Development Site


The Airport has over 500 acres of land zoned for industrial use served with utility infrastructure that has been designated as surplus to aeronautical need and is available for purchase or lease. The land also lies within the S3R3 Solutions Public Development Authority, an Opportunity Zone and Foreign-Trade Zone No. 224. View airport area map.

The area’s location provides a unique advantage for businesses. It is the largest industrial development area in western Spokane County, providing preferred accessibility to seaports in Seattle and Portland, yet only minutes from downtown Spokane, offering convenient commute times for employees and suppliers alike. The area is also situated near the Spokane Transit Authority’s West Plains Transit Center, as well as a short drive away from both commercial passenger service and corporate aviation facilities at the Airport. Additionally, it is located in close proximity to Interstate 90 and Spokane International Airport, giving businesses favorable multi-modal truck, rail and air transportation options.

The Airport Area has also been the recipient of significant investment from the local, state and federal level. In 2017, the Airport, the City of Spokane and Spokane County created the S3R3 Solutions Public Development Authority (PDA) to provide a physical infrastructure and financing model mechanism where 75% of local government tax revenue generated within the PDA’s boundaries stays within the PDA for investment in infrastructure development and other related initiatives.

The Airport successfully advocated to the Washington State Legislature to appropriate $2 million to extend rail track from the existing Geiger Spur onto Airport property, and the Washington State Department of Transportation spent $24 million to reconstruct the two major Interstate 90 interchanges providing direct access to the Airport Area. In addition, the U.S. Department of Transportation awarded a $14.3 million BUILD grant to Spokane County to improve the infrastructure of Geiger Boulevard, which serves Amazon’s 2.6MM square foot Fulfilment Center, and the Airport applied for and won an $11.3 million BUILD grant to assist in the development of the Airport’s Rail-Truck Transload Facility, completed in Fall 2022, approximately two miles west of the passenger terminal. And in 2023, Spokane County is intending to realign Craig Road, a North/South arterial and remove two 90-degree turns to further facilitate the efficient movement of truck traffic to and from the Transload Facility and the Airport’s substantial land holdings.
