BROOKSHIRE – Ross Stores Inc. will build its new two million-sf distribution facility about a mile south of I-10 just across from the Uplands at Twinwood Business Park in southern Waller County.
The distribution center will make Ross the county’s largest employer, bringing 1,300 full-time jobs to the area.
The Waller County Economic Development Partnership agreed to a 40 percent tax reduction on the new building and a 20 percent tax reduction on the center’s equipment.
The Waller County Road Improvement District agreed to provide assistance in expanding the roads leading into and out of the site of the new distribution center.
The deal includes a road reimbursement agreement with Ross that will allow the final leg of Kingsland Blvd. to be completed between Jordan Ranch Rd. and Woods Rd.
Road expansions will also widen Woods Rd. from two lanes to five lanes and Kingsland Rd. from two lanes to four lanes.
The distribution center will open in 2021.
