Atlanta airport seeks developers for 5 plots around airport

By The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta's international airport is again seeking developers for five parcels of land around the airport.

Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport plans to lease the land, which totals more than 150 acres (60 hectares). Possible uses include retail and entertainment space, a cargo or logistics facility, aviation office space and a restaurant or travel center, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Wednesday.

The airport sought developers for the properties in 2019, but cancelled that effort in June 2020 because of uncertainty created by the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the newspaper.

Proposals under the new bidding process are due by Dec. 20.

Airport managers have long tried to increase development around the airport but have faced challenges. The area is currently dominated by hotels, industrial properties and logistics facilities, empty lots and off-airport parking sites.

The airport is in the process of scaling back a long-delayed development project planned near the domestic terminal, the newspaper reported.
