“We’re focused on critically located infill sites,” said Robert Wheless, LPC’s Senior Vice President – South Region. “We’ve carefully studied tenant profiles and intentionally created a master plan and building designs that are specifically tailored to this submarket.”
“The City of Missouri City is committed to the attraction of capital investment, quality development and new jobs,” said Joe Esch, Economic Development Director, City of Missouri City.
LPC’s partners Method Architecture, FCL Builders and Kimley-Horn have focused on onsite and offsite improvements to make the site ready. JLL’s Houston industrial team led by Senior Vice President, John Talhelm, and Vice President, Kevin Erck, are leasing the property.
