Developer Breaks Ground on Houston Area’s Largest Spec Industrial Building

TGS Cedar Port Partners, LP (TGS) today announced that it has broken ground on a 1.2 million-square-foot cross-dock warehouse. The spec building will be delivered to the Houston market 2nd quarter 2022. Currently, the building pad and first slab pour is complete. TGS has kept 100% equity in the project and partnered with Bank of Texas on construction loan financing.

Located at 6363 FM 1405, the distribution building will feature highly desirable amenities such as 40-foot clear height, 8” minimum slab, ring road around the entire building and truck court, LED warehouse lighting, ESFR sprinkler system, oversized truck courts, and ample parking for cars and trailer storage. The office space will be built to suit the tenant’s needs, but a 5,000 SF open layout spec office space will allow the tenant to quickly move into the space. Additional land has the ability to be fully fenced and utilized as an area for additional trailer parking, car parking and outside storage. The 1.2M SF building has the ability to accommodate over 1,000 trailer parking spaces and 1,500 car parking spaces.

The building is located in the booming, multi-modal TGS Cedar Port Industrial Park, ideally located for warehousing, distribution, and fulfillment operations. The building’s location on FM 1405 allows prime access to State Highway 99 (Grand Parkway), Interstate 10, State Highways 225 and 146, and the Port of Houston’s Bayport and Barbours Cut container terminals. Industry leaders such as Wal-Mart, Floor & Décor, IKEA, Home Depot, Niagara Bottling, Webstaurant, Ravago and Vinmar all have major distribution and fulfillment centers in TGS Cedar Port Industrial Park, taking advantage of the location and access to abundant, cost-effective labor.

Powers Brown Architecture is the architect on the project and E.E. Reed Construction L.P. is the general contractor. John Simons, Gray Gilbert, Chris Haro with NAI Partners are the leasing agents for the project.

TGS Cedar Port Industrial Park creates a unique logistics opportunity for users to operate in a prime Port location within one of the prominent industrial parks in America, particularly valuable at a time when suitable land positions in desirable areas have continued to become increasingly scarce. With the newly constructed segment of the Grand Parkway, park customers will be able to easily travel to and from the Port of Houston container terminals with no stoplights. Business Facilities 2021 Rankings Report recently ranked TGS Cedar Port #2, Industrial Park, in the U.S. as the largest U.S. Industrial Park with the best infrastructure.
