STAFFORD, TX-Houston-based Holt Lunsford Commercial Inc. has been tapped to fill the recently-completed, five-building Freeport Ninety Business Park. Avera Cos. and Cobalt Capital Partners LP developed the 349,117-square-foot industrial complex at a cost of nearly $25 million.

Now the goal is to get the complex leased up, says Holt Lunsford partner Edward Bane. Bane, who is heading up the property’s leasing efforts, tells GlobeSt.com that the targeted tenant base for this project at US Hwy. 90A and Promenade Boulevard consists of warehouse and distribution users, particularly those users who want their own free-standing buildings.

“One of the things we’re seeing that’s changed in the past five to seven years is that a lot of companies in the greater Houston area want to own their own buildings,” Bane explains. “They’re either buying or building.” But with capital restraints on both acquisition and construction these days, companies are turning to leasing their own facilities, he adds.

The Freeport 90 buildings range in size from 15,000 square feet to 130,000 square feet. Bane says the quoted lease rate is $4.80 per square foot, net. Even better news is that the Freeport Tax Exemption is available for qualifying inventories and goods in transit. Also, “given the project is located in Stafford, there is no ad valorum tax,” Bane comments.
