Bellaire International Airport On Bissonnet St. & Bellaire Blvd.

Highrise Tower

Recommended Posts

I was browsing the newspaper The Citizen dated January 28, 1948 and came across an article about a proposed City of Bellaire municipal airport called Bellaire International Airport which was going to be located on Richmond Road (now Bissonnet Street) and Bellaire Boulevard.

The airport master plan was designed by architecture firm Leigh Fisher Associates, Inc.

Very cool find!!

Signed by C.E. Nayland, president of the board of directors of the organization, the letter to Mayor Massey stated: "It is the board's opinion that the purchase of this tract of land is very desirable to provide future airport facilities which will be needed in anticipation of our city's growth.

The land in question consists of a 4000-acres tract west of Richmond Road and Bellaire Boulevard lying in the Westmoreland Farm area.

Glenn H. McCarthy, millionaire Houston oilman, has leased the acreage which he has offered to turn over to the airport commission for the construction of the huge air terminal.
