August 2022: On Your Radar features a remodel of a large-scale international airport expansion, a youth sports complex, and more!
CHILDREN’S REHABILITATION HOSPITAL / Project ID 2022-1F07
Construction on this $60 million hospital is slated to begin by the end of 2023, contingent on funding. This will be a two-story, 24-bed facility. Plans include outpatient treatment areas, indoor and outdoor recreation space, and a classroom for a certified teacher to help children with their studies.
LARGE SCALE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT EXPANSION / Project ID 2022-1EEE
The airport proposes to expand its cargo ramp space by more than sixty percent, which calls for constructing more than 400,000 square feet of pavement to support anticipated growth in shipping needs from companies like Amazon, and evolving technology that will call for package delivery by drones. Additionally, a 160,000-square-foot speculative building is planned at the site. This expansion is estimated to cost $14 million, and construction is expected to begin in July of 2023.
YOUTH SPORTS COMPLEX /Project ID 2022-1F12
The entire $5 million sports complex is planned to have 4 baseball/ softball fields with batting cages, a park and playground, a possible splash pad, a walking trail around the property with fitness stops, a concession stand and rentable pavilion, and space for rocket football. The project will be constructed in multiple phases. The special use permit was approved earlier in August so the next step will be developing and having the site plan approved.
REHABILITATION OF A LARGE-SCALE APARTMENT COMPLEX / Project ID 2022-1F82
The total development cost is approximately $45 million. All 270 units will be rehabilitated with improvements such as air conditioning replacement, hot water storage and furnaces in family units, kitchen floor replacements, upgrades to cabinetry, countertops, faucets, and kitchen appliances, as well as modernizing elevator equipment and more. Initial closing and disbursement are planned for September with completion planned for December 2023.
LARGE-SCALE MIXED-USE DEVELOPMENT / Project ID 2022-2053
The total investment in this six-story, 126,271 square foot building is $22 million. Bidding is planned for this fall with construction planned for spring 2023.
LARGE SCALE CANCER RESEARCH AND EDUCATION FACILITY / Project ID 2022-2124
The location will be decided on in the next three to four months and the $100 million facility will be ready to open within three to four years.
PEDIATRIC BEHAVIORAL HEALTH HOSPITAL / Project ID 2022-209E
They are still in the very early stages of planning on this $62 million project, and they have some fundraising that will need to happen before they can choose a design firm. This 88-bed facility is slated to open in 2024.
LARGE SCALE MANUFACTURING, ENGINEERING, AND RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT CAMPUS / Project ID 2022-2193
In total, the new $86 million campus will span 788,000 square feet. Groundbreaking is scheduled for this fall with completion by 2024, but the project still needs approval from the city.
