Are airports becoming the ‘new downtowns’ of American cities? In new research which examines 62 airports in 51 US metropolitan areas, Stephen Appold finds that airports are important, with a large majority anchoring their own concentrations of employment, but that this employment varies compared to that of city CBDs. He writes that understanding how much employment, of what types, and for what reason locate near airports will aid in allocating land as cities continue to change.
