Sea-Tac Airport is committed to working in close partnership with the airport communities and the private sector to redevelop vacant off-airfield property in an efficient and timely manner. About 318 acres of off-airfield property, located in SeaTac, Burien and Des Moines, are primed for redevelopment that promotes both regional economic vitality and job creation in Southwest King County.
Des Moines Creek Business Park
Panattoni Development’s Des Moines Creek Business Park, an 87-acre site on Port property in the City of Des Moines, is located one block east of International Boulevard/Pacific Highway South (SR99) and north of South 216th Street in Des Moines. The estimated $100-125 million business park project will include the Federal Aviation Administration’s regional headquarters as one of its major tenants and is being built in three phases. At full completion, the business park will contain office, manufacturing, warehouse and distribution buildings to accommodate tenants including freight, aviation manufacturers and air cargo companies. They will benefit from the close proximity to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Since 2005, the Port and the City of Des Moines have worked in tandem to prepare the property for redevelopment.
Northeast Redevelopment Area (NERA)
The Port’s and Burien’s goal, owing to NERA’s proximity to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, is to transition this mixture of vacant, residential, public and small commercial land uses to uses compatible with Sea-Tac International Airport. To help encourage NERA’s development, the Port and City of Burien have cooperated in completing a significant amount of pre-development planning work. This joint work includes an interlocal agreement on land use and cooperation in construction of the first phase of a regional stormwater system that will fully service the NERA.
