City leaders in Bel Aire broke ground today on the first phase of Sunflower Commerce Park.
"The city is developing the first 155 acres of the 800-acre industrial park as 'shovel-ready' for companies to begin building," according to a news release from the City of Bel Aire.
The first tenant is Century Manufacturing, which purchased three acres in July to build a 36,000-square-foot building to house its manufacturing, warehousing and office space needs. As the first tenant, Century employs about 30 people. The company wants to add 20 more jobs in two years.
Running through the 800-acre tract is a Union Pacific industrial line. Bel Aire is currently designing a rail siding on the north side with a spur possible on the south side.
The site is also adjacent to Jabara Airport and the National Institute of Aviation Research and the National Center for Aviation Training.
Sunflower Commerce Park is between Webb and Greenwich Roads, and 53rd and 45th Streets.
