Boston-based Suffolk Construction said it recently marked the topping off of the 50-acre Rental Car Center at Boston’s Logan International Airport.
Suffolk is managing construction of the Massachusetts Port Authority’s $300 million complex to consolidate Logan’s rental car facilities.
The Rental Car Center project, which was formerly titled the Consolidated Rental Agency Complex, or ConRAC, includes construction of a four level, 1.2 million square-foot precast parking garage and 112,000 square-foot customer service building that will house all rental car companies and their vehicles serving Logan in one location.
The project also includes a reconfigured taxi pool, roadway and intersection improvements, site access improvements, and landscaping. The individual rental car bus fleet and Massport shuttle bus fleet will be consolidated from more than 100 buses to 28 buses that use alternative fuel. The new bus fleet will help to ease road and curb congestion and reduce vehicle emissions, Suffolk said.
Construction of ConRAC began in June 2010. Construction is scheduled to be completed in September 2014. Chris Reidy can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
