SkySong Generates $1.3B in Economic Activity

SkySong, the ASU Scottsdale Innovation Center, “is a job creator with outsized ripple effects” on economic development in the region, with an estimated impact of $58.2 billion during the next 30 years. Moreover, it offers even more value as a brand representing innovation and entrepreneurship.

The estimate is part of a comprehensive market analysis/economic and fiscal impact study conducted by Elliott D. Pollack and Company to gauge the project’s effect on regional economic growth. The study found that the SkySong public-private-university partnership was a catalyst in making it a major part of Arizona’s economic development picture.

Overall, SkySong specifically generates an estimated annual impact of 9,350 total jobs, $584.4 million in wages and $1.3 billion in economic activity. Going forward, including induced development, the 30-year economic impact will exceed $58.2 billion.
