McKinney National Airport will break ground this week on a new 17,000-sq-ft FBO terminal. The project at the Dallas-area, airport-owned McKinney Air Center—the lone service provider at the dedicated business aviation gateway—will include two conference rooms, pilot lounge, flight-planning room, training room, media room, refreshment center, on-site car rental, outdoor lounge, and porte-cochere entryway.

The project, a public-private partnership with aviation real estate developer Western LLC, will also feature built-to-suit office space for tenants. Completion is scheduled for June 2019. 

This comes on the heels of last month’s start of construction on a new 39,900-sq-ft transient hangar at the airport, also in conjunction with Western, large enough to shelter a quartet of Gulfstream G550s. It will have four office suites, eight garage spaces for cars, a lounge, locker room, and Wi-Fi when it is completed by the end of the year. According to the airport, the price tag for both projects is $16 million.
