Chino and San Bernardino Take Leasing Center Stage

Three industrial leases totaling more than 200,000 square feet were recently inked in the Inland Empire. The first transaction was a 136,200-square-foot lease at Chino Industrial Center Building 8 located at 14522 Yorba Ave. in Chino.

The property was pre-leased to Sunset Pacific Transportation, a California consolidator that ships nationwide. The building is estimated to be completed before lease commencement on March 1, 2022.

Newmark’s Ron Washle and Mark Kegans represented the tenant. The landlord, Prologis, was represented by an outside firm.

The property is comprised of a freestanding building that features 3,671 square feet of office space, 3,034 square feet of mezzanine, 21 dock-high loading doors, two ground-level loading doors, 32-foot clear height, 2,000 amps, 11 trailer stalls and a secured yard.

“Sunset Pacific wanted to relocate from its smaller location but stay in Chino. This facility is the perfect fit and is one of the only available buildings ranging from 100,000 to 150,000 square feet in the city,” said Ron Washle. “The industrial market is extremely robust, with vacancy rates at all-time lows and rental rates at all-time highs.”

The second and third transactions include pre-leases at Lankershim Industrial Center, a 73,073-square-foot warehouse located at 2449 E. 5th St. in San Bernardino. Dean Washle represented the El Monte-based landlord, a partnership between Lankershim Industrial LP and developers Michael P. Nijjar and Ryan Liu. The property includes two units: unit 101 was pre-leased to Cargo Link Logistics and unit 102 was pre-leased to HSL Worldwide Lighting Corporation. Each unit features an office area, dock-high and ground-level loading doors, a secured yard, 400 amps and 30-foot clear heights.
