Zoned: Industrial 1
Property 6 is situated on the southeast side of the largest regional airport in the Upper Peninsula, K. I. Sawyer International Airport (formerly K. I. Sawyer Air Force Base). 101,991 passengers flew out of K. I. Sawyer in 2021 with Delta and American Airlines offering daily flights to/from Chicago, Detroit and Minneapolis. Snowmobile/ATV trails come right up to the back of this semi wooded property.
The site consists of 20 acres along State Highway M-94 divided into 4 tracts of real estate with a total of 130,000 Sq. Ft. in 8 buildings. Property 6 includes the Tailwinds Bar/Restaurant, (former officers club), former Red Fox Inn, (51 room motel), Dormitories and Private Residences.
There is currently not an operating motel on the K. I. Sawyer property and with the numerous new businesses opening operations at K. I. Sawyer, the demand for restaurants and lodging is growing. This prime location is zoned Industrial 1 and would be a great property for a buyer to subdivide or redevelop.
Additional information is available with the return of this completed release.
