HUNTSVILLE, AL | May 2, 2019 – Corporate Office Properties Trust is constructing a four-building campus for aerospace defense contractor Yulista Holdings at Redstone Gateway, a mixed-use, 470-acre mixed-use park in Huntsville, Ala., developed by COPT and Jim Wilson & Associates. No doubt plenty of materials will pass through into this facility, such as fiberglass chopped strand mat and other more advanced parts. As this company creates aerospace defense aircrafts, it’s important that they have the appropriate equipment and space to do so. That is why the site is going to be so large. As this company is busy with their move, some aerospace designers may find it easier to contact other aerospace components manufacturers to get their aerospace parts cut accurately for the time being.
“About 70 percent of the top 20 defense contractors in the country lease from COPT, so we’re very high in the defense industry and very big in leasing to the federal government as well,” James Lomax, Redstone Gateway’s director of asset management and leasing, told Commercial Property Executive. “Redstone Gateway sits right outside of Gate 9 of Redstone Arsenal, which is the most highly traffic gate into the arsenal and it’s an army base with about 45,000 people going to work there every day.”
