Hancock Airpark

Hancock Airpark is a 425-acre industrial and office park located in the Town of Cicero, New York, which was acquired in 1987 by Onondaga County from the U. S. Air Force and leased to Hancock Field Development Corporation, a private, not-for-profit organization that has the right to option, lease, and sell the land to end users or developers for airport use, aviation-related purposes, or industrial and commercial use. The key objective of HFDC is to attract high-quality manufacturing and commercial facilities to locate at the Airpark.

Why Hancock Airpark? Excellent infrastructure, combined with a strategic location that serves as a gateway to the Northeastern and Midwestern United States as well as Southeastern Canada; an outstanding transportation network; readily available and highly-skilled labor; the presence of a strong, high-technology business community; proximity to some of the nation’s best institutions of higher learning; and high quality of life in CenterState New York make Hancock Airpark an exceedingly attractive site for corporations.

In the last five years, Hancock Airpark has seen more commercial development than any other area in Onondaga County. To date, HFDC has returned 50 acres to the tax rolls, brought more than $30 million in private investment and 750 jobs to Hancock Airpark. In addition, Hancock Field Development Corporation is upgrading roads and infrastructure in the Airpark, opening up 45-50 acres of property for new development.

Strategic Location

Hancock Airpark is located within a one-minute drive of Interstates 81 and 481, approximately five miles north of the City of Syracuse, and is adjacent to Hancock International Airport, which provides easy access to New York City, Philadelphia, the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area, and to Montreal and Quebec in Canada. The Airpark is also within five minutes of the New York State Thruway (I-90), which connects Syracuse with Boston, Rochester, Buffalo, Toronto, Cleveland, Detroit, and Chicago. More than 100 million people live within ten hours driving time. Syracuse also enjoys extensive rail connections to major metropolitan centers in the East and Midwest, and maritime access though the nearby St. Lawrence Seaway.
