View Scottsdale Airpark Major Employers in a full screen map

With its status as one of the largest employment centers in the State of Arizona, anchored by the Scottsdale Airport, the Scottsdale Airpark is a major economic driver for the city. Inside its 8.6 square mile area, it contains over 2,900 businesses and employs over 51,000 (current figures are estimates based on data from EMSI and City of Scottsdale). It houses some of the most prestigious companies in the western United States, including Go Daddy headquarters, Taser headquarters, JDA Software headquarters, Nautilus Insurance headquarters, Quicken Loans, CVS Caremark and Vanguard.

The Airpark combines a combination of a skilled workforce, transportation options and an extensive infrastructure of over 2 million square feet of commercial space. Its location at the corner of the east-west and north-south branches of the Loop 101 Freeway allows strategic access to one of the most educated and qualified workforces in Arizona.

Recent revised Airpark planning regulations (Planned Airpark Core Development) provide new opportunities for building height and FAR that will allow much more flexibility as Airpark development continues in the future.
