Alex Air Conditioning was founded in 1969 by T.B. “Alex” Alexander. He had been a part of the Iron Union and was able to work on various projects that familiarized him with central air units. He saw that air conditioning was here to stay and decided it was a good business opportunity. He rented a desk at an existing company on Cedar Drive in La Marque and went to work. The business took off as the units grew in popularity causing a move to a larger office in 1980, were it resides today. During this period of growth, Alex was also teaching his son Troy the ropes of the business. Troy and his wife Kathy took over the business in 2005 and have continued to grow by adhering to the principles of hard work, superior products and great service. The third general of the Alexander family, Troy and Kathy’s son Chase, has joined the business over the last several years and is poised to take the wheel, continuing the tradition of excellence that Alex’s Air Conditioning, Inc. has been offering for nearly 50 years.

Laqo Mar's 12-acre crystal clear laqoon...More details are emerging about the 70-acre mixed-use entertainment destination planned for Lago Mar. It's apparent the development will significantly increase the number of restaurants in Texas City. They will have two entries at Exit 16/HolIand Road and at Lago Mar Boulevard. A large part of the lagoon is designed for residents and framed by private white-sand beaches and a clubhouse, officials with Land Tejas. The other part of the lagoon is being designed for public access and will have several beaches, a floating obstacle course, a swim-up area, a 10,000 square foot beach club with cabana pool and a Treasure Island complex with a two-story building that can accommodate corporate and other events. Tortuga Beach, on the public side, will be the largest beach on the lagoon and will accommodate about 2,000 people a day, officials said. The Breezeway Boardwalk, also on the public side, could have as many as 30 restaurants and entertainment destinations.
