New H-E-B Store

HEB has purchased the old KMart property at the intersection of SH146 and Palmer Highway including the Exxon Station and the small strip center that contains CiCi's Pizza. They have committed to demolition of the old KMart and the Exxon Station and placing a full-service HEB store of at least 55,000 sf, similar to the store with the same services located at FM 646 and Interstate 45 in League City, but slightly smaller in scale. In addition, they will construct a new service station with the HEB brand name and re-do the existing strip center to match the new decor of the HEB structures.  Signage will be re-done and limited, landscaping will be improved as well as the layout of parking greatly enhancing the appearance and attractiveness of the location. HEB will close both the gas station and the HEB pantry store on Palmer near 21st Street once the new store is operational. 

The store is expected to be open by the fall of 2015, but the agreement guarantees it to be open by Dec. 31st, 2015.  Construction should commence this spring.

 Methanol Plant on Shoal Point

In August 2014, the Texas City Commissioners ratified a lease signed with Fund Connell USA Energy and Chemical Investment Corporation. This two year lease will provide the time needed to conduct feasibility studies for a proposed methanol plant on Shoal Point. Shoal Point is approximately 1,000 acres adjacent to the Texas City Ship Channel, which includes State land with corresponding signed agreements. If successful, the first phase of the plant will occupy approximately 200 acres with a value of around $2.5 billion, and provide at least 200 permanent jobs and numerous other construction-related jobs. A potential second phase would increase the total value to $4.5 billion, resulting in one of the largest methanol plants in the world.
