FILE ART - San Jose Norm Mineta International Airport
Google is getting its Terminal G at the Mineta San Jose International Airport, according to reports.
The San Jose City Council voted earlier this week to "grant delegated authority" to airport staff to finalize a 50-year lease for Signature Flight Support, which also serves as Google's executive aircraft service, according to the city. The $82-million private development on 29 acres will be built on the west side of the airport with construction starting this fall.
The development is a partnership with Blue City Holdings, San Jose, a corporation representing the personal aircraft of Google's principals.
“Signature is extraordinarily proud to expand our business to Mineta San Jose International Airport and create a positive economic impact in the Silicon Valley region,” Maria Sastre, President and Chief Operating Officer, Signature Flight Support said in a statement. “We’ve planned an accelerated timetable and are eager to get construction underway as quickly as possible."
There will be 270,000 square feet of certified LEED Gold facilities when the project is complete. The facility will also bring 36 airport jobs and Signature will be relocating to San Jose.
Google currently parks
its jets at Moffett Federal Airfield. The new executive terminal, hangers and ramps will bring in $2.6 million a year in annual rent for the San Jose airport.
