he development represents the first sizable speculative industrial facility delivered in the San Francisco Bay Area in the past 15 years and is the largest industrial warehouse to be developed and constructed within the submarket.

Cherry Logistics Center was leased to a full-building tenant at shell completion and an extensive interior build-out is now underway representing the largest industrial/warehouse lease deal in the East Bay in more than 10 years and largest in the Bay Area in over five years. The LEED-Silver, cross-dock facility will provide Class A industrial space incorporating 32′ clear height, 120 dock doors, full-size truck courts and on-site parking for 175+ trailers. The project was honored as a finalist for Best Green Project and Most Innovative Design by the Silicon Valley Business Journal.

“On behalf of Conor Commercial Real Estate and our partner, American Realty Advisors, we are delighted to be a part of the revival of the East Bay Area’s underserved industrial submarket with the delivery of the Cherry Logistics Center,” remarked William Lu, PE, LEED AP, Senior Development Manager at Conor Commercial Real Estate. “We are pleased to enter into a lease agreement for the entire building concurrent with project completion.”

“We appreciate the opportunity to work with Conor Commercial on this successful redevelopment,” said Kirk Helgeson, American’s EVP/Executive Managing Director. “Our partnership and collaboration with Conor in developing Cherry Logistics Center will have a significant impact on the local community – not only in creating hundreds of union construction jobs and contributing to longer-term economic growth, but also pioneering a new LEED-Silver industrial project. This asset can achieve solid investment returns for our investors while also enhancing the Bay Area’s infill market.”

McShane Construction Company and HPA, Inc. served as the design/build team for the construction of the speculative industrial property and will provide the significant interior tenant improvements currently underway. Jeff Starkovich, SIOR, Jay Hagglund, SIOR, and Sam Higgins, SIOR from Cassidy Turley’s Oakland office, and Scott Borgia and Mark Dowling of its San Jose and Pleasanton offices represented the ownership in the lease transaction. Cushman & Wakefield represented the tenant.
