The Metropolitan Airpark (MAP) is a multi-phased development that will transform the Brown Field Municipal Airport into an economic engine in Otay Mesa.
The project includes 331 acres of development at the airport including airside facilities with a new jet fixed based operation, T-hangars and heliport, over 1.3 million square feet of industrial and commercial space, a 6-8 MW solar field, as well as hotels and restaurants. At full build-out, Metropolitan Airpark will provide 4,000 permanent jobs, 8,000 long-term construction jobs, and is anticipated to bring $500 million in annual revenue to the region.
In addition to the onsite development at the Brown Field Municipal Airport, MAP will be constructing offsite infrastructure improvements that will facilitate better traffic circulation in Otay Mesa. The Otay Chamber of Commerce has been an early supporter of this project, endorsing not only the opportunities generated from the redevelopment within the airport, but also recognizing the positive “spillover” effect that this project will have on furthering economic development overall in Otay Mesa and the rest of South County.
