Rockefeller Group acquired approximately 30 acres for the two projects in September 2020. The second development, a 289,556-square-foot speculative distribution building called Val Verde Logistics Center, was recently completed and is being marketed for lease or sale. Herdman Architecture + Design designed the projects. RM Dalton was the general contractor.

At the start of this year, Rockefeller sold two recently completed industrial buildings with approximately 500,000 square feet for $80.75 million. For those properties, Haralambos Leasing Company acquired the Fontana Santa Ana Industrial Center, a 297,161-square-foot distribution center, for $54 million. And Lone Oak – Moreno Valley LLC acquired Centerpointe Commerce Center, a 203,944-square-foot distribution center, for $26.75 million.

Southern California’s industrial market has maneuvered swimmingly through the pandemic with e-commerce sales growth, more online consumers, and global supply chain necessities. Earlier this week, CO reported CenterPoint Properties acquired a Class A industrial property with just 173,134 square feet in Pico Rivera, Calif., for $63 million. And, at the start of the month, CO reported Cambro Manufacturing signed a 433,865-square-foot lease at the Huntington Gateway Business Park.
