BAYTOWN (Houston Business Journal) – Cedar Port Industrial Park, the fifth-largest industrial park in the world, will soon undergo serious infrastructure improvements under new ownership, allowing nearly 11,000 acres of development along the Houston Ship Channel.

The park was purchased by Beaumont-based Trans-Global Solutions Inc. (TGS) in December.

Walmart's largest import distribution center complex — the size of 70 football fields — is there, along with Home Depot's 755,000-sf distribution center.

Even so, much of the park is undeveloped. But TGS’s CEO William F. Scott said that’s about to change.

"There's $22 million in work we'll do that'll be completed this year," Scott said.

Those improvements include adding two 9,000-foot interchange railroad tracks on the north end of the property. The tracks will open up more than 4,000 acres around the park for development.
