Houston, Texas (August 23, 2021) – NAI James E. Hanson and NAI Partners announce they have been selected to market a 60-acre industrial property located within the Watco Greens Port Industrial Park at 1755 Federal Road in Houston, Texas. Steve Pastor of NAI James E. Hanson’s Global Supply Chain, Ports & Rail Logistics Practice along with NAI Partners’ Gray Gilbert, Chris Haro and Jack Gilbert will handle the leasing assignment on behalf of the property’s owner, Watco.
Owned by Watco, a single-source transportation and supply chain services company with locations throughout North America and Australia, the 735-acre Watco Greens Port Industrial Park is a key piece of Port Houston’s shipping infrastructure. The site boasts over three million square feet of warehouse space, storage for 1,600 rail cars across four rail yards and seven deep water and nine barge berths along the Houston Ship Channel. The multimodal industrial park is capable of easily handling ocean vessels, barges, trains, and trucks carrying a diverse variety of freight such as dimensional shipments including wind turbine components, vessels, and machinery; plastics; liquids such as chemicals, petrochemicals, and petroleum products or crude oil refined products, and ethanol; building materials; bulk solids and steel in all forms. NAI James E. Hanson and NAI Partners have been the exclusive leasing brokerages for the entire Greens Port Industrial Park since 2020.
Spanning 60 acres within the Greens Port Industrial Park, the property’s unique multimodal accessibility and build-to-suit opportunities present a rare opportunity for tenants with complex shipping and fulfillment needs. With access to Watco’s robust dock infrastructure along the Houston Ship Channel, tenants at the Greens Port Industrial Park can easily transport freight to and from national and international ports. Additionally, the property offers ample connections to Union Pacific, BNSF and Kansas City Southern’s international and national rail networks. Select buildings within the Greens Port Industrial Park also offer direct freight rail loading capacity. Further accentuating Green Port’s potential, the site is located just one mile from Interstate 10 and features direct highway access to the Barbours Cut Container Terminal and the Bayport Container Terminal at Port Houston, the number one U.S. port in waterborne tonnage. Tenants at the Greens Port Industrial Park can also make use of Watco’s on-site stevedoring, drayage and material handling services to ensure operational efficiency and significant cost savings on day one in their new space.
“One of the most critical lessons to come out of the pandemic was the importance of ensuring resiliency and flexibility in all components of international and national supply chains,” said Pastor. “Located nearby one of the nation’s busiest multimodal transportation hubs with almost limitless connectivity and flexibility, Greens Port Industrial Park is a truly unmatched opportunity for international and national companies aiming to add long-term viability and cost savings to their supply chains.”
