TGS Cedar Port Industrial Park, located in Chambers County near Houston, Texas, is the largest master-planned, rail-and-barge-served industrial park in the U.S. and offers industry-leading access for distribution, manufacturing, and terminal users.


TGS Cedar Port Industrial Park, located in Chambers County near Houston, Texas, is the largest master-planned, rail-and-barge-served industrial park in the U.S. and offers industry-leading access for distribution, manufacturing, and terminal users.

Ideally situated in Baytown across the Houston Ship Channel from Bayport and Barbours Cut Container Terminals, TGS Cedar Port spans approximately 15,000 acres with heavy utilities and industrial and commercial transportation infrastructure in place. With more than 11,000 acres available for sale, lease, build-to-suit, and design builds, including in excess of 3 miles of barge depth waterfront, land sites are delivered “turn-key”—fully entitled with utilities and detention in place. The Park is both barge-served and is dual served by the Union Pacific and the BNSF railroads, and can accommodate users from 4 acres to more than 1,500 acres.

James Scott, President of Construction and Infrastructure of TGS Cedar Port Partners, L.P., stated, “Since acquiring TGS Cedar Port Industrial Park in December of 2014, Cedar Port Partners’ vision has been to create the railroad infrastructure and operations capability to serve the greater Houston market, as well as the nation. Cedar Port has a global reach supported by the two Port of Houston worldclass container ports near the park. By the end of this year, Cedar Port will have constructed over $200 million in common rail, barge, utility, and drainage infrastructure to the development of the industrial park.”

TGS Cedar Port—located in the Houston Industrial sector’s Southeast submarket, which has been one of the fastestgrowing in all of Texas during the past six years—is one of the largest intermodal transportation logistics facilities in the world, with more than 100 miles of dual service operating track owned and operated within the park. The mainline rail service is provided by Union Pacific and BNSF Railway. Both operators share track rights to the industrial rail spur entering the park, and the Union Pacific and BNSF operate nearby intermodal facilities in Harris County. TGS operates and oversees rail service within the park and can tailor operations to customer needs. The current storage capacity is 4,000 railcars and expanding to over 5,000 railcars. The current rail infrastructure consists of: Union Pacific and BNSF interchange yard with infrastructure adequate to interchange six 135 car trains; capability to handle 286,000-lb. railcars; rail-served aggregates, asphalt, and ready mix plants; rail-served warehousing, steel mills, chemical plants, and other industries; and locomotive repair facility and railcar transloading, cleaning, and repair facilities.

A short barge trip from Bayport and Barbours Cut Container Terminals, the industrial park has an existing barge dock along Cedar Bayou, on the western boundary of the park with a draft depth of 12’. The dock is currently being used by tenants within the park, but excess capacity remains. An additional barge dock for the industrial park has been permitted and will be constructed adjacent to the existing dock. TGS Cedar Port is willing to identify and fund marine and terminaling infrastructure (dock, pipeline, tanks) as requested.

The park boasts a combination of more than 15 million sq. ft. of existing rail-served facilities and industrial and manufacturing warehouses. Cedar Port offers rail-served, ecommerce and retail distribution users, and manufacturers unmatched resources for the future of industrial logistics and development. Available incentives include tax abatements, workforce training funds, Foreign Trade Zone designation, and financing for infrastructure development and site improvements.

Sites are typically delivered turn-key, net of detention, and outside of 500-year flood plain. Other improvements typically include heavy-haul road, potable water, and sanitary sewer. Multiple telecommunications services are available, and industrial sized electrical is located throughout the Park.

Five roads have access into the industrial park, including the new master-planned highway, Cedar Port Parkway. Cedar Port Parkway is currently under construction and will be TxDOT-approved and heavy haul-rated. Heavy haul corridor within the park allows permitted vehicles to transport overweight commodities from the Port more efficiently.

Cedar Port Industrial Park has a plethora of industrial pipeline infrastructure running throughout the park. The abundance of pipelines and the commodities (crude, ethane, ethylene, and refined products) running throughout the park. The abundance of pipelines and thecommodities (crude, ethane, ethylene, and refined products) running through the park represent a unique advantage to existing and future tenants for use of transporting feedstock or finished goods. The park controls all rights of way with the exception of TxDOT crossings.

TGS Cedar Port is being marketed by John Simons, Joel Michael, and Holden Rushing of NAI Partners, the 5th-largest commercial real estate services firm in Houston, and the largest and only independently-owned brokerage in the top five.
