While it may be just a parking lot…there’s no reason it can’t be something nice to look at.

Construction was recently completed on a new parking lot for employees of the Stanpac packaging facility on North Mangrum in Brenham.

StanPac parking lot

The new parking lot at Stanpac is surrounded by flowers and plants.

The company purchased the old dirt lot across from the former Brenham Police Department on Chappell Hill Street.

The project included not only black topping the lot but also landscaping and improving the aesthetics of the immediate area.

Stanpac manager for warehousing, logistics and construction, John Alexander says this was a concerted effort to make this more than just a typical parking lot…

Alexander says this is not the only project to help make Stanpac part of the community…

Stanpac is a dairy packaging specialist that located its Dallas operation to Brenham in 2010.

Officials say the move was made to strengthen its partnership with Blue Bell Creameries.
