Birmingham Shuttlesworth International Airport (BHM) is the largest airport in the state of Alabama and serves as a prominent engine for regional economic growth. The airport boasts connectivity at all scales, making it a significant logistical hub. BHM is located just five miles northeast of downtown Birmingham which provides seamless access to the innovative companies and startups located in the urban core. Growth at the airport and within the region is also supported by the connectivity to the growing metro regions of Atlanta, via the I-20 and Nashville via the I-65. MXD is working jointly with Stantec to update the existing Airport Land Use Redevelopment Plan with market and economic driven land use recommendations for the approximate 768 acres of land within the study area.
