13 Feb 2020

A fund sponsored by CBRE Global Investors has acquired a fully leased distribution facility located at 945 South Sunnyside Avenue in San Bernardino, California. The industrial property spans 143,327 square feet and is within California’s Inland Empire, which provides convenient access to transportation, consumers and labor. The last-mile facility is leased to FedEx.

The facility, known as Gateway South Building 5, features a state-of-the art design, including 32-foot clear heights, 48 x 60-foot column spacing, LED lighting and ESFR sprinkler system.

“California’s Inland Empire is a strong U.S. industrial market where we expect to see more consumer demand for shorter delivery times. With its state-of-the-art features, we expect that Gateway South Building 5 is well-equipped to meet those demands,” said Gardner Ellner, Senior Director of Commercial Acquisitions for CBRE Global Investors.

Kim Hourihan, a portfolio manager for CBRE Global Investors, continued, “As the Inland Empire submarket’s availability rate continues to tighten, we expect that we will also see an increase in demand for this type of high-end, coveted last-mile logistics space.”

Gateway South Building 5 features convenient access to I-10, connecting it to the main traffic arteries in the metro area. The property is also is within 20 minutes of two international airports, the Ontario International Airport and the San Bernardino International Airport, with the latter located just two miles from the site.
