SkyBridge Arizona and leading general contractor Graycor Construction Company joined today with local dignitaries, Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport, business leaders and project leasing firm CBRE to break ground on the first two buildings at SkyBridge Arizona. The major master-planned development will serve as the nation’s first-ever joint U.S. and Mexico inland port and customs processing hub. SkyBridge has selected Graycor for the design-build of the first two buildings.
“This is the first of many great days associated with SkyBridge Arizona,” said Brian O’Neill, executive director, Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport. “The first groundbreaking is always important but we’re going to feel the same way about the second, the third, the fourth, because as we look at our future, it’s directly tied to the success of SkyBridge Arizona.”
Located on 360 acres southwest of the runway at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport in Mesa, Arizona, SkyBridge will use Unified Cargo Processing (UCP) to complete on-site cargo inspection and processing so that shipments between the U.S. and Mexico can be expedited directly to their destinations in Mexico.
