Transwestern Goes Big on I-10
Transwestern Development purchased 74 acres in West Ten Business Park and is breaking ground in July on West Ten Distribution Center. (Above, a photo from the interchange groundbreaking—see below for more info.) Phase 1 is two spec industrial buildings totaling 415k SF, which will deliver in Q2 ’15. 42 acres remains for future development, which can accommodate 800k SF more. With a potential to reach 1.2M SF, it’s one of the largest projects Transwestern Development has ever built. SVP Pete Johnston says demand for industrial space continues to outstrip supply, and the I-10 corridor has been the most robust path of growth and the most important transportation artery in the region. (Not to be a stickler, fellas, but only one of you is wearing proper eye protection for a construction project.)
Pete tells us the project has the scale and flexibility to satisfy a variety of user types. (Phase 1 has both cross-dock and front-load facilities.) Here’s the site on I-10 in Katy—the City is completing construction of Cane Island Parkway, which will link I-10 and US 90. TxDOT will launch a four-way interchange with I-10 this summer. Transwestern’s site has 2,800 linear feet of I-10 frontage and direct access to that interchange. Transwestern's industrial team is handling leasing.
