FedEx wants more space at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport
FedEx already takes up a large amount of space at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport. Now, it wants a bigger piece of land.
On Monday, the airport announced FedEx wants to lease a little more than 1 million square feet to the south of its current warehouse.
That's where the delivery company wants to build a 98,000-square-foot operations center. The building would house administrative offices and allow for more parking of its jets and FedEx trucks.
The value of the investment is about $57 million. FedEx declined to comment on when construction could start or finish.
This is the third major project announced for the airport in less than a month.
Alaska Cargo and Cold Storage wants to build a 700,000-square-foot air cargo warehouse next to the FedEx site. It would have a place to house perishable items waiting for other flights.
6AXL Aviation Alaska wants to build a 1.5 million-square-foot cargo warehouse on the west side of the airport — the first for that section of the complex.
The projected investment of both of those buildings is a combined $370 million. They are also expected to create more than 1,000 jobs.
Work on those projects could get underway by the end of the year and take two years to complete.
