HOUSTON - A unique neighborhood will break ground this month at the West Houston Airport located at 18000 Groschke Rd. The airport has a 4,000-foot runway, more than 300 aircraft, and soon about 40 new homes with access to the taxiway.

The concept, known as Aerovillas, was the idea of Woody Lesikar, general manager of the West Houston Airport. The Aerovilla communities are hardly new, and often are known by other names, such as fly-in communities or residential airparks.

Most Aerovillas are multilevel homes between 3,000 and 5,000 sf that include an attached 1,600- to 3,600-sf aircraft hangar. The Aerovillas have a starting price of about $1.2 million.

There is a homeowners association and dues that must be collected to maintain the area landscaping, as well as the lighting for the taxiways and the valet fuel service that will be available to residents. Deed restrictions call for residents to have an airplane in the hangar.

The West Houston Airport has become one of the closest private airports to the Energy Corridor.

The next closest airport is in Sugar Land. Thirteen Aerovillas are planned in the first phase, and each will have a different floor plan. The first plan is designed and will be built this year.
