SCOTTSDALE, AZ- The good news for Scottsdale Airpark is that it’s the third largest employment center in the state. The not-so-good news is demand is outstripping room in the 2,370-acre business park, which is prompting the city’s advance planning division to consider redevelopment alternatives.

Before going to the drawing board, however, the city will host its first Greater Airpark Area Plan Visioning Series. The first session, set for May 21, will be geared toward business and property owners. The following day, city officials will host a community workshop. The goal is to get input on the future of the Airpark, which is bound by Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard, Central Arizona Project canal on the north, Thunderbird Road/ Redfield Road on the south, 90th Street/Loop 101 on the east and Scottsdale Road on the west.

City leaders are striving to create a comprehensive redevelopment plan to ensure continued growth on the land, which is adjacent to Scottsdale Municipal Airport. According to the city’s website, Scottsdale Airpark has 2,400 businesses operating in 22.3 million sf, a hub for more than 46,000 workers. The Airpark presently is the third largest employment center in the state, but it’s expected to become the largest one by 2010.
