In March 2009, AIDEA participated at 90% with Mt. McKinley Bank in a $2,500,000 business loan to Airport Park, LLC to own and operate a newly developed class B+ professional office building located in Fairbanks. Construction of the 9,169 SF, four unit office building was begun in 2006 and was recently completed with the addition of a 1,000 SF garage.
One business professional suggested that this may be the nicest single-floor office structure in Fairbanks. It features a nice common area entrance with "back door" exits in each unit. Heat is provided by natural gas hot water boiler and in addition, the garage is heated with an under floor heating system. The air-to-air exchange system and large parking lot also separate this building from the competition.
A significant advantage of this facility is its location off Airport Way and its close proximity to Fairbanks Memorial Hospital. The building is fully occupied and tenants include the FBI, a sleep clinic, a dental practice and a commercial real estate business.
This project has created seven full-time and three part-time positions.
