Rockefeller Group Begins Construction on 135,623 SF Distribution Center in Otay Mesa, Calif.
– Building Designed to Meet Market Demand for Distribution and Truck Trailer Parking Expected for Completion in Mid-2021
IRVINE, Calif. – Dec. 1, 2020- Rockefeller Group has begun construction on Airway Industrial Park, a 135,623 square foot distribution center situated on a 7.81-acre site in Otay Mesa, Calif. Rockefeller Group purchased the site in March 2020 and when complete, the building will be the company’s first development in the South San Diego industrial market.
“The South San Diego/Otay Mesa submarket has become a vibrant location for distribution and e-commerce firms to establish a foothold within the region,” said Marc Berg, Vice President and Regional Director for Rockefeller Group’s West Region “Since we announced the project in March, we’ve been contacted by a number of users who are excited to see a new, recognized name breaking ground in the region.”
Working closely with architectural firm Ware Malcomb, Rockefeller Group designed a building that was unique to Otay Mesa’s specific market demands.
“The key differentiator of our building is definitely in its design, which incorporates much more truck and trailer parking than most of the existing product in the market,” said Michael Sajjadi, Vice President, Design & Construction. “Even though the building is in the smaller to medium size range, we were able to incorporate ample parking by designing a 185 foot concrete truck yard with 23 truck trailer stalls without sacrificing functionality of the building.”
The building also includes 137 auto parking spaces which will provide for a significant workforce.
Completion of Airway Industrial Park is expected in June 2021.
Rich Kwasny and Bob Mooney of Colliers International represent Rockefeller Group for the marketing of the project, which will be available for lease or sale. The general contractor is Dempsey Construction.
