Voit Development Co. will start construction this month on Burbank Airport Commerce Center, a $44-million, 480,000-square-foot industrial park adjacent to the Burbank Airport. The site, formerly part of a Lockheed facility, was sold to Voit by the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority for $16.3 million in a transaction that closed last week. The parcel became available for sale after the airport authority failed to obtain approval from the city of Burbank to build a passenger terminal.
