The steel-framed structure with a combination of moment and brace frames for lateral resistance consists of a partial two-level building with an approximately 61,000-square-foot Main Level and a 5,700-square-foot Second Floor. An additional 5,000 square-feet are planned for a future expansion.
The Main Level includes airline check-in, security screening, administrative and retail space along with exterior patios.

The facility, the first of its kind, allows travelers to check-in with their airline on the United States side of the border, clear customs and proceed across a pedestrian bridge that crossed the U.S./Mexico border and terminates with the Tijuana airport.
