Canada-based online furniture company Article will locate a 507,000-square-foot warehouse—its first fulfillment center in Texas—at TGS Cedar Port Industrial Park in Baytown, Texas, under an agreement reached with TGS Cedar Port Partners LP for the build-to-suit project.

Site work will start this quarter and the warehouse is slated for delivery by the fourth quarter at the largest master-planned, rail-and-barge-served industrial park in the U.S. The industrial park is located off State Highway 99 (Grand Parkway), with access to Interstate 10 and State Highways 225 and 146, as well as the Port of Houston’s Bayport and Barbours Cut container terminals.

Article’s build-to-suit project announcement comes after a year of development activity at Cedar Port, with more than 10 million square feet of warehouses starting construction in 2021. TGS Cedar Port broke ground in late 2021 on three industrial speculative buildings—a 1.2 million-square-foot distribution center delivering in May; a 496,000-square-foot distribution center, expandable to 900,000 square feet that can be rail-served or cross-dock configured delivering in the third quarter of this year; and a 150,000-square-foot rail-served building expandable to 600,000 square feet that will be completed by the fourth quarter.

Construction began in September on the largest of the three buildings, which is the Houston market’s largest speculative industrial warehouse. Development began on the other two warehouses in November. Powers Brown Architecture is designing the three spec facilities and E.E. Reed Construction LP is the general contractor. Simons, Gilbert and Chris Haro, also of NAI Partners, are the leasing agents.
