Land Near Pittsburgh International Airport To Be Developed

Expect to see more development, but no additional delays, out by the Pittsburgh International Airport, as ground will soon be broken on new office space across the Airport Expressway.

The building will take up 16.2 acres and will be up to 100,000 square feet of flex office space. It will be built next to the Thermo Fisher facility, on Industry Drive.

“The airport operations will not be effected by this at all. This is far enough away, if you will, from the midfield terminal to not affect that. This will be an independent construction project that will run on a normal schedule,” said County Executive Rich Fitzgerald.

The site is being developed through the Oxford Development Company, and the cost and projected completion date have not been revealed.

The list of tenants has not yet been released, but Fitzgerald is not worried about getting the spaces filled.

“All sectors of our economy continue to grow, and the availability and desirability to be near the airport to be in that corridor is something that the market is demanding and I think that’s going to continue,” said Fitzgerald.

According to Fitzgerald the Airport Authority still has about 7,000 acres that they will be able to develop.
