The Operation

The Operation, Juarez, MX

Available Space

A few, southeastern industrial parks serve Cd. Juarez, with adequate available space in each. The newer parks were far from the worker living areas, which could have contributed to a higher turnover rate than in communities of comparable size. However, with the industrial development, there is massive residential development accompanying it. Commercial development is being built to support the new industrial and surrounding residential areas. Additionally, new industrial land to the southeast of the city, in an area referred to as "Nuevo Juarez," is available on a build-to-suit basis that would be accessible to new labor sources in the region.

A current survey of industrial park in Cd. Juarez, with a variety of site options, reveals the following average USD prices:

Industrial Land Purchase Price

$4.50- $5.50 sq. ft.

New Construction or Build-to-Suit Costs

$36.00 sq. ft.

Lease Rates for Existing Industrial Space (5 yrs)

$4.80- $5.25 sq. ft.

Refurbish, or Rebuild-to-Suit Costs

$20.00 sq. ft.


Industrial parks on both sides of the river possess water, electricity and gas at reasonable prices. Transportation costs are generally low due to availability of most carriers.


U.S. Customs operates two sophisticated facilities at the Bridge of the Americas, (BOTA), and the newer Zaragosa Bridge. Waiting times can be one hour on the BOTA, and a lot longer for trucks. Passage can be quicker across the Zaragos Port of Entry. The heavy traffic can create delays of several hours during peak operations. 24-hour crossing do alleviate a significant portion of the delays. The Santa Teresa Port of Entry is accessed through Route #2 (The Casas Grandes Highway), and businesses should give serious consideration to using this crossing, because crossing times are minimal.

To facilitate the ease in crossing for regular commuters, US Customs has established a dedicated commuter lane at the Stanton Street Bridge. Crossing times are normally 5 minutes. This program has been so successful that US Customs is working toward establishing a dedicated commuter lane for trucks.
