Stonemont Financial Group is moving forward with the first phase of the Southwest International Gateway Business Park, a 540-acre rail-served industrial park planned in El Campo, 60 miles southwest of Houston.
The Atlanta-based developer announced plans to begin sitework on the project, which targets cross-border shippers, in the first quarter. Vitro Chemicals, a subsidiary of Mexico-based glass manufacturer Vitro, has leased a 125,000-square-foot distribution center in the project. Additionally, a 200,000-square-foot speculative warehouse will be built in the 170-acre first phase.
The industrial distribution park, which could eventually contain up to 8 million square feet, seeks to capitalize on its location along the Kansas City Southern Railway, which extends from the Pacific coast of Mexico to Illinois. The park is midway between Houston and Victoria along Interstate 69, south of County Road 421.
