Vigavi Breaks Ground on New Build-to-Suit Project in Baytown, Texas

Tidal Tank announces new 31,200-square-foot regional center

HOUSTON, March 23, 2016 – Vigavi Realty and JLL today announced the firm has negotiated a 31,200-square-foot industrial lease at a new industrial build-to-suit project in Thompson Ten Business Park, located at 6503 Thompson Road in Baytown, Texas.  Tidal Tank, a Houston-based petro-chem and refining transportation rental provider, will reduce its footprint and consolidate three other area locations into the new regional center.

Yesterday Vigavi Realty broke ground on the 14-acre site.  It’s slated for completion by year end.

JLL’s Senior Vice President Richard Quarles negotiated the terms on behalf of the landlord, Vigavi Realty. Jason G. Whittington, a Partner at NAI Partners, represented the tenant, Tidal Tank, in the transaction.  Architect Terry Kennedy and Vigavi Realty will lead the project construction.

“Our site is a great fit for Tidal Tank’s current strategic objectives and projected business needs,” said Vigavi Realty Managing Principal Luis Villarreal. “Key elements to the success of this project were location, site configuration and a turnkey delivery.”

Tidal Tank’s future location is situated within Houston’s southeast submarket, approximately 18 miles east of Houston’s Central Business District. The southeast submarket encompasses more than 71 million square feet of Houston’s industrial inventory and posted nearly three million square feet of positive net absorption in 2015.
