Aerotropolis

Inspired by the research and writing of John D. Kasarda, Director of the Kenan Institute of Private Enterprise at the University of North Carolina's Kenan-Flagler Business School, an Aerotropolis is a new urban form placing airports in the center with cities growing around them, connecting workers, suppliers, executives, and goods to the global marketplace.

Ontario is ideally suited for the Aerotropolis urban design model due to its strategic location in the regional ground transportation system, the availability of prime property on and off the airport, wide-spread community support and the political will to harness the airport’s enormous potential.
