Birtcher Oak Valley Commerce Center to Target Big-Box Tenants

Birtcher Oak Valley Commerce Center, a 125-acre industrial development in Calimesa in the Inland Empire East, recently broke ground with the aim of targeting big-box tenants with warehousing and distribution needs. The commerce center will consist of four class-A industrial buildings and is strategically located immediately adjacent to the I-10 freeway.

At a total of 2.2 million square feet, the buildings are designed to meet current high demand for logistics facilities throughout Southern California, and will offer 40-foot clear heights, flat floors and a minimum of 185-foot truck courts. Located at Singleton and Roberts roads in Calimesa, the site provides an opportunity to meet autonomous trucking needs with freeway access onto its campus, offering transportation firms the ability to shift to cabs with drivers for urban deliveries.

“We are bullish on the growth in the Oak Valley I-10 Corridor, given its strategic location just beyond Redlands and deep untapped labor market. Birtcher Oak Valley Commerce Center is strongly positioned to serve the fast-growing and equally underserved tenant demand,” said Brooke Birtcher Gustafson, managing director, Birtcher Development. “This unique 125-acre campus opportunity is anticipated to draw long-term corporate credit tenants that will considerably benefit the city and community of Calimesa.”
