Pacific Industrial Breaks Ground on Sierra Pacific Center in Fontana
The 744,032 SF logistic center is already attracting the interest of major distributors
FONTANA, Calif. – July 31, 2014 – Pacific Industrial, a Long Beach -based investment firm that focuses on the development and acquisition of industrial real estate, has announced it has broken ground on the Sierra Pacific Center, a 744,032-square-foot, Class A logistics and distribution facility in the Inland Empire West.
The project will be best-in-class and will feature oversized 100 percent concrete truck courts that are up to 430 feet deep with a clear height of 32 feet. The facility will also provide 3 percent skylight coverage and drought tolerant landscaping. With LEED certification in progress, Sierra Pacific Center is being built to accommodate a wide variety of users.
“It’s important to understand the changing dynamics of users in this market,” said Dan Floriani, co-founder of Pacific Industrial. “We have emphasized designing facilities that will not only provide best-in-class today, but will remain relevant 10+ years from now. Accordingly, we are providing forward-looking features that are rare in industrial projects - including EV charging stations and solar ready roofs. This will benefit users in the long term.”
In addition, Pacific Industrial has designed a high image two-story glass tower entrance and open lobby floor plan.
Said Floriani: “We are firm believers that tenants are not just looking at warehouse functionality, but also want to occupy facilities that create great working environments for their employees with office-oriented features, aesthetics and nearby retail amenities.”
Strategically located in the Inland Empire West, the Sierra Pacific Center benefits from excellent access to the 15 and 210 Freeways with full diamond interchanges and a growing list of corporate neighbors.
Paul Earnhart, one of the founding principals of Lee & Associates Ontario, will be the exclusive leasing agent for Sierra Pacific Center.
“This is one of the premier facilities in the Inland Empire West. The location has already attracted the attention of top tier businesses such as Target, Nordstrom, Under Armor, Black & Decker and OHL to name a few. With its location near one of the Southland’s most important freeways, the 210, Sierra Pacific Center is not only a state-of-the-art logistic center, but will also provide a tremendous logistical advantage to the future occupants.”
Sierra Pacific Center is expected to be completed by the first quarter 2015.
