Trammell Crow Company (TCC) and Clarion Partners, LLC were joined by City officials and community members to officially celebrate the initial raising of the walls for Phase 1 of the highly-anticipated Los Angeles County business park The Center at Needham Ranch. Phase I occupancy is scheduled for Spring 2019.

The project is a master-planned, 132 net-acre industrial development located immediately adjacent to the San Fernando Valley approximately one mile north of Interstate 5 adjacent to Highway 14, providing immediate access to the San Fernando Valley and greater Los Angeles region with more than 5 million people within a 30-minute commute. Sitting at the southern entrance to the City of Santa Clarita, the development is ideally situated for “last mile” and regional distribution, studio and entertainment uses, manufacturing, research and development and corporate office uses.

Phase 1 of The Center at Needham Ranch is comprised approximately of a 900,000-square-foot, 7-building, Class A industrial park, offering buildings ranging from approximately 36,000-to-212,000 square feet on a 52-net-acre site. State-of-the-art features include: 30-to-36-foot interior clear heights with ESFR fire sprinklers, abundant dock high loading with large truck courts and yard areas, attractive architectural design featuring extensive use of glass, and abundant vehicle parking with capacity for above standard parking counts.

“Our walls are going up on our first three buildings and we are excited to finally be delivering this long anticipated project with Clarion Partners,” said John Balestra, Senior Vice President with TCC’s SoCal – Los Angeles Business Unit. “Since breaking ground in December 2017, mass grading is now completed, we are completing significant utility and traffic infrastructure improvements and our first three buildings are now underway. Given the extremely limited supply of functional Class A industrial product in the Greater Los Angeles North market where the vacancy rate is 1.4 percent, it is no surprise that we are already generating very strong occupier interest.” 

“The City of Santa Clarita is an award-winning community that provides a lower cost of doing business and a high quality of life with expedited permit processing with an abundance of available housing, retail and recreational amenities” stated Philip Tsui, Vice President with TCC’s SoCal – Los Angeles Business Unit. “We truly appreciate the commitment and dedication of the City of Santa Clarita leadership and city staff to supporting our efforts to provide a best in class business park to increase local employment opportunities and future occupiers of The Center at Needham Ranch will derive significant cost savings and access to qualified employees in a  phenomenal live-work-play location  with convenient access to all Southern California population centers.”
