Amazon to expand facilities at Tulsa International Airport
Amazon has announced plans to build a 270,000 square foot sortation facility on property adjacent to Tulsa International Airport.
Located in North Mingo Avenue just off of Highway 169, the facility is expected to be completed in late 2021, making it Amazon’s third large investment in Tulsa, following the 2.5 million square foot fulfilment centre that opened in August 2020.
“Property development is one of the airport’s key initiatives, and we are thrilled to have Amazon continue their investment here in Tulsa and on airport land,” said Alexis Higgins, CEO of Tulsa Airports Improvement Trust.
“Having access to land near the airport as a transportation hub is an incredibly powerful tool for companies as they expand, and we look forward to continuing to support industrial development.”
Amazon’s new 40-acre facility is the latest addition to the airport industrial complex, which includes 4,900 acres of the city’s largest aviation, logistics, and transportation providers.
With nearly seven hundred acres of property available for industrial development, the airport is strategically developing parcels based on developers’ needs and intended use.
Two hundred acres located in the airport’s North Development Area have direct access to the airfield, suitable for hangar development, maintenance, repair, and overhaul work, or a variety of other uses.
Current tenants including Spirit AeroSystems, American Airlines Tech Ops-Tulsa, the Oklahoma Air National Guard, Lufthansa Technik, L3Harris, FedEx, and BizJet International.
