Houston reaches for the stars once againHouston reaches for the stars once againhttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=145552016-09-19T05:00:00Z2016-09-19T19:50:00Z

​​HOUSTON - Space City is reaching for the stars again.
Now that Houston's Spaceport application has been approved by the FAA's Office of Commercial Space Transportation, and Boeing has officially moved out, the Houston Airport System (HAS) is full-throttle towards leasing over 600 acres.

Last year, the HAS spent $6.9 million on the 53,000-sf office building that will house new Spaceport tenants. The building near NASA's Buoyancy Laboratory had been solely occupied by Boeing until the company relocated.

With Boeing officially out, Houston aerospace officials are ramping up efforts to land new tenants that will keep Houston at the forefront of all things space.

On August 11, the Spaceport's first tenant, Intuitive Machines, moved in, and began building unmanned aerial systems and drones for commercial use.

The Spaceport offers the first dedicated infrastructure for commercial space flight in Houston.

The Houston Aerospace Support center features 53​,000-sf of laboratory and office space, complete with co-working space for early stage companies.

Houston hopes to showcase its Spaceport at the upcoming Spacecom, the largest dedicated space commerce event in the U.S.
