Goodman Group, an industrial property group, has announced that its wholly owned North American subsidiary, Goodman Birtcher, has 100% leased the Goodman Logistics Center Rancho Cucamonga to Georgia-Pacific. The transaction was signed one month prior to project completion and is one of the largest leases signed on an industrial development in Southern California in the past 10 years.
Georgia-Pacific, a U.S. company based in Atlanta, GA, is manufacturer and marketer of bath tissue, paper towels and napkins, tableware, paper-based packaging, office papers, cellulose, specialty fibers, non-woven fabrics, building products, and related chemicals. Beginning in August, a third party management company will operate a distribution facility at the Goodman Logistics Center Rancho Cucamonga to support Georgia-Pacific’s consumer products business.
Brandon Birtcher, chief executive officer of Goodman Birtcher said: “We are delighted to welcome Georgia-Pacific to our LEED certified Goodman Logistics Center Rancho Cucamonga. This Class A logistics campus typifies our approach to providing flexible, high quality, modern industrial space in strategic locations, capable of meeting our customers’ unique operational requirements.”
Goodman Logistics Center Rancho Cucamonga is situated in the Inland Empire West, with excellent access to I-10 freeway, a primary transport route to the Ports of Los Angeles/Long Beach and Ontario International Airport. The facility is yet another project of Goodman Birtcher’s $1.5 billion development pipeline, providing 15 million square feet of Class A logistics space in core U.S. markets including California, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
Goodman Birtcher is progressing with the rollout of its development pipeline and currently has three flexibly designed, large format logistics and warehouse developments underway in the Inland Empire market of Southern California. On completion, these developments in Rancho Cucamonga, Fontana and Eastvale will provide a combined 4.3 million square feet of prime space, suitable for a range of customer groups.
