Cedar Port Industrial Park to Welcome 1.5M SF Center Later This Year
Floor and Décor Outlets of America Inc. is building a 1.5 million-square-foot cross dock distribution center in TGS Cedar Port Industrial Park near Houston that will service the south-central United States. The center has a completion goal of year-end 2021.
“The decision of Floor & Décor to locate in Cedar Port for their regional distribution site follows a trend for larger retailers and e-commerce tenants to choose Cedar Port Industrial Park as their large-scale distribution home,” says William F. Scott, Cedar Port managing partner. “This in turn continues to fuel our growth, allowing us to further enhance our infrastructure and fuel the partnership’s commitment to invest hundreds of millions of dollars on capital improvements in the largest industrial park in North America. By the end of 2021, Cedar Port will have constructed over $250 million in rail, roadway, barge terminal, drainage and utility infrastructure. Our 2021 capital budget contemplates an additional $50 million in similar improvements.”
TGS Cedar Port Industrial Park is the largest master-planned rail-and-barge-served industrial park in the country and offers access for distribution, manufacturing and terminal operations. Cedar Port currently has more than 16 million square feet of industrial and manufacturing warehouses that are either existing or under construction.
“We are now in a position to create development solutions for a wide range of links in the supply chain, from rail-served bulk goods and manufacturing through distribution space and e-commerce/retail delivery,” says John Simons, partner with NAI Partners.
