On Thursday, March 1st, 2018, the San Fernando Valley Business Journal proudly announced the 2018 Commercial Real Estate Awards, where the biggest, best, and most notable projects of 2017 were recognized. The three acre, $7.5 million dollar development at Van Nuys Airport includes more than 55,000 square feet of new aircraft ramp and staging areas; 38,000 square feet of exclusive corporate hangar space for business aircraft, turboprops, and executive jets; 8,5000 square feet of shop, office, and terminal space with conference, kitchen, and lounge facilities; and a private, gated parking lot with spaces for more than 45 vehicles. The interior office, support, and shop areas also feature considerable natural light, LED lighting, and a solar photovoltaic system that will utilize the roof space with solar panels and provide for covered carport parking. This is the first solar panel project at the Van Nuys Airport. All of these sustainable features save energy, reduce costs, and adhere to California Green Building Standards and this building is a model for other buildings and projects at the airport.
