(KFWB NEWS TALK 980) — Lockheed was once the largest employer in Burbank — and the company’s legacy can be seen at the Burbank Empire Center.

The 103-acre open-air mall, which opened nearly 10 years ago on Lockheed’s former Skunk Works site, is expected to generate more than 3,000 jobs and $3.2 million in annual taxes to the city.

The shopping center was built on property that once created aircraft like the U-2 spy plane and the SR-71 Blackbird.
