Construction begins on NorthPort Logistics Center in Texas

Home » News » Construction begins on NorthPort Logistics Center in Texas

Construction recently began on a  1.2-million-square-foot NorthPort Logistics Center, located about 40 miles north of Houston in Conroe, Texas. The development partners, Lovett Industrial and Cresset Partners are working with the City of Conroe to build the new logistics facility. Ideally positioned at a 75-acre site within Conroe Business Park, this project’s location provides future tenants with transit accessibility.

The NorthPort Logistics Center is not only centrally located, but also less than an hour’s drive to the Port of Houston. Therefore, the location will enable tenants to reach an estimated 28 million people by truck within a day. According to Lovett’s President, Charlie Meyer, the project’s location addresses all the significant needs of a major distributor. He said it checks every box with regards to accessibility, infrastructure, available incentives, and availability of labor.

Development plans for the NorthPort Logistics Center

The NorthPort Logistics Center is being built as a cross-dock facility, with a 40-foot clear height. It will feature warehousing amenities such as an 8” reinforced concrete slab, 224 dock-high doors, 190’ truck courts, and 273 trailer parks. What’s more, tenants will also enjoy access to the newly constructed four-lane roads at the business park and municipal utilities. In addition, they will also have direct access to three full interchanges on I-45. Construction on the project is scheduled to reach completion by quarter 2 of  2023.

Cresset’s Director, Dominic DeRose, was also pleased with the progress of the NorthPort Logistics Center development. He mentioned that his company had chosen to partner with Lovett Industrial due to their similar goals. DeRose said they were both passionate about building projects that can satisfy the current demand in the logistics space. But this decision would also take into consideration the long-term growth of such projects in the Houston area.

Houston-based Powers Brown Architecture is serving as the lead architect for the NorthPort Logistics Center development. Meanwhile, Alston Construction is working as the project’s general contractor and Bleyl Engineering is in charge of the civil engineering. Nathan Wynn, Jason Dillee, and Ed Frantz of CBRE will handle all the leasing and marketing arrangements.
