Aiming at becoming more efficient and better serving customers, a move to Missouri City’s Lakeview Business Park is being seen as an opportunity on the part of a company that recognizes it will also help contribute to the city’s growth. The news release from the Trammel Crow Company, which developed the business park, said the Allied Group purchased a 152,800 sf facility and 31 acres of land in what represents the third building sale at the 157-acre business park, according to Senior Managing Director Jim Casey.
Lakeview Business Park in Missouri City will now be the headquarters and distribution center for Allied Group’s subsidiary, Warren Alloy Valve & Fitting, Co., LP. At this site the headquarters will be the distributor of stainless and other specialty metal pipes, valves, and fittings. The building site is on the 14600 block of Fairway Pines Drive.
It is located with access to major thoroughfares, and Lakeview Business Park is also near the Sam Houston Parkway at the site of the former Willowisp Country Club and golf course. In this area, the business park kept the mature trees that were already on the property when it underwent development in 2008, and it has lakes in the neighboring area, where many ducks were seen headed crossing the road away from the developing site.
Lakeview Business Park, which is also conveniently located near U.S. 90A and the Fort Bend Parkway, still has land to be had, and sites for building construction. Look for more developing activity on this part of the city near Houston and Stafford. It will help add to the city’s tax base.
