HILL AIR FORCE BASE — The first commercial building at the new Falcon Hill National Aerospace Research Park opened Monday, bringing contractors on base in an integrated ICBM facility.

Rep. Rob Bishop, R-Utah, said the 151,783 square foot facility for the ICBM Prime Integration Team led by Northrop Grumman is a "major milestone achievement for the future of Hill." Hill maintains the nation's land-based intercontinental ballistic missile fleet.

Falcon Hill is the largest enhanced use lease in Air Force history and the first to use a purely commercial model. It is estimated that 15,000 new aerospace industry jobs and approximately 60,000 additional jobs will be generated by the completion of the Falcon Hill project.
