Pacific Commons South, Industrial Infill Development In Fremont, CA Breaks Ground
13 6 2018
Overton Moore Properties (“OMP”) and Invesco Real Estate, together with CBRE announced that Pacific Commons South (PCS) has commenced construction. Once complete, the business park will include ten buildings and 1.7 million square feet of advanced manufacturing and warehouse space. The first phase of approximately 1 million square feet is now under construction. The ownership, a joint venture between OMP and global real estate investment manager Invesco Real Estate, purchased the property in 2017.
The leasing team is CBRE’s Rob Shannon, Chip Sutherland and Bob Ferraro.
The largest mixed-use industrial infill site in the San Francisco Bay Area, Pacific Commons South provides opportunities for advanced manufacturing, biotech, clean tech, food production, and warehouse uses in a centralized, high finished, well-established business park. PCS is just three miles from the Warm Springs BART station and provides convenient access to Interstates 880 and 680. The property is just west of Tesla’s factory and within walking distance from dozens of local restaurants and retail amenities, including the adjacent Pacific Commons Shopping Center. The project is adjacent to the Don Edwards Wildlife Reserve and also features walking trails adjacent to the Don Edwards Wildlife Reserve, parks and bike-friendly paths.
“PCS will offer users a unique environment that incorporates state of the art product situated in a work-life environment. The project offers multiple outdoor amenities that will assist companies in recruiting and retaining the best talent,” said Timur Tecimer, OMP’s CEO. This is OMP’s third project in Fremont.
“The market is really hungry for this type of smart, integrated facility solution,” said Rob Shannon, Executive Vice President. “Silicon Valley is home to the most progressive and successful companies in the world, and they are looking for ways to make their employees’ workdays more convenient, healthier and more productive. Given its location, size and quality, PCS will deliver meaningful value in all of these domains.”
Christina Briggs, Deputy Director of Economic Development for the City of Fremont noted that, “There is unprecedented demand for Class A industrial space driven by large OEMs and their supply chains and by the city’s fastest-growing industries, including IoT and biomedical. With its scale and variety, we see a huge opportunity for Pacific Commons South to accommodate the entire supply chain continuum, including manufacturing, production, research and development, office, storage and distribution facilities—all in a single location.”
With the regional and national economy continuing to expand, the Silicon Valley industrial vacancy is at a historical low of two percent as of Q1 2018. The Fremont submarket in particular continues to see strong demand. Above average growth is projected for the region for the foreseeable future.
