Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey today introduced SkyBridge Arizona – a joint U.S.-Mexico Customs clearance service based at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport in Mesa – at the 2018 Legislative Forecast Luncheon hosted by the Arizona Chamber of Commerce at The Sheraton Grand in Phoenix.
SkyBridge Arizona, the new $230 million, 360-acre commercial development at bustling Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport in the Southeast Valley, promises tens of thousands of new jobs, increased revenues for area cities, and marks a new era in how companies send and receive goods across our southern border.
At its core, SkyBridge includes a first-of-its-kind joint United States-Mexico Customs inspections facility, which dramatically streamlines the Customs process with Mexico. Surrounding this facility are more than 2 million square feet of warehouse space, nearly 1 million square feet of office space, 900,000 square feet of light industrial and flex space, more than 800,000 square feet of air cargo operations, a 242-bed hotel and 100,000 square feet of retail and restaurants, and more.
