DHL Acquires 830,750-SF San Bernardino Warehouse from Westcore Properties
Closing occurs one year after Westcore’s purchase
San Bernardino, CA (Aug 13, 2018) – After acquiring and quickly leasing the entirety of a San Bernardino, California warehouse property to LG Electronics last year, Westcore Properties has sold the 830,750-square-foot Cajon Distribution Center to DHL for an undisclosed price.
The Class A, cross-dock warehouse building is located on more than 35 acres at 6207 N. Cajon Blvd. It is well suited as a regional distribution hub due to its proximity to major freeways and a BNSF Intermodal. Modern features include 36 feet of clear height, energy-efficient lighting, generous trailer parking, ample power capacity, secured concrete truck yards, two guard shacks and state-of-the-art dock packages.
“We were proud to own this asset, and through the lease to LG added several reusable improvements that made the first-generation space more suitable for future occupants,” said Hack Adams, senior vice president at Westcore Properties.
DHL will occupy Cajon Distribution Center over time, using the facility to warehouse and distribute goods for its long-term clients. Corporate neighbors include Hewlett Packard, JC Penny and FedEx, among others.
DHL was represented in its unsolicited offer by Darla Longo, Barbara Perrier and Joey Sugar of CBRE. Westcore represented itself.
“We remain very bullish on the Inland Empire industrial market,” said Don Ankeny, president and CEO of Westcore Properties. “When companies start making unsolicited offers, it’s a powerful indicator of the supply-demand imbalance and makes it a great place to own industrial real estate.”
