Super Neighborhood 42 - IAH Airport Area

Recognized 06.05.2001

Your super neighborhood at-a-glance:

The IAH / Airport Area consists of subdivisions, commercial developments and undeveloped land surrounding George Bush Intercontinental Airport. Planning and land acquisition for the airport began in the early 1960s when this area included heavily wooded land on the edge of development. Many of the small subdivisions here recently received city water and sewer service, reflecting their origins as rural home sites. One such community is Bordersville, the last section of which was recently annexed at its residents’ request. The World Houston and Interwood developments on the airport’s south side are major employment centers.
