Spirit Airlines has held a groundbreaking ceremony to celebrate the construction of its new corporate headquarters in Dania Beach, Fla. Spirit is investing up to US$250 million for the creation of a corporate campus of up to 500,000 ft² of space, and the airline plans to add 225 additional jobs over the next five years.

In 2022, approximately 1,000 employees are planned to move from the company’s current facilities in Miramar to the new Dania Pointe site just minutes away from Spirit’s largest operating base, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL). The development will include corporate offices, a new crew training facility with flight simulators, and a corporate training residence all designed for more streamlined workflow and quick access to the airport.

Spirit recently completed the purchase of land from Kimco Realty , the owner and principal developer of Dania Pointe, to secure the land. Gensler will be the architectural firm, and Jones Lang LaSalle was selected as the project advisor.
