Sebring Regional Airport

Building Site & Development Information

Property

Buildings can be constructed to meet tenant specifications. There are no impact fees for new construction, and the Airport Authority acts as an independent governing board, greatly expediting the process of obtaining all necessary permits and zoning. The Commerce Park contains a total of 1,770 acres, 1,200 of which are still available for new tenants. Due to Federal Aviation Administration restrictions, land cannot be sold; however, long term leases are available at extremely low rates. Parcels are available in sizes ranging from one acre to as much as 600 acres. The property tax rate in the park is $18.4510 per $1000 of value. The Executive Director serves as your single point of contact for all negotiations:

Financing

Funds are available for construction, purchase of machinery and equipment, and working capital to qualified applicants through the area's thirteen commercial bank offices with combined deposits of $555 million. Federal and State grants may also be available, especially to aviation-related tenants. The Airport Authority will assist you in identifying and applying for these funds. The Board of County Commissioners, in support of economic development, has established the Highlands County Industrial Development Authority to provide industrial revenue bond financing to qualifying applicants. Information on this and other financing programs can be obtained from:

US Highway 98 is the major East-West route. It lies one mile south of the park. US Highway 27 is the major North-South corridor, 4.5 miles West of the airport. These roads, together with the "Florida Cracker Trail" and other state highways, link the area to the Florida Turnpike and three interstate highways: I-4, I-95 and I-75. Highlands County is well served by interstate and intrastate motor freight lines through all major carriers, and overnight delivery service is available

Rail:
CSX Transportation maintains an industrial rail spur that runs directly to the Commerce Park. Amtrak provides passenger service with scheduled stops in Sebring.

Air:
The Sebring Regional Airport & Commerce Park serves corporate and leisure aircraft. Commercial air service, including direct international flights, is available at Fort Myers International Airport, Orlando International or Tampa International Airports, all within 85 miles of the Commerce Park.

Water:
The Port of Tampa, the nation's 7th largest, is located about 90 miles from Sebring. The deep water ports at Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, Cape Canaveral, and Port Manatee are also easily accessible and provide abundant opportunities for international trade, especially with Latin America and Europe.
