Size: 655,000 sq. ft.

Developer: Seventh Street Development

General Contractor: KPRS Construction Services, Inc.

Architect: rkz, inc.

The enormous 655,000 square foot Huy Fong Corporate Headquarters and Manufacturing Facility is the largest single building ever built in the City of Irwindale and the largest building constructed in Los Angeles County in the last two years.

But sheer size, while impressive, is perhaps not the primary story surrounding this project – rather, it is a remarkable success story about the successful redevelopment of a severely blighted, vacant and contaminated property into an enormous yet elegant, environmentally sustainable facility created to house an American Dream-experiencing, family-owned business, Huy Fong Foods. The ambitious project, which broke ground in October of 2010 and was completed in less than a year, now serves as a model that future mining reclamation/redevelopment projects in the area can look to for guidance.
