CleanTech Manufacturing Center consists of the acquisition, entitlement, and construction of three new state-of-the-art, Class A buildings totaling 370,000 square feet on 18 acres in the highly supply-constrained downtown Los Angeles industrial market. The property is located within ½ mile proximity to Interstate 10, Interstate 5, and the 60 Freeway.
TCC acquired the former distressed Crown Coach site from the Los Angeles CRA/DLA in August 2012 pursuant to a competitive public disposition process. The Brownfield property had been vacant and unused since the late 1980’s prior to TCC’s acquisition and development of the property. TCC worked closely with the State and Local environmental oversight agencies to successfully address the environmental challenges to allow the development of the project for industrial buildings.
Opportunity, Solutions & Outcomes
The site is directly adjacent to the Metropolitan Transit Authority rail yard, and approximately ¼ mile south of Interstate 10, with excellent freeway access in close proximity to Downtown, the garment district, and the food distribution district. Construction activities began in December 2013 with the project fully delivered and occupied in January 2015.
The buildings obtained LEED Silver certification by the U.S. Green Building Council and was recognized by the Los Angeles Business Journal as the Best New Industrial Project in Los Angeles County in 2014.
