GSP breaks ground on new parking garage and consolidated rental car facility

February 27, 2024

Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP) broke ground on a new parking garage and consolidated rental car facility. The two-year, $97 million project will be open to the public in early 2026.

Parking Garage C, located adjacent to the terminal building, will offer 750 new public vehicle parking spaces and 750 ready-return rental car spaces. The garage’s public parking section will offer time-saving Park Assist technology allowing customers to quickly locate available spaces. The rental car portion will include a spacious transaction lobby, and reserved spaces for premium rental car customer vehicle pick-ups, quick drop off, fueling and car wash capabilities.

“GSP has announced eight new airline routes that will start later this year, as a result, we expect to have a record number of passengers travel through GSP in 2024,” said GSP’s president and CEO Dave Edwards. “To accommodate expected growth in the years to come and continue to provide exceptional customer amenities, we need to bring additional vehicle parking online and enhance our rental car operations. We believe that this new facility will not only meet our current demand but also position us for sustained growth in the future.”

Parking Garage C is one of a series of projects designed to provide additional parking capacity, enhance rental car operations, reduce roadway congestion, and enhance the airport’s ability to accommodate future growth. In 2021, two new surface parking lots were constructed and in 2023 the airport’s terminal roadway system was redesigned allowing for future airport expansion.

The design of Garage C and Consolidated Rental Car Facility was led by Greenville-based firm, Ls3p. Brasfield & Gorrie was selected as the Construction Manager for the project.

A recent report revealed that GSP contributes $4 billion in economic impact on the region each year. With $427.3 million in capital improvements planned over the next six years, GSP’s positive effect on the local economy is expected to increase significantly in the coming years.
