INFRASTRUCTURE

AIR

The entire northwest Houston area is only minutes from George Bush International Airport (IAH). IAH is served by 26 airlines flying non-stop to 5 continents with flights to 190 destinations, including 72 international.

David Wayne Hooks Airport, located just south of the 99 Grand Parkway in northwest Houston is a popular airport with many of our corporate users.

Hobby Airport in south Houston is located within an hour of northwest Houston and a hub for Southwest Airlines.

LAND

Northwest Houston has incredible highway connectivity which has made it a popular location for many warehouse and distribution centers for the region. Our area is accessed by US Interstate 45, Hardy Tollway, State Highway 249, Texas 290, 99 Grand Parkway and Beltway 8.

Mass transit is served by METRO. Local bus service has several routes through northwest Houston in addition to park and service routes originating to and from downtown Houston.

SEA

The Port of Houston is ranked 1st in the US in foreign tonnage and the largest container ship port in the US Gulf Coast. Easy access to the port along Beltway 8 (and the 99 Grand Parkway in the future) is another reason northwest Houston is attractive to industrial and warehouse users.

TELECOMMUNICATIONS

Northwest Houston telecommunications network is robust. Fiber optics and redundant broadband services are delivered from an array of network service providers.

POWER & GAS

Centerpoint Energy, an investor-owned utility, is the primary distributor of electricity and natural gas in the Houston area. However, electricity distribution was deregulated in Texas in 2002 opening the door for many service providers to enter the market offering electrical services. Centerpoint continues to own and operate the distribution infrastructure.

WATER & SEWER

Water and sewer services in northwest Houston are predominately served by any number of municipal utility districts (MUDs). Contact our office or your realtor to find out which MUD serves the site where you intend to locate or expand your business.
