With strong growth throughout the state of Texas, Commerce opened a Laredo, TX office in 2016 to support development of Majestic’s 2000-acre Port Grande project located on the north side of town just east of the Unitec Industrial Park. Since the opening of the new office, Commerce has been working through the design and construction of Phase 1 of this massive, game-changing project. The first phase consists of the construction of Building #1, as well as the mass grading of approximately 100 acres which has created building pads for Buildings #1, 2, 5 and 6, mass grading for Lots 1, 2, 3 and 4, and the construction of two roads, Carriers Drive and Uniroyal Drive, accessing the site.
At 366,000 square foot, Building #1 is a 28-foot clear, tilt-up concrete, cross-dock building with a standing seam metal roof. The project included the construction of a 300,000-gallon water tank and fire pump house to supply Port Grande’s private pressurized fire protection system. Tenant improvements are underway for Yazaki North America, who will be occupying the northern portion of the building when they take occupancy in late summer.
