A Multi-Purpose Facility for the Future
The La Quinta Trade Gateway Terminal is a major component of Port Corpus Christi’s long-term development plan. Located on a 1,100-acre greenfield site on the north side of Corpus Christi Bay. This fully permitted project will provide a state-of-the-art multi-purpose dock and container facility once complete.
Project features consist of:
- The Federal extension of the 45’ deep La Quinta Ship Channel
- Construction of a 3800’ long, three (3) berth ship dock with nine ship-to-shore cranes
- 180 acres of container/cargo storage yard
- intermodal rail yard
- over 400 acres on-site distribution and warehouse centers
The La Quinta Trade Gateway Terminal is adjacent to US 181/IH 37 and currently served by on-site rail road with the Class 1 main line located 1.5 miles away.
In 2004 the Project retained its first tenant, Gulf Compress, which constructed a 30 acre cotton storage facility containing 550,000 square foot of warehousing, with an option to double its size. Approximately 6,000+ TEUs of cotton are historically exported per year from the warehouse complex, principally to Asia and Mexico.
