ICSC & Retail Attraction Information
La Porte, Texas, home to the San Jacinto Monument and Battleground for Texas’ Independence, is also the center of the 2nd largest petro-chemical/refining complex in the world and gateway to the Houston Ship Channel. Technological advances in fracking and natural gas extraction, expansion of the Panama Canal, expansion of the Port of Houston’s Barbour’s Cut and Bayport Terminals, and opening of the Houston Bayport Cruise Terminal are attracting billions of new, industrial investment to La Porte.

Although La Porte is fortunate to attract so much industrial trade and investment, daytime employment, high average household incomes, and tourism, it suffers from a lack of new retail and restaurant development. La Porte epitomizes the backbone of the resurging U.S. economy. The citizens of La Porte are hard-working people with good incomes in a solid, diverse economy that is slated to grow for generations to come.
