The West Terminal Expansion project epitomizes the growth and rising popularity of Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport during the past 15 years as a redevelopment civilian-use airport. It is a prime model for the successful collaboration effort that drove the redevelopment of a former military base, Williams AFB, which closed in 1993. The Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Authority’s planning and forward thinking are credited for guiding the project from a shuttered facility to the Southeast Valley’s top destination for a burgeoning aerospace industry and higher education. The area is also home to the ASU Polytechnic Campus, EV Institute of Technology and Chandler-Gilbert CC. The project includes a new, 25,000 SF building, a remodel of the existing passenger terminal, and expanded arrival/departure roadway and convenient parking. A unique amenity is the post-security courtyard, where passengers can linger in shaded landscaped gardens connected to the new building’s food and beverage concession and patio seating.
