Northmarq Arranges Financing

HOUSTON — Northmarq’s Warren Hitchcock  and Emily Zarcaro  secured an equity capitalization for the Port 99 industrial project, a to-be-built 1.2 million SF property site at the Grand Parkway 99 on FM 2354 Road in Baytown. Northmarq arranged the equity through a discretionary private equity fund that specializes in joint venture and preferred equity across North America in industrial, multifamily and life sciences.

“Through a very difficult and volatile market we successfully cleared the capital markets while strategically leveraging Northmarq’s relationships in order to procure the unique terms this sponsor and development required to be successful, considering the changing market fundamentals. Ultimately, we were able to accommodate a quick closing timeline inside 30 days and provide a win-win-win for the client, equity partner and senior lender,” said Warren Hitchcock, managing director.

“We believe the demand for this industrial product is very strong in this submarket. Therefore, this development will be very successful with leasing interest occurring already. Finding this type of capital is extremely important to our clients today, with banks and investors on the sidelines, so we must stay persistent.”

The industrial development site is in southeast Houston near the Port of Houston, the No. 1 port for exports in the nation, the largest port on the Gulf Coast and the largest port in Texas. The Houston Ship Channel is 52-miles long and is a vital economic engine for the Houston region.

Port 99 will consist of a large cross dock facility with the ability to expand, as well as a smaller front load building. The structures will also have 437 parking stalls, 1,184 trailer parking stalls and have a clearance height of 32 to 40 feet.

GTIS Partners Buys Site

HOUSTON — GTIS Partners,  a New York-based global real estate investment firm managing $4.3 billion in gross assets with a U.S. focus on residential and industrial/logistics investments, acquired 26 acres near Beltway 8  to develop a 484,000 SF industrial project in southeast Houston.

The site is in the port-centric southeast submarket, one of the most in-demand submarkets in Houston. GTIS will develop this project itself in the fourth quarter of 2023 by constructing two buildings, a 355,000 SF cross dock and a 129,000 SF rear load, totaling 484,000 SF. The firm will capitalize on the increasing container traffic at the port.

“This transaction aligns well with our plans for purposeful expansion in MSAs across the U.S., and we look forward to breaking ground later this year so that we can provide two high-quality properties to future tenants,” said Robert McCall, partner and head of U.S. Industrial and Brazil Acquisitions at GTIS.

Gaurav Sahay, managing director of Industrial and Logistics at GTIS, added: “With this acquisition, we have the unique opportunity to deliver a project to tenants who are looking to locate to or expand in the southeast submarket, in an infill site that offers proximity to the Port of Houston, strategic highway access and excellent visibility.”

GTIS Partners has offices in São Paulo, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Atlanta and  Charlotte.
