4 Reasons why there is very little warehouse space for lease or sale in East Houston

Published November 20, 2014 by Eric Hughes #

Why is there little to no available manufacturing and/or storage warehousing available for purchase or lease near the Port of Houston?  Strong local economy?   Maybe.   Top Port in the Nation in many stats?   Partially.  Booming energy sector?  Possibly, but fading.

The real reason the industrial lease and sale market is so tight in East Houston near the port of Houston is due to an almost complete lack of development over the past 30 years in the Loop 610 East/Hwy 225/I-10 East/Port of Houston corridor out to Beltway 8.  Yes there have been a few distribution projects which were developed on a speculative basis, however those have been full for some time.  As for freestanding crane served warehouses from Loop 610 out to Beltway 8…there are less than 4-5 properties available on any given day.  Is this a pure shortsightedness of developers?  Probably somewhat.  However, land is scarce and what is available is overpriced for industrial use.  The Panama Canal will be opening soon and with an expected 20% increase in traffic in the short term, where will this business go?  Probably to another port with adequate available storage and manufacturing warehouseing.
