Port Freeport will have a new administration building set to be completed by early 2016. The new three-story, 20,000 sq. ft. administration building will be located at the corner of Cherry Street and State Highway 288 in Freeport, Texas. The entire facility is a tilt-wall panel building that will complement the recently completed Emergency Operations Center located near the main entry gate to Port Freeport. 
 
Chief Financial Officer Jeff Strader said, “No debt will incur with the constructing and furnishing of the facility, but will funded instead through a combination of current operating cash flow and investment holdings.”
 
The first floor will consist of the board room, board support spaces and associated public meeting accommodations. The second floor includes office space for accounting, engineering departments and other support functions. The third floor includes offices for executive staff, business development and additional Commission and legal office space as well as an area for future expansion.
 
The overall site design will accommodate pedestrian and vehicular traffic, public and emergency vehicle access, and areas for future development. The facility is positioned on the site to allow for the majority of office space to have direct views of Port Freeport property including the newly installed cranes and lay down areas.
