SAN JOSE, CA - April 30, 2018 - CBRE announced today that Pacific Commons Industrial Center, the largest distribution building in development across the San Francisco Bay Area, has officially broken ground. The 814,852-square-foot building is located at the southwest corner of Cushing Parkway and Bunche Drive. Conor Commercial Real Estate and American Realty Advisors ("ARA") are the owners and developers. CBRE's Rob Shannon, Chip Sutherland and Doug Norton are marketing the space for lease.
"Pacific Commons Industrial Center combines the efficiency of a new, large-scale, best-in-class building with the accessibility of an in-fill location perfectly situated to meet the e-commerce and industrial fulfillment needs of Northern California," said Rob Shannon, Executive Vice President, CBRE. "Nowhere else in the Bay Area can you find a single industrial building of this size under development, not to mention one that is steps away from a complete array of retail services. It's truly a one-of-a-kind opportunity for a company looking to truncate Bay Area delivery times while lowering transportation costs."
Slated for completion in Q2 2019, the nearly 815,000-square-foot logistics and fulfillment center will feature 36-foot clear heights, cross-dock configurations, an ESFR sprinkler system, 141 dock doors, 143 trailer parking stalls and flexible office space. The building is designed to achieve LEED® Silver certification and will offer 68 electric vehicle charging stations. The building is situated on approximately 41.75 acres and is just over a mile from Interstate 880, less than three miles from Interstate 680 and three miles from the Warm Springs BART station.
"We are excited to embark on yet another in-fill development within the East Bay submarket with valued partner, American Realty Advisors," remarked John Dobrott, President - Industrial, Conor Commercial Real Estate. "The scarcity of available Class A industrial product, coupled with the locational advantages offered by Pacific Commons Industrial Center will drive the success of this notable development."
Pacific Commons Industrial Center distinguishes itself further with its unique pedestrian-friendly environment. A multi-use trail will follow the south and west edges of the property, offering access to open space. The building is also within walking distance of Pacific Commons Shopping Center and its 75 stores, restaurants and entertainment venues.
"ARA is excited to break ground on Pacific Commons, as a 'Big Space for Big Solutions.' We see this asset serving as the premier, state-of-the-art logistic facility serving a growing demand for last mile distribution and ultimately delivering strong value to our investors," added Albert Pura, Senior Director, Investment Group at ARA. "We are proud to once again work with our trusted partner, Conor Commercial Real Estate and continue our proven track record of having successfully developed and sold two East-Bay industrial projects."
Pacific Commons Industrial Center is 14 miles from San Jose International Airport, 30 miles from the Port of Oakland and 46 miles from the city of San Francisco. Upon full buildout, the Pacific Commons Business Park will be home to more than 4.4 million square feet of industrial space, making it one of the largest industrial destinations in the region.
