Tomball EDC Purchases Centrally Located Land, Warehouses

TOMBALL, TEXAS (April 13, 2020) – The Tomball Economic Development Corporation (TEDC) announces the acquisition of 6.2 acres of South Live Oak Industrial Park in Tomball. The purchase includes two industrial warehouses totaling 41,076 square feet at 202 and 204 South Live Oak, located directly off Main Street near downtown Tomball.

The TEDC’s vision for the investment is to create a mixed-use development on vacant property adjacent to the warehouses. One warehouse is currently leased. TEDC will immediately begin searching for a suitable tenant for the vacant warehouse, according to TEDC Executive Director Kelly Violette.

“We are excited to add this investment to our portfolio. With its advantageous location just off Main Street, we will utilize the property in a way that will attract companies to Tomball,” added Violette. “The warehouses also allow the TEDC to promote an expanded industrial inventory, which we find to be in high demand.”
