Houston – Transwestern Development Co. (TDC®) today announces it has broken ground on Sam Houston Distribution Center, an 833,720-square-foot, Class A industrial park in Northwest Houston. The three-building park is slated for delivery in second quarter 2020. TDC Partner Ben Newell is leading the development, while Transwestern Commercial Services is handling the leasing.

“With Sam Houston Distribution Center underway, TDC has now broken ground on five buildings in Houston encompassing 1.2 million square feet in the third quarter,” said Newell. “Houston’s industrial market continues to become more integrated into the national logistics chain due in part to the growing synergies of its inland and ocean ports

Located near Sam Houston Race Park at Wind Mill Park Road and Fallbrook Pines Drive, the property provides convenient access to Beltway 8 and Highways 249 and 290. The front-load and cross-dock buildings range from 138,720 square feet to 494,800 square feet and can accommodate users from 35,000 to 833,720 square feet. The ceiling heights range from 32-feet to 36-feet to accommodate the higher racking system used by today’s sophisticated industrial users.
