Rexford Signs EV Manufacturer to Garden Grove Lease
Colliers arranged a 165,171-square-foot lease by electric vehicle manufacturer Harbinger Motors Inc. in Garden Grove. Colliers’ industrial team of Clyde Stauff and Jace Gan represented landlord Rexford Industrial, who leased the manufacturing and distribution facility at 12821 Knott Street.
Harbinger Motors will custom design electric light and medium-duty delivery vehicles to customers’ specifications. To accommodate the new tenant’s growing business needs, the building will undergo extensive upfit, including approximately 40,000 square feet of office and engineering space. Harbinger Motors was previously located in Gardena.
“This is a significant win for Orange County and the City of Garden Grove,” said Stauff. “Harbinger will employ over 160 people in technical, design, and engineering jobs, bolstering the growing market’s economy and labor pool.”
