist the Business Aviation Group (BA Group) has been retained by Modern Aviation to bring additional hangar space to its current FBO campus located at King County International airport - Boeing Field in Seattle, Washington.
The first phase of this development project includes a new ramp and construction of a 40,000 sq ft climate-controlled hangar. The hangar has just been completed and turned over to the Modern Aviation team and is ready for immediate lease up.
The second phase of the development project is under way adjacent to this hangar and has a targeted completion date of May 2021. This phase will bring an additional 24,000 sq ft of hangar space and 7,000 sq ft of office space to the FBO campus. Once complete, these additional hangars will bring the total capacity up to 100,000 sq ft across four hangars.
“The BA Group brings years of experience with a team dedicated to ensuring general and business aircraft operators have access to well-planned and well-constructed facilities around the United States,” says Barry Sherman, partner/owner, Business Aviation Group. “We have been thrilled by the opportunity to work with Modern Aviation and its team on this project. Its commitment to excellence has allowed us to assist it in effectively doubling its footprint here at BFI.”
Serving small commercial passenger airlines, cargo carriers and private aircraft owners, King County International airport-Boeing Field is one of the US' busiest primary non-hub airports.
“Modern Aviation and BA Group share a similar vision of bringing the highest quality of services and facilities to the general aviation community,” adds Mark J. Carmen, CEO and president of Modern Aviation. “This project aligns perfectly with our strategy and is an excellent addition to our portfolio of state-of-the-art facilities across the country.”
This is the second project that BA Group and Modern Aviation have undertaken together. They are currently collaborating to offer 50,000 sq ft of premium FBO, office and hangar space at Centennial airport in Denver, Colorado.
