Leased parcels and vacant parcels

Airport Leasing Policies

Currently there are two vacant lease parcels; one is located at the southwest corner and includes the 300 building at 300 Rainier Ave N, the other is an undeveloped parking lot (previously Mindemann's Restaurant) located at the northwest corner adjacent to the Will Rogers-Wiley Post Seaplane Base.

Requests for Proposals will be accepted and reviewed upon completion of the Airport Master Plan. For more information on development options, please contact the Airport Manager. 

The 2017 Lease map displays all leased areas on the Airport, including lessee name and parcel address.

In May 2019, the Airport contracted with Valbridge Associates to perform an Airport-wide market appraisal of specified leases, and to establish an updated standard ground lease rate.  For 2019, ground lease rates have been established using the Consumer Price Index-Urban at an average rate of $1.10 per square foot per year.  Building lease rates are established by the market appraisal.

Pilot Controlled Lighting

The Renton Municipal Airport utilizes Pilot Controlled Lighting, which provides air-to-ground radio control of the airport lighting systems.

The pilot selects the intensity by selecting the proper frequency on the communications radio, then keying the microphones a prescribed number of times within a 5 second interval. The lights will remain at the selected intensity level for 15 minutes if no subsequent pulses are received to change the intensity.

Radio frequencies

  • Renton ATCT/CTAF frequency: 124.70
  • ATIS frequency: 126.95
  • AirO UNICOM frequency: 122.95
  • ProFlight UNICOM frequency: 122.85
  • GROUND frequency: 121.60
