Why Sunflower Commerce Park?
There are many reasons to expand and relocate in Bel Aire, but here are just a few:
800 Acres of Shovel-Ready Sites
With its central U.S. location, the Sunflower Commerce Park represents a unique opportunity to establish manufacturing and light industrial facilities in a transportation nexus where construction and operating costs make Sunflower a smart site selection. The park is one of only two locations in the state that are considered ideal for Union Pacific rail expansion. Phase 1 lots are platted with all assessments complete. The City of Bel Aire has established a streamlined zoning and planning process and attractive incentive packages are available.
The #1 U.S. Manufacturing Metro
The Sunflower Commerce Park is located in Bel Aire, Kansas, a suburb of Wichita, recognized as the #1 manufacturing metro in the U.S. With the nation’s largest aviation workforce, Wichita is supported by advanced manufacturing research and educational institutions, including the National Center for Aviation Training, located just to the south of the new Sunflower Park. More than 8,000 engineers work in the Wichita area, which is also the home of Koch Industries, the second largest privately held company in America.
Geared for Green Industry & Tech
The vision the City of Bel Aire has established for Sunflower Commerce Park is to be a model for ecologically responsible industrial centers and to provide a welcoming environment for technologically advanced manufacturing research and production. We are a community that prides itself on the high quality of life our residents enjoyed in a growing city of scenic parks and wide open spaces. Located near the burgeoning tech sector of Wichita, Sunflower Park is poised to become a magnet for medical technology and advanced materials manufacturers.
