LAX Consolidated Rent-a-Car Facility Achieves Handover Milestone

The Ready Return/Idle Storage building at Los Angeles International Airport’s (LAX) Consolidated Rent-A-Car (ConRAC) facility has been handed over to rental car tenants to develop their business space.

Following the completed construction of the building’s infrastructure, including elevators, escalators, hardscape and landscape, the facility’s tenants will now carry out improvement work on their customer experience spaces, waiting areas, office spaces and entry/exit booths.

This handover marks the start of the project’s next phase of construction. Once complete, the ConRAC building will the largest rental car facility in the world.

Justin Erbacci, Chief Executive Officer, Los Angeles World Airports said:

“We are on the pathway to a completely reimagined airport that will streamline and elevate the LAX passenger experience. The Consolidated Rent-A-Car facility is a key part of our vision of a world-class experience for those coming to Los Angeles, and the handover to rental car tenants is the next major step in making our plans a reality.”

The ConRAC facility spans approximately 6.3 million square feet and includes the Ready Return/Idle Storage building, where customers will pick-up and drop-off their vehicles, an automated people mover (APM) train station, which will connect the facility to the Central Terminal Area, and a Quick Turn Around building to service the rental cars.

The five-story structure will house five rental car companies with 13 brands, including Enterprise Rent-A-Car Company of Los Angeles, The Hertz Corporation, Avis Budget Car Rental, Sixt Rent a Car and Fox Rent A Car.

233,000 cubic yards of concrete were poured to construct the facility, making it the second-largest concrete building in the US behind the Pentagon.

Karl Schaefer, LAX ConRAC Partners Project Executive said:

“The Ready Return/Idle Storage building turn-over for tenant improvements is a particularly noteworthy milestone for our team. After more than four million work hours, this achievement brings us one key step closer to opening the largest rental car facility in the world at LAX.”

Over the next year, work will continue on the facility’s access roads. The Quick Turn Around building will also be handed over to rental car tenants later this year, with the full project set to be complete in summer 2023.
