Airport District


Commercial & Industrial Redevelopment

Birmingham's Airport, busiest in the state, has more than 400 acres of developable land with an Opportunity Zone. Stantec Consulting Services is currently completing a extensive redevelopment plan with great potential for commercial and industrial investment opportunities.

With over 3.0 million passengers annually, Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport (BHM) is Alabama’s busiest commercial service airport.  In addition to the 106 daily flights to 21 airports in 18 cities. BHM serves all-cargo operators, with more than 22,000 tons of cargo passes through BHM each year. Additionally,  40% of aircraft operations are categorized as general aviation (GA). BHM also has a significant military presence. The 47-acre Alabama Air National Guard (ANG) base is home to the Air Force 117th Air Refueling Wing and the Army National Guard (ARNG) 109th Air Evac Hospital. Each day, over 250 military and civilian employees report to work at the base. This number swells to over 1,200 during training weekends and when activated.

The Airport Authority in partnership with City of Birmingham is designing an extensive redevelopment plan for +765 acres of land around the Airport. More than 400 acres fall within an opportunity zone. Given the project’s size and strategic location, we foresee great potential for commercial and industrial development. Stantec is currently completing an in-depth assessment of market, economic, physical and environmental study to identify best land use.
