June 13, 2018 - Crow Holdings Industrial (CHI), the industrial development division of Dallas‐based Crow Holdings, today announced groundbreaking of a 349,050 square foot Class-A cross-dock tilt-wall distribution building. The project, called Victory Commerce Center, will feature state of the art features including 32’ clear height, 185’ foot truck aprons, ample car parking, and outside storage. Delivery is slated for the 1st quarter 2019. The Colliers team of Jon Lindenberger, Walter Menuet and Paul Dominique will market the property for CHI. Mr. Lindenberger also represented CHI in the transaction.
The property is strategically located in the heart of Houston’s southeast industrial submarket, serving the needs of the rapidly expanding petrochemical industry and the Port of Houston. The site provides convenient access to Highway 225, Beltway 8, Highway 146 and Fairmont Parkway, allowing connectivity to all areas of the petrochemical and Port of Houston complex.
“We are excited to kick off this project and offer a modern state-of-the-art distribution facility to a wide range of industrial users serving the expanding petrochemical and Port of Houston industries,” said Managing Director Cory Driskill.
