Despite a major building boom for large-scale industrial development around Luke Air Force Base, Glendale officials said there will be much more to come as demand from companies across a variety of industries continues to clamor for space in the West Valley.
The influx of new development will bring a wide cross-section of new jobs, Randy Huggins, an economic development officer for the city, said.
“Multiple times a week, we talk to developers or users that either want to develop and sell or lease a building, or develop a building and use it for themselves,” Huggins said.
One of the most recent large land acquisitions in the area was Lincoln Property Company’s $53 million purchase of 140 acres adjacent to Luke Air Force Base, near Litchfield Road and Northern Avenue.
