Willow Run and Detroit Metropolitan Airports are the anchors for the development of a world class Aerotropolis. The elements are in place - major airport facilities, 25,000 acres of developable land, and engaged and supportive community leadership.
Over the long term, the Detroit Region Aerotropolis will be transformed into a mixed use development. Plans are to include facilities to support cargo transfer and movement as well as retail and residential areas to service the growing workforce as well as travelers.
Incentives are available for companies to locate in the area.
With a strong manufacturing base including research and development in advanced technology such as Automotive, Advanced Engineering and Alternative Energy, Detroit is ideally positioned to become a global center for cargo and logistics activity.
