A nonprofit defense and security company offering space mission technical guidance and advice for civil, commercial, and military customers wants to increase its footprint in Colorado Springs.
Based in El Segundo, California, the Aerospace Corporation has been operating out of a 78,000 square foot building inside the Peak Innovation Park since 2007.
But now Aerospace Corporation officials say that building at 7250 Getting Heights is no longer large enough for their current purposes.
In response, the corporation is making plans to build a 90,000 square foot addition that would include space for offices, and both meeting and conference rooms.
Plans for the project have been submitted to the City of Colorado Springs.
Aerospace Corporation’s expansion plans come on the heels of an announcement by Amazon to build a massive distribution center in the Peak Innovation Park.
Founded in 1960 and with annual revenues in excess of $1 billion, the Aerospace Corporation last year announced the sweeping upgrade of its uptown Albuquerque facilities at 2155 Louisiana Boulevard.
