There is a 52,000 square foot building at the Cape Girardeau Regional Airport that officials are trying to fill with a prospering business.  The building has a past. Two businesses— Renaissance Aircraft and Commander Premier Aircraft—went bankrupt while filling the space. Airport Manager, Bruce Loy tells KZIM KSIM the building will be a good selling point to potential businesses.

Which is not possible if they have to build new.  Because the building is on airport land, any company that goes in would have to be aircraft related. The city is marketing the colossal space with the help of the Cape Girardeau Area Magnet.
