Business growth in the Greater Scottsdale Airpark area will bring another 13,000 jobs by 2020, most of them in professional, technical and financial services occupations, according to an updated economic study.
The study also cited the need to redevelop older portions of the Airpark and recommended a shift toward more mixed-use developments to help keep the area competitive with other emerging job centers around the Valley.
The study by Gruen Gruen + Associates covers expected growth in the
traditional business area around the Scottsdale Airport as well as
less-developed land along Loop 101 from Raintree Drive to Scottsdale Road.
It updates a similar report the firm completed for the city in 1999.
The report will be used to help guide the Greater Airpark Community Area Plan currently being prepared by the city’s Advance Planning Division, and also makes recommendations for policy actions to keep the Airpark in its position as one of the premier business locations in the Valley.
The full report and an abbreviated summary can be found on the City’s
website at: http://www.scottsdaleaz.gov/economics.asp
