Aviation Development

DuPage Airport offers 1,200 acres solely dedicated to airfield activities, offering ample opportunities for expansion and clear runway approaches. Our 2,800 acre property also includes Prairie Landing Golf Club; a championship golf course rated 4.5 out of 5 stars by Golf Digest and a high-technology business park.

Development or Leasing Options: With the option to negotiate a land lease or build-to-suit deal, companies can select the plan that makes the most sense for your business. DuPage Airport Authority property is tax-exempt. Privately-owned and leased buildings on airport property are assessed a leasehold tax calculated using a present value formula. The Authority will work with a lessee to minimize tax implications by creating a balance among lease term, base rate and maintenance fees.
