Stafford Logistics Park will comprise two Class A industrial buildings—a 520,000-square-foot cross-dock warehouse and a 265,000-square-foot front-load facility. The buildings are set to feature 36- and 32-foot clear heights, 90 trailer stalls, 190 trailer parking spaces and 380 auto parking spaces.

The property will take shape on some 38 acres in the Greater Southwest Houston submarket, at 13650 Pike Road. The development’s location near Route 90 and Interstate 69 provides easy access across the Houston metropolitan area.

Southwestern industrial markets take the lead

Stafford Logistics Park marks the company’s ninth industrial development in Greater Houston. Benefiting from its strategic Gulf Coast location, Houston ranked second for industrial deliveries in the first half of 2023, according to CommercialEdge research.

The metro added 11.3 million square feet of industrial space in the first six months of last year, which accounted for 4.3 percent of total stock. As of January this year, Houston had 9.5 million square feet underway, the same source shows.

Lovett developed the largest industrial property that came online in Greater Houston in 2023—a 908,853-square-foot asset within the Interchange 249 industrial park in Tomball, Texas.

Dallas-Fort Worth ranked first on the same list. The metro had 69 properties come online in 2023’s first half, adding 29.3 million square feet to its inventory. At the end of last year, Lovett and Rosewood Property Co. acquired a 12.2-acre site for the development of a two-building industrial facility in Addison, Texas, a Dallas suburb.
