EL CAMPO, Texas – A group including Stonemont Financial Group of Atlanta will break ground in June on a 540-acre rail-served business park in El Campo, which is about 60 miles southwest of Houston.
The project will increase logistics efficiency to and from Mexico and avoid trucking costs and delays, said John Simons of NAI Partners. The business park could have as much as 10 million SF of warehouse space when completed, Simons said at the NAI Partners press briefing this week.
SW International Gateway Business Park, Ridgeline Property Group, Kansas City Southern are participating in the development, which will offer frontage to the US 59/I-69 NAFTA Superhighway.
“The SW International Gateway Business Park represents a strategic opportunity for businesses that ship goods between the United States and Mexico,” said Zack Markwell, CEO and Managing Principal of Stonemont Financial Group. “This development will allow the transportation of goods to occur more efficiently.”
Other key features of the master-planned multi-modal distribution park include:
Approximately 1.4 miles (7,260’) of frontage on US 59/I- 69
Staging area for more than 200 rail cars
Foreign Trade Zone and additional local and state economic incentives
Six Texas ports within 250 miles (Beaumont, Corpus Christi, Freeport, Galveston, Houston, and Port Arthur)
On-site centralized transload station for items crossing the U.S./Mexico border
The ability to deliver build-to-suits within 12 months of executed lease
Fully entitled, development ready, rail-served sites available for lease, build-to-suit, and design-build projects
In addition, Kansas City Southern Railway offers seamless cross-border transportation into and out of Mexico with customs pre-clearance for faster, lower-cost service than trucks can offer. Its state-of-the-art logistics network operating centers located in the U.S. and in Mexico keep trains and shipments moving securely and on time.
Kansas City Southern’s unique rail access, via Kansas City Southern de Mexico, to the Port of Lazaro Cardenas on Mexico’s Pacific coast avoids congestion in California ports.
