Menlo Park, CA (PRWEB) June 28, 2005
HG Capital, LLC (HG) announces a joint venture investment with Focus Real Estate LP, for the acquisition of 4.35 acres of land on three parcels within the Waterman Place business park in San Bernardino, CA. The project will consist of the development and eventual sale to owner-users of seven individual industrial buildings all ranging in size from 8,500 square feet to 14,500 square feet for a total project of 76,000 square feet. HG Capital invested approximately $1.4m of equity in the project and closed on the land with a construction loan from Alliance Bank.
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 the region. The project's strong infill location within the established Waterman Place business park, the demand for owner-user facilities, and Focus Real Estate's development expertise in the region make this an exciting investment for HG.
Herrick Johnson of Lee & Associates in Riverside, California (http://www.lee-associates.com/riverside) is the leasing and sales broker for the project.
