Newark International Airport
International Air Cargo center at Newark International Airport
The International Air Cargo Center was built on the site of the original passenger terminal at EWR. Prior to this development, the airport had received little or no revenue from this portion of its property for many years. Neither the airport nor any of the airlines were willing or able to redevelop the site. By allowing a private company to invest, the airport benefited from new, modern, revenue-producing facilities that significantly increased the airport’s capacity for cargo operations. Airlines, desiring to increase operations but unwilling to make the required capital investment, were nevertheless able to meet their operational needs, thus strengthening their ties with the airport for the future.
The site is adjacent to the Runway Protection Zone requiring site planning to comply with applicable regulations of both the FAA and The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ). The project was constructed in phases on 22.7 acres of land leased from the PANYNJ.
In 1996, the Principals of Mallory & Evans began construction of Phase I of the Facility that includes approximately 154,000 square feet of cargo warehouse space, 37,000 square feet of office space, 115,000 square space of GSE area, 54,300 square feet of aircraft apron and related equipment and furnishings.
Construction of Phase II of the Facility was completed in March of 1999. Phase II of the Facility consisted of the construction of an additional 58,000 square feet of cargo warehouse space, 22,000 square feet of office space and 40,500 square feet of GSE area and related equipment and furnishings.
The first building houses SAS, Cargo Service Centers, EVA and Virgin Atlantic and the second houses Worldwide Flight Services, Delta, Northwest and American. These buildings were the first facilities developed by a private sector party at any PANYNJ airport. The complex also houses the newly developed Newark International Airport Medical Facility
Both phases were completed in twenty-eight months and were delivered on time and within budget. Our asset management staff provided the necessary oversight of the facilities and chaired the tenant liaison committee to ensure the tenants and the facilities were good airport neighbors and abided by the Airport’s Rules and Regulations.
