Western LLC Announces Plans For A New Corporate Aviation Campus Development At RDU

Western LLC, a commercial real estate development and design-build firm specializing in the aviation industry, has announced plans to develop a new Corporate Aviation Campus on 48-acres at Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU). The development agreement between Western and RDU was approved during the Airport Authority Board meeting held on February 21, 2019.

According to Brad Henderson, CEO of Western LLC, the firm has partnered with a number of aviation facilities in the past and is looking forward to working with executives at the airport and the Research Triangle region.  The tentative plans call for approximately 21 hangars ranging in size from 12,100 sf to over 30,000 sf with the option for attached offices on several units. The 48-acre site is adjacent to the SAS Institute hangar at the northeast portion of the airport.

“The campus has already received interest from potential corporate clients and we feel this could make a big economic impact in the area,” said Henderson.  Western plans to develop, design, construct and lease-back the hangars to potential clients.  The firm would also be responsible for the facilities’ maintenance.

“RDU is excited to engage Western LLC in its first public-private partnership to build a new, state-of-the-art corporate aviation campus,” said Michael Landguth, president and CEO of the Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority. “The new campus will support local customers with existing general aviation needs and also help recruit corporate jetsetters whose companies may be considering entry into the Triangle.”
