The LA Deal Sheet
With demand for Class-A industrial products in the greater Los Angeles region higher than ever, Long Beach-based Pacific Industrial broke ground on a 425K SF industrial campus in Long Beach.
Sitting on 20 acres, Pacific Edge at 2300 Redondo Ave. will consist of three buildings ranging from 100K to 200K SF. The project will feature modern and enhanced architecture, corporate offices and more than 600 parking spaces.
CBRE’s John Schumacher and Bret Quinlan are leading the marketing for the Pacific Edge project, according to a news release.
“The project is already attracting the interest of major users,” Schumacher said. “Pacific Industrial’s overarching design coupled with this irreplaceable location makes it stand out from the rest of the market.”
A former post office that closed in 2013, Pacific Industrial acquired the site from the U.S. Postal Service last year. The post office relocated nearby.
Earlier this year, a Pacific Industrial spokeswoman told the Long Beach Planning Commission that the company is looking for a research and development and manufacturing company to occupy the space.
Construction is scheduled to be completed in spring 2019.
