The Indianapolis Airport has 18 parcels of land that add up to about 1,200 acres available for lease or sale on the airport property.

Airport spokesman Carlo Bertolini says officials at the Indianapolis Airport are close to a sale on 22 acres of property.

“We’re not quite ready for a specific announcement yet but we think we are moving close to an arrangement for a party to come in and make use of that land,” he says.

He declined to give  details, but says the party interested in the land at Ronald Reagan Parkway and Stafford Road is not associated with the aviation industry.

149-acres off of West Washington Street are also still available. The city of Indianapolis was interested in the property for a new criminal justice complex, but they have since chosen a different property.

Bertolini says the airport’s “crowned jewel”, the old airport terminal property, is still available as well. The 288 acres feature direct access to the airport’s runways and the original parking garage.

Recent land use successes include land originally deemed unusable beneath the runways. It now features the largest solar field on a North American airport property.
