Completed Projects

National Aviation Research and Technology Park (NARTP)

NARTP Project Building CompletedThe Atlantic County Improvement Authority developed the first of seven buildings at the 55 acre NARTP adjacent to the William J. Hughes Technical Center and Atlantic City International Airport. The 69,375 square foot building was completed in 2019 and is a centerpiece of the County’s Aviation Hub initiative. At full buildout it is anticipated that the park will consist of seven buildings totaling over 400,000 square feet of offices and laboratories dedicated to Aviation research and development and aviation related STEM activities.

The initiative began in 2006 when, under the direction of the County, the Improvement Authority engaged Wallace Roberts Todd for the Aviation Research and Technology Park Master Plan. The report concluded that the market for the ARTP exists and need to foster local, state and national support for development, a non-profit entity has been formed with an adequate operating budget to work on developing a financing strategy for the park, the WJHTC can be a major draw for tenants at the new park, but a major marketing program must be put in place to define the unique aviation research focus of the park, the project’s close proximity to the Atlantic City International Airport and the Atlantic City Expressway can help in the marketing effort.

Starting in 2009, ACIA provided project management/contract administration services and field observations for construction of the park’s infrastructure including interior roadway, water and sewer mains, FAA communications duct bank and sanitary sewer pump station.

In 2016 ACIA began the processing of building and owning the 3 story, 69,375 SF building by procuring architecture and engineering services, and following through with bid cycling and ultimately construction management.
