As the world’s first truly urban commercial spaceport, Houston Spaceport offers unmatched business opportunities for aviation and aerospace companies of any size. The Spaceport is located on the southeast side of Ellington Airport, a mixed-use, general aviation airport with virtually limitless potential for expansion and development.
Houston Spaceport gives tenants the tools, space, facilities and infrastructure they need to operate and grow their commercial aerospace businesses. As a launch and landing site for suborbital, reusable launch vehicles as well as a center for innovation, the Spaceport offers a number of attractive build-to-suit leasing opportunities.
Tenants may build on partial, single or multiacre lots to suit their particular business needs.
The Spaceport’s Phase 1 Expansion encompasses 153.6 acres of critical infrastructure including streets, water and wastewater pipelines and electrical power distribution facilities.
Tenants of Houston Spaceport have two world-class runways at their disposal. Because NASA, all five branches of the military and general aviation all use Ellington Airport, it is designed to handle virtually any horizontal take-off aircraft or spacecraft.
|Runway||Current Length and Width||Expansion Capability|
|17R/35L||9000' x 150'||Yes — 3000'|
|4/22||8001' x 150'||No|
