TCC’s SoCal—Newport Beach Business Unit is handling the development of the three-building, 72-acre project.

“We are extremely pleased to work with Washington Capital and Operating Engineers on Columbia Business Park,” Tom Bak, TCC’s SoCal—Newport Beach Business Unit’s senior managing director, said in a prepared release. “The site is strategically located in an increasingly land-constrained market. We will provide a world-class industrial product, designed for users with complex needs, such as e-commerce and logistics firms. Best-in-class is our goal when it comes to design and project execution.”

The construction will take part in three phases, with the first phase constituting the construction of a 1 million-square-foot distribution center (Building 1) on 46 acres, as well as grading, site work and design of a 371,229-square-foot distribution center (Building 2) on the adjacent 19 acres.

The Building 2 construction provides the flexibility to develop additional parking or trailer storage for Building 1, which will feature 37-foot clear height, 8-inch concrete “level” floor slab, 185-foot deep secured truck courts, ESFR, designated truck queuing lanes and offices to suit.

The second phase will include the development of the adjacent 7-acre parcel, which could provide additional parking, trailer storage, or accommodate a planned 86,853-square-foot building (Building 3).

The project is located in Riverside’s prestigious Hunter Park industrial corridor, in the heart of Southern California’s Inland Empire. The site provides direct access to I-215, CA 60, CA 91, and I-10, and is a short distance from the Hunter Park/University of California Riverside MetroLink station, which provides commuter rail access to the Greater Los Angeles metropolitan area.
