Port of Houston Authority is celebrating the delivery
of the Bayport Container and Cruise Terminal, located
in the city of Pasadena,Texas.
Built to meet marketplace demand, the $1.4 billion Bayport
complex is designed to be the premier container terminal
on the United States Gulf Coast. It is a state-of-the-art
industry cornerstone of a city which has gained worldwide
recognition as a center for vital industrial commerce.
When fully developed, the terminal will have a total
of seven container berths with the capacity to handle
2.3 million TEUs on a complex which includes 376 acres
of container yard and a 123-acre intermodel facility.
The cruise terminal complex will have three berths to
accommodate as many as 1.7 million passengers with parking
capacity for 3,000 cars. The cruise terminal will also
have more than 40 acres of onsite co-development available.
Bayport was conceived to provide economic
stimulus with a commitment to environmental stewardship.
The terminal’s environmental benefi ts include
the preservation of 956 acres of diverse coastal habitat,
200 acres of new marsh, 173 acres of wetlands created
or enhanced, and the preservation of a 128-acre buffer
zone. The facility will generate more than 32,000 jobs,
and add approximately $1.6 billion to the Texas economy
through wages and tax revenues.
