Niagara Bottling to Build 356 KSF Facility in Lakeview Business Park
- Sep 29, 2012
Niagara Bottling will soon be headed to the Houston area, as the bottling company recently purchased a 25.7-acre site in Trammell Crow Co.’s Lakeview Business Park in Missouri City, Texas.
Niagara Bottling L.L.C.—the largest family-owned and second-largest bottled water company in the United States—plans to build a new 356,000-square-foot water bottling plant on the property. The new facility will house water processing, bottle manufacturing, warehousing and a distribution facility. According to a release, initial construction will include two bottling lines.
In accordance with most of the existing Niagara bottling plants, the development will incorporate vertical integration, which means everything from the manufacturing of the cap and bottle to the actual process of bottling the water will occur within the plant.
“Niagara Bottling’s new plant will be the largest building in the Lakeview Business Park to date,” said Jim Casey, senior managing director of Trammell Crow’s Houston business unit. “In conjunction with the land sale to Niagara Bottling, we will be completing the remaining streets and drainage infrastructure for the business park, under the oversight of Sean Nolan, TCC vice president of development management.”
According to Bob Graf, economic development coordinator of Missouri City, Niagara’s move will create 98 new jobs within the first year of operation. Over the next 10 years, the company will generate more than $65 million in new taxable value and $8.6 million in Houston-area vendor purchases.
Lakeview Business Park is a 157-acre development of Trammell Crow Co. and affiliates of Crow Holdings Realty Partners IV L.P. Lakeview offers users a master-planned business park environment with opportunities for build-to-suit facilities. The light industrial development is set in a natural environment with mature trees and neighboring lakes, conveniently located near the Sam Houston Parkway, U.S. Highway 90-A and the Fort Bend Parkway, providing easy access to the Greater Houston area.
