HOUSTON — J. A. Billipp Company has joined forces with land owner, Webber Properties, to develop air cargo and other aviation-related facilities on 36.8 acres located adjacent to the north end of Ellington Airport (EFD).
Ellington Air Commerce Center will accommodate build-to-suit and multi-tenant buildings available for lease or sale, all with direct access to Ellington Airport runways, taxiways and ramp areas, officials say.
“This project offers great potential for a wide range of domestic and international air cargo and aviation-related businesses,” says Andy Billipp, president of J. A. Billipp Company. “Ellington Air Commerce Center has potential for over 600,000 square feet of new commercial/industrial buildings. It will be the only development of its kind in Texas offering direct airport access without commercial passenger airline traffic, combined with immediate access to nearby Houston Port facilities.”
Access to the airfield is being made possible through Houston Airport Systems’ support for the project and cooperation with J. A. Billipp Company, the property and building developer. With no large cargo facilities currently on or nearby Ellington Airport offering airfield access, Ellington Air Commerce Center will give aviation-related businesses an alternative to Bush Intercontinental Airport on the south side of Houston. International companies will further benefit from available Foreign Trade Zone status, officials note.
