VICTORVILLE, Calif., Oct. 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — An affiliate of Covington Group, Inc., a privately-held commercial real estate company focused on industrial investment and development in select U.S. markets, along with an institutional capital partner, recently acquired seven buildings totaling nearly 3.4 million square feet of space at Southern California Logistics Centre (“SCLC”), located in the Inland Empire North submarket.
This acquisition represents the single largest acquisition to date of industrial buildings in the Inland Empire North submarket. SCLC is located on the site of the former George Air Force Base in Victorville, California. SCLC is the result of an over 20-year effort by the City of Victorville to redevelop and reimagine the former Air Force Base as a fully-integrated multimodal transportation hub generating jobs and commerce for the entire region.
All of the buildings acquired are Class “A” quality, featuring up to 32′ clear height, concrete-tilt construction, large functional truck courts and an abundance of trailer parking. The buildings were constructed between 2008 and 2017. The acquisition boasts several national tenants such as Newell Brands, M&M Mars, Boeing, and Plastipak Packaging, with some occupying multiple spaces within the portfolio.
“Utilizing our tenant-centric approach to property management, Covington’s focus will be to continue to develop and strengthen relationships with these tenants, both large and small, in order to accommodate renewals and expansions as the needs arise going forward” stated Ken Sheer, CEO and Founding Partner of Covington. Furthermore, Mr. Sheer emphasized “We feel that this portfolio of buildings at SCLC, and the Inland Empire North submarket in general, is uniquely positioned to address the overflow of demand seen from tenants coming from the Los Angeles basin in search of more affordable space that still meets their specific requirements.”
