The Treasure Coast International Airport (KFPR) has issued a ”Request For Proposals” (RFP) for the lease and operation of a new 28,500-square-foot hangar and related facilities for expanded development opportunities.
The state-of-the art aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) hangar, recently completed, is one of the few new facilities available in the marketplace.
The hangar has a peak height of 59.4 feet, a 44-foot-high by 170-foot-wide hangar door, a 190-foot by 150-foot apron, and is protected by a wet automatic fire sprinkler/high expansion foam system that has the capacity to serve future adjacent hangars.
The hangar will serve as the catalyst and anchor for further private development of the airport’s east side, which includes three adjacent two-acre parcels ready for immediate hangar development and several parcels that will complete an MRO campus.
The airport’s west side is currently being planned as a corporate hangar campus to be developed with a private sector partner or partners.
The RFP reflects current planning initiatives by encouraging proposals that include development concepts beyond the hangar itself.
