The industrial development alliance between Conor Commercial Real Estate, a member of The McShane Companies, and MetLife Real Estate Investors, is pleased to announce the development and groundbreaking of Redlands Logistics Center, a 1,013,331-square-foot state-of-the-art speculative industrial facility in Redlands, California, located within the popular Inland Empire industrial market. The single- or multi-tenant industrial facility will represent the largest industrial building available for lease within Southern California’s Redlands/San Bernardino area. Completion and tenant occupancy is scheduled for Q2 2015.

Generous on-site parking will also be available for 200 trailers and 543 vehicles conveniently situated around the perimeter of the building.

Dobrott, President – Industrial Division of Conor Commercial Real Estate. William Lu, PE, Conor Commercial’s Vice President and lead development officer for this project, added, “Following the alliance’s success of the Redlands Business Center, an adjacent land parcel that was developed as a 704,115-square-foot pre-sale industrial facility, we are confident that the demand for Class A industrial space will draw immediate interest from tenants.”
