Industrial uses at the New Century AirCenter have been in place since and before the Olathe Naval Station transferred the land from the federal government to the county in 1973. The entire airport area is zoned industrial. A cold storage facility is compatible with the land use designation. Proximity to potential customers and access to rail are important for these type of facilities.
Like many industrial areas across the country, there are homes, schools and other businesses located nearby, and the AirCenter has a number of facilities that contain regulated materials. Today this property has wide use of industrial activity from aircraft services to manufacturing services to various kinds of food processing.
