Corpus Christi: 100,000-SF warehouse sold, sailing southCorpus Christi: 100,000-SF warehouse sold, sailing southhttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=18392015-01-30T14:11:00Z2015-01-30T08:00:00Z

CORPUS CHRISTI - The Port of Corpus Christi's aging refrigeration warehouse has been sold and is moving south. Way south!

The seven-member port commission voted unanimously Tuesday to accept a bid by Colombia’s Port of Santa Marta to buy the building and equipment for $410,000.

Port Santa Marta, located in northern Colombia along the Caribbean Sea, wants to dismantle the 100,000-sf facility and ship it to Colombia, where it will be reassembled to support operations there.

The two ports signed a memorandum in March to promote international trade with one another as well as cooperate in technical and commercial matters that benefit both agencies.

Port staff called for disassembly work to take no more than six months, but Michael D. Smith, the McAllen contractor hired by Port Santa Marta, told commissioners his crews could finish the job in 90 days.
