Few Pieces Left at Pease
- July 20, 2011
As the reuse of the former Pease Air Force Base enters its 20th year, the task of finding tenants for the approximately 3,000-acre site in Portsmouth, N.H., is almost complete.
Only 62 acres of developable land remains at the business park at Pease International Tradeport, and only 125 acres is available at Portsmouth International Airport, reports Seacoast Online.
“We’re about 90 percent developed,” Dave Mullen, executive director of the Pease Development Authority, told the publication.
The authority currently is focused on identifying a user for the largest developable parcel in the business park, an 11-acre tract that houses an aging Air Force warehouse. Absent a grant from the Economic Development Administration to tear it down or an investment from a future tenant, the warehouse will remain for the time being.
