Menlo Park, CA (PRWEB) June 24, 2005
HG Capital, LLC (HG) is pleased to announce its sixth joint venture investment with Newcastle Partners, investing in an industrial development in Colton, CA. The project consists of the acquisition and development of 7.75 acres of land, and the eventual sale of six industrial buildings ranging in size from 10,000 square feet to 40,000 square feet for a total project of 135,000 square feet. HG Capital invested approximately $3.0m of equity in the project and closed all-cash on the land.
The substantial growth in the Inland Empire industrial sector, driven in large part by the increase in overseas imports, has generated strong demand for owner-user assembly, manufacturing, and distribution centers. In addition, the city of Colton is unique in the region in that it provides municipal power to its inhabitants, producing a utility cost savings of approximately 40% compared to the Southern California Edison services provided to neighboring communities. Given the project's attractive land cost basis, the favorable utility cost structure, the experienced project sponsor, and the strong market, the project will offer an excellent value proposition to owner-users.
Jeff Smith, Greg Martin and Jeff Ruscigno of Lee & Associates in Ontario, California (http://www.lee-assoc.com) are the leasing and sales brokers for the project.
