Panattoni Plans Tustin Development Near Rivian-Leased Facility
Panattoni Development Co. has submitted plans for an industrial facility in Tustin spanning 143,437 square feet next door to one of its latest local development projects, which is now occupied by electric vehicle manufacturer Rivian Automotive Inc.
An affiliate of the Irvine-based development firm acquired two adjoining parcels on Myford Road in separate deals last year totaling nearly $41 million, according to the Orange County Business Journal.
The two sites, at 14321 and 14351 Myford Road, currently hold a 57,330-square-foot building and an 82,000-square-foot building, respectively, which will be demolished to make way for the new project. The proposal includes a 143,437-square-foot warehouse, 5,000 square feet of mezzanine office area and 19 truck docks as well as 103 parking stalls.
Panattoni paid a total of $40.6 million for the two sites, acquiring 14351 Myford in March 2022 and 14321 Myford the following August. Both buildings date from the 1970s.
