Oil, logistics and retail sectors driving growth in Baytown

The Houston metro's fourth largest city is a driving force behind the area's construction sector
  • For a city of roughly 80,000 Baytown has a significant volume of construction underway.
  • One multifamily developer recently backed away from a large mixed-use project in Baytown.
  • Most of the projects completed in Baytown during the next two years will be delivered in 2017.

The Houston submarket of Baytown is expected to see the completion of roughly $30 billion of construction projects in the next two years, with a number of sectors playing their part.

However, construction activity within the oil and petrochemical sector is a major reason for the area’s construction boom.
