HOUSTON - Houston’s City Council approved a $5 million tax break to help UPS expand a distribution center in north Houston.

The company plans to invest $143 million in land, construction and equipment to build a new 400,000–500,000-sf warehouse on a 68-acre site at 11802 North Gessner, retaining 2,535 jobs and creating 575 new jobs.

UPS told City officials it was considering other sites for the expansion, including Conroe and Tomball.

City documents attached to the agenda item say Harris County also is considering supporting the project because the competing sites are in Montgomery County.

City economic development official Gwen Tillotson said the jobs associated with the expansion range from $11-per-hour sorter jobs up to $175,000 salaried management jobs.
