Drive Time Analysis

Case Study


Our firm was approached by a distribution company to consult, locate, and negotiate the lease at their next location.  The company had experienced great expansion but sought to reduce transportation costs and times.  They needed a better way to serve their customers in the outer reaches of west Houston.


We developed a multi-pronged analysis and used computerized modeling to generate multiple possible locations for their expansion, keeping in mind their existing customer base and potential future customer base.


Our search parameters were:


  • Maximum 45 minute trucking time
  • Average trucking departure at 12 PM on weekdays
  • Coverage to Hempstead, Katy, Rosenberg, and central Houston
  • Minimize redundancy if possible


The map to the left was used to pinpoint the location of the company's new base for west Houston operations.  We then negotiated the lease on behalf of the company.

Market Analysis

While used most commonly in development, a market analysis can be a helpful tool in multiple disciplines.  Our lease market comparison (pictured right), as prepared for this particular client, compared the retail and industrial markets.  The developer wanted to ensure that he would receive the best rate of return possible based on market trends and rental rates.  To make sure the market would not have too much inventory by the time construction was finished, our analysis also covered buildings under construction, and even buildings not yet being built.


Our market view goes beyond "comps".  We analyze construction trends, occupancy trends, demographic trends, and rental trends.


In addition to rental-based trends, we analyze market behavior preferences on both tenant and landlord sides.  These preferences include rental versus purchase, single tenant versus multi-tenant preferences, and stand-alone versus mixed development.

Location Analysis

When considering locations, special attention is a necessity to avoid costly errors or potential pitfalls.  While the City of Houston is not governed by zoning laws, most of the incorporated suburbs do have laws that govern property usage, road usage, and industrial noise.


Our client-specific analysis of LaPorte (at left) indicates many of these governances specific to the city.  With 35 million tons of cargo coming through the port per year, you can easily see why these regulations are a necessity.


Our specific analysis in this case examined zoning ordinances, trucking ordinances, and future development zones.
