Full Public Notice     Project Plans   

The applicant proposes to place approximately 7,341 cubic yards of soil and concrete fill in 8.91 acres of freshwater wetlands            (Scrub-Shrub wetland = 0.30 acre; Forested wetland = 7.20 acres; Emergent wetland = 1.41 acres) and 0.19 acre of freshwater apparent man-made drainage ditches within the project site, totaling 9.10 acres of waters of the U.S., to construct a commercial warehouse/distribution and manufacturing project to serve the shipping industry.  The proposed finished grade is +18 feet Mean Sea Level.  The facilities would include a 175,135-square-foot facility, and a 450,000-square-foot plastics packaging facility.  The project would have close proximity to the Port of Houston Bayport Container Terminal, direct rail service, and the ability to create a new heavy-haul corridor for truck traffic from the facilities to the Bayport Container Terminal in-gate.  The industrial development project would offer immediate access to a new heavy-weight, private road between the site and the Bayport Container Terminal in-gate.  The applicant has stated the project would not add flow to Pine Gully, and the developer is required to detain water/run-off so the net impact to Pine Gully is no change.
