An event marking the ground breaking of a new industrial park in El Campo, Texas, was held June 19, despite heavy rains forcing the event inside.
Stonemont Financial Group, Ridgeline Property Group, Kansas City Southern and NAI Partners participated in the groundbreaking of the SW International Gateway Business Park. The $125-million, 540-acre industrial park will offer frontage to the US 59/I-69 NAFTA Superhighway and will provide access, visibility and rail service to and from Mexico via Kansas City Southern.
“The SW International Gateway Business Park represents a strategic opportunity for businesses that ship goods between the United States and Mexico,” said Zack Markwell, CEO and managing principal of Stonemont Financial Group. “This development will allow the transportation of goods to occur more efficiently. We are proud to help make this important facility a reality.”
At capacity, the park will be able to accommodate up to 10,000,000 square feet of Class A warehouse, manufacturing and rail-served distribution facilities. Other key features of the master-planned multi-modal distribution park include a staging area for more than 200 rail cars and an on-site centralized transload station for items crossing the U.S./Mexico border.
