Aerotropolis: The 21st Century Real Estate Engine

11/09/2014   |  09:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Location: Morial Convention Center, Room 217

New this year! We will be looking at the impact of aviation access on communities and how real estate development on and around airports is shaping future success for the community and the region.

This presentation will illustrate airport city aka aerotropolis development in the US and around the world and explain why these new urban forms have emerged as 21st century real estate engines.

NOTE: Additional aviation related sessions are at 10:15am and 11:30am. Content for these has been developed by drawing on the experiences of members who are involved in aviation related real estate activities such as local aviation authority board members, residential airpark developments, and more. Members who are pilots are also involved.

What is an aerotropolis?
An aerotropolis is a metropolitan sub-region whose infrastructure, land use, and economy are centered on an airport. The aerotropolis consists of a multimodal airport city at its core and extended corridors and clusters of aviation-linked businesses and their associated residential developments. As of 2014, more than 80 airport cities and their greater aerotropolises were being planned or under development globally with nearly half in the United States. In some places, such as the Washington Dulles region and Dallas-Ft. Worth, the aerotropolis has become the primary locus of metropolitan economic and residential growth.

Two articles by our speaker are attached below. The first article includes lists of 80 US and globally located airport cities.
