HOUSTON (Ewing Construction) – Construction has begun on La Porte Terminals 5 and 6 for La Porte Terminal LP, a subsidiary of global manufacturing and logistics firm Katoen Natie. The project, with construction value of about $17 million, is on Port Houston with access from SH 225. The approximately 450,000-sf facility is scheduled to be completed this December. Once complete, Katoen Natie will use the facility for manufacturing, storing and shipping light polymer products.
