Private Developer Announces Construction of 111,000 Square Foot Hangar Facility in PDX

Portland, Oregon - Gregg Mecham, a Northwest private developer, announced the groundbreaking for Mecham Air Center (MAC) at Portland Intl Airport (PDX). MAC is a 111,000 sq ft facility with 96,000 sq ft of executive corpoPDXrate hangars and 15,000 sq ft of general and executive office space located directly on the airports north runway. The complex is just seconds from the main PDX terminal and adjoins an FBO. MAC is now preleasing with an expected completion date in Q4 2017. Centrex Construction, Inc is the general contractor.

Mr. Mecham stated that he felt PDX was an ideal location for this much needed corporate hangar space. "We see a need for dedicated executive hangars for companies with one or more aircraft. They may be corporations, fractional aircraft management companies, or MRO's. There is just no similar space available on the west coast at an international airport, whether in the Seattle or California markets, and PDX is right in the middle, making it a short hop north or south. And Oregon is a tax free state - a huge tax advantage."
