A cornerstone of the Airpark is the development of a residential fly-in community. The neighborhood areas are designed to be a blend of lot sizes within the airside accessible district allowing multiple types of homes from townhouses to estate residences. In addition, planning for variation in parcel depth in the residential community allows for the inclusion of both private hangars on the larger lots and communal hangars for the smaller lots again emphasizing the flexibility and richness of diversity of homes in the community. Neighborhood parks throughout promote open space activities and scenic buffers between land uses.
While new to Canada, there are over 500 residential fly-in communities in the United States. Many are in the northern states with climates similar to Ottawa. The West Capital Airpark is unique in that it combines an Aerospace Business Park and a Residential Fly-in creating a community where people live, work, and play.
