​​​​HOUSTON – ​Locally based Avera Cos. has acquired 41.7 acres at the entrance of the Houston Ship Channel.

Called HMS 850, the property is near the San Jacinto Battleground state historic site and both Barbour​s Cut and Bayport container terminals. 

The site’s existing permits create four distinct lease areas: barge terminal and fleeting area, dredge material placement area, potential reclaimed land, and future fuel and terminal distribution facility.

Kirby Inland Marine, a division of Kirby Corp., will be the first tenant at HMS 850, using an area approximately 700 by 2,000 feet to provide mooring for 76 barges.
