New Industrial Park Breaks Ground In Pomona


Twelve Buildings to be Constructed Totaling 292,296 Square feet 

POMONA, CA (November 27, 2006) – CB Richard Ellis announced today it will handle the sales and leasing of twelve new industrial buildings totaling 292,296 square feet in Pomona that broke ground today.  Under development by Long Beach-based Seventh Street Development, the buildings are part of the new Mission-71 Business Park, being built on land the company acquired last spring near the high profile intersection of the 71, 57 and 10 freeways.  CBRE industrial market experts Lynn Knox, Lyn Eisenhower, Barbara Emmons and John Privett are representing Seventh Street Development in the marketing of the buildings.

The twelve buildings will range in size from 16,000 to 42,000 square feet and will be available for sale or lease in the 3rd Quarter of 2007.  Offering ample parking and 35’ wide drive aisles, internal/external dock loading positions, as well as two-story office space, the buildings will also feature exceptional freeway visibility between two major thoroughfares.

“There is a pent up demand in Pomona by industrial users and buyers, so the Mission-71 Business Park is positioned to do very well,” said Knox.  “Its location will draw strong interest from the San Gabriel Valley, Los Angeles and north Orange County markets, and there continues to be a market for businesses who want to own their properties.”

The business park, which will be constructed in phases, also offers build-to-suit opportunities up to 100,000 square feet.  Mission-71 Business Park is Seventh Street Development’s first project in the city of Pomona.  Fullmer Companies is the General Contractor.  Ware Malcolm is the architect and Walden & Associates is the Civil Engineer for the project.  JP Morgan Chase is providing the construction financing.
