New 175-acre business park planned near airport


A new initiative is in the works that will help commercial development in the Bush Intercontinental Airport area.

Gretchen Larson, economic development director for the East Aldine Management District said that she recently met with commercial developers who are building a 175-acre business park near John F. Kennedy Blvd. and Aldine Bender Rd.

The Kennedy Greens Business Park is the first project of the newly created North Houston Economic Development Corporation, Larson said. She added that she, along with representatives from Center Point Energy have begun to meet with Clay Development & Construction, Inc. to determine what role each partner in the effort will play.

According to Charlie Christ, with Clay Development, the Kennedy Greens Business Park will offer build-to-suit office and/or warehouse space as needed by the client.

The location, he added, is a prime spot with easy access to both Highway 59 and Beltway 8, as well as the airport. The facility will also be serviced by City of Houston utilities.
