I realize this thread was active three years ago, but in my mind, it's still a stimulating issue for lively conversation.
I am starting a similar project, but its challenging because the land in question is generally reserved for the following:
"The primary development objective in this area is to encourage a wide range of industrial and related uses, including services related to the Airport and other business and service/employment opportunities compatible with existing and future airport operations and related uses in the area. The addition of airport-related service uses and activities as allowed uses serves and strengthens the International Airport as the primary air transportation hub within the region."
Additionally, zoning prohibits the following uses:
There was significant development in the area roughly 15 years ago, but nothing has happened since. Frankly, the land is not in a great location for industrial uses, and apparently, the local port authority has no immediate plans for the site. So, my thoughts are is there a way to combine residential and commercial mixed uses with industrial/airport supporting uses? Bringing mixed use to the site may stimulate development on what will likely remain barren land for the foreseeable future. Does anyone have thoughts on this matter?
