San Manuel Landing Gets Underway at Former Norton AFB
San Manuel Landing, a commercial center, supply and logistics facility, recently broke ground on a site at the former Norton Air Force Base. The 1.1 million-square-foot complex is heralded by the iconic Norton Air Force Base water tower at its entrance.
The development will further the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians’ commitment to long-term investment in the economic development of the region. San Manuel Landing is one of the Tribe’s latest investments in urban renewal and community revitalization.
In addition to creating construction jobs and permanent jobs, the development will add an estimated $6 million in direct financial impact to the region through the payment of impact fees and permits, and approximately $1 million per year in property taxes.
“Today we are walking in the footprints of our ancestors. The interstate system is built along the same trails that our ancestors forged during their travels and we are continuing their journey by establishing San Manuel Landing,” said Ken Ramirez, San Manuel chairman.
