Ballast Point Brewing Inks 107,000-SF Lease with HG Fenton in Miramar
- Nov 29, 2013
As metropolitan San Diego’s residential picture improves, the industrial market is also attracting renewed activity. Ballast Point Brewing and Spirits, a local craft brewer, signed a 15-year lease for 106,584 square feet at 9045 Carroll Way in the Miramar submarket. At $16 million, the value of the deal is one of the largest of its kind in the area this year.
Ballast Point will use the space as its main brewery, bottling and canning facility and plans to start production there by next summer. Voit Real Estate arranged the deal for Ballast Point and HG Fenton, the property’s owner.
San Diego’s industrial market appears positioned for growth through 2014, according to research by CBRE Group Inc.
Current average prices of about $12.60 per square foot could rise to nearly $13 per square foot by the third quarter of 2014. During the next 12 months, the vacancy rate could dip 70 basis points from its current average of slightly more than 8 percent, according to CBRE’s projections.
