Gerald R. Ford International Airport Property

The Gerald R. Ford International Airport property features 177 acres of undeveloped, industrial zoned land owned by Kent County. A prime location near a railway, a major interstate, and an international airport, it is ready for development. With frontage on 52nd Street, Kraft Ave. and 60th Street, this property can be split to meet the needs of any potential development. This unique site could have through-fence access to the airport taxiway and runway infrastructure (dependent on use and subject to approval). The M-6 highway is approximately a mile away, providing easy access to I-96 (approximately 4 miles) and US-131 (approximately 7 miles). Additionally, the site is adjacent to a MDOT/CSX rail spur corridor and is approximately 53 miles from the Port of Muskegon, that largest deep-water port in Michigan. This property may be eligible for a Foreign Trade Zone designation which can provide significant tariff, tax and logistics related benefits.
