The Chandler Airpark area is a nine-square-mile employment hub that surrounds the Chandler Municipal Airport, one of the busiest general aviation airports in the U.S. The airport serves as the area’s anchor and a major economic driver, generating almost $110 million in total economic activity each year.

Several nationally and internationally recognized companies have established offices in the Airpark Area in recent years, bringing thousands of new jobs to the area. Additional employment growth is anticipated as new development projects lease-up and more projects are delivered.
