Tustin Legacy is that portion of the former Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Tustin located within the City of Tustin. The former military facility is mostly in Tustin and was originally built to house the Navy's blimp hangars during WWI and then subsequently reactivated as a helicopter training facility until 1999 when the Department of Defense closed the station. In 2003, the City approved a plan that set forth the framework for development which began in 2004. Tustin Legacy features single-family homes, condos/townhomes, and a superb shopping area known as The District. Even though construction is not yet complete, there are many excellent homes already built and the area benefits from all of the shopping and entertainment available at The District shopping center.
