Two commercial real estate firms/leasing brokers are marketing a 60-acre industrial property located within Watco’s Greens Port Industrial Park on the Houston (Tex.) Ship Channel.

New Jersey-based NAI James E. Hanson and NAI Partners in Houston, Austin and San Antonio, Tex., will handle the assignment for Watco, which recently selected them for all Greens Port leasing work.

Watco completed its acquisition of Greens Port in 2010, under the leadership of Executive Chairman Rick Webb. (Web was recently named one of 10 honorees in the Railway Age Readers’ Influential Leaders online poll.) In 2018, the Pittsburg, Kans.-based transportation and supply chain services company acquired the assets of Industrial Terminals, L.P., adjacent to Greens Port.

The 735-acre Greens Port offers more than 3 million square feet of warehouse space, storage for 1,600 railcars across four rail yards, and seven deep water and nine barge berths along the Houston Ship Channel. The multimodal industrial park can handle dimensional shipments, including wind turbine components, vessels and machinery; plastics; liquids, such as chemicals, petrochemicals, petroleum products or crude oil, refined products, and ethanol; bulk solids; and steel in all forms.

The 60-acre portion of the park now being marketed offers access to Watco’s dock infrastructure along the Houston Ship Channel and to Union Pacific, BNSF and Kansas City Southern. It is located one mile from Interstate 10 and features direct highway access to the Barbours Cut Container Terminal and the Bayport Container Terminal at Port Houston. Tenants at Greens Port can also use Watco’s on-site stevedoring, drayage and material handling services.
