Ridge Nabs 29 Acres, Plans Southwest Commerce Center

Ridge, the industrial development arm of Transwestern Development Co., acquired 29 acres at Beltway 8 and SH 90 in Missouri City, TX. With the acreage in hand, the company is planning to develop Southwest Commerce Center, a 477,355-square-foot speculative industrial project.

Construction is scheduled to launch in May 2018, with completion anticipated in early 2019.
The development at 611 S. Cravens Rd. will have a 32-foot clear height, 129 dock doors, 58 trailer parking spaces and 275 car parking spaces. The site is near major logistics and retail tenants, including FedEx’s new 300,000-square-foot facility, and Best Buy’s recently announced 550,000-square-foot logistics facility.

“We are excited to move forward with Southwest Commerce Center and provide high-quality space to an underserved area of Houston that is rapidly expanding,” said Ben Newell with Ridge. Transwestern is leasing the project.
