Spaceport America has announced the launch of a master development plan opening up additional build-to-suit parcels within the North and East Campuses at the 18,000-acre facility in Southern New Mexico.
Spaceport America's CEO and go-to-market team have traveled to Houston today to roll-out the "Reach for the Stars at Spaceport America" campaign featuring the new master development plan targeted to commercial space and space-related technology companies.
With one of the largest areas of protected airspace on Earth, stable weather conditions, state-of-the-art infrastructure, and 18,000 acres of sparsely populated high-elevation desert land, Spaceport America is well positioned to support space launches, space launch testing, and UAV testing as well as satellite ground stations and other space-related technologies.
Roughly 250 acres surrounding the iconic Gateway to Space terminal and the site's 12,000-ft by 200-ft spaceway will be divided into parcels of between four and 30 acres, with leasing costs varying according to the size of the property and the tenants' requirements.
Another 100 acres within the vertical launch campus, ranging from 1.5- to 22-acre parcels, are also now ready for build-to-suit tenancy.
"Spaceport America welcomes the brave and pioneering new breed of aerospace entrepreneur," said Spaceport America CEO Christine Anderson.
"We are opening up several hundred acres in both our horizontal and vertical launch areas for build-to-suit tenancy and have also expanded our infrastructure to support ad-hoc flight test campaigns."
In addition to offering up new parcels of land within both the horizontal and vertical launch campuses with affordable leasing and build-to-suit options, Spaceport America is welcoming qualified new prospective tenants with a First Flight is Free program.
Spaceport America will be exhibiting from November 17-19 at SpaceCom, the Space Commerce Conference and Exposition, in Houston, Texas at the George R. Brown Convention Center.
Stop by booth 514 to experience the "Reach for the Stars at Spaceport America" campaign and to learn more about the new master development plan.
