Sea-Tac Conrac On Track

The consolidated rental car facility at Sea-Tac Airport serving Seattle, Wash. is on schedule to open in the spring, according to an Associated Press report.

The $419 million rental complex will be finished in November but won't open immediately to give car rental companies time to ramp up operations.

The 2.1 million-square-foot facility will have a 50,000-square-foot customer service area, 5,400 parking stalls on four floors plus a fifth-floor bus plaza.

Moving the rental cars into the facility will free about 3,200 parking spaces in the Sea-Tac airport garage, according to the AP report.

The conrac is being funded with a $5 daily charge on rental cars. That fee will increase to $6 when it opens.
