Costco Looks for Distribution Space in Houston, Texas


HOUSTON, TX
Monday, October 8th, 2018

Costco is reportedly vying for some major Texas real estate. The wholesaler is looking to step into a distribution space of up to one million square feet in the west and northwest Houston area, according to the Houston Business Journal, which could mean investing in enough land to do so. About 80 acres could accommodate Costco’s development.

Pintail Crossing Business Park, a 150-acre land parcel that is being transformed into an industrial park focused on distribution tenants by Houston-based Hines, is currently up for consideration. This park, specifically, sits at the northwest corner of Interstate 10 and Igloo Road and is nestled between Seattle-based Amazon’s one million-square-foot distribution center and Igloo Product Corp.’s headquarters and distribution center, the news source relays.

On behalf of Hines, Boyd Commercial leases the park, but both companies didn’t provide a comment, the news source explains. Further, Costco, the Greater Houston Partnership, and the Katy Economic Development Council also declined to comment. GHP and Katy EDC assist with longterm hiring when companies look for deals of this magnitude.

News of the company's plans comes just days after Costco announced the details of its fourth quarter fiscal results. Despite beating estimates, the company's stock faltered on news of potentially slowing e-commerce growth and a reporting anomaly (as reported by our sister publication AndNowUKnow).

Costco’s Houston-area retail locations have been appraised at $46.8 million and sit at Katy, Humble, North Gessner, and, soon, Cypress. Will a distribution space of this size signal that a wave of Costco is heading toward Houston? And, if so, how will this impact the local retail landscape? Deli Market News will keep you updated with the latest industry happenings.
