KAYSVILLE, Utah (AP) -- Construction will likely begin this summer on a 600-acre aerospace research center on the west side of Hill Air Force Base.

The Falcon Hill National Aerospace Research Park will include software, engineering, computer and other manufacturing companies.

The development is part of an Air Force program allowing private companies to lease underutilized military land.

In addition to government office buildings, the first phase of the project will include nearly 2 million square feet of retail space. Facilities will include a shopping center, restaurants, hotels, parking garages and a new hangar at the Hill Aerospace Museum.
