Oakland, CA (April 16, 2018) – Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) has announced completion of a lease with NorCraft Cabinetry for 38,988 square feet of brand new warehouse space in Lathrop, CA. Starting as a small regional manufacturer, Norcraft Cabinetry has evolved to become the fifth largest cabinetry producer in the United States with clients that include KB Homes and Pulte Homes, among others. Norcraft is a leader in the cabinet market, creating glazed cabinets, kitchen cabinets, bath vanities, entertainment centers, wine racks and cabinets, and more.
NKF Director Shawn Klein represented NorCraft in the 62-month lease within the Crossroads Logistics Center, a newly-constructed 35 acre business park located at the intersection of Nestle Way and Christopher Way at Crossroads Commerce Center in Lathrop. The landlord is Buzz Oates Real Estate. Other recent tenants within the park include Tesla Motors and Raymond Material Handling.
The business park is a class A, three-building industrial complex targeting larger sized logistics, transportation and manufacturing uses, with warehouses that range in size from 103,000 square feet to 338,000 square feet of space. The park’s tenants benefits from proximity to the greater San Francisco region, Port of Oakland, BNSF and UP intermodals. The NorCraft Cabinetry warehouse features six dock doors, grade-level loading and 32’ clear height.
“More and more clients are asking about the Central Valley due to its reduced cost and the abundant labor force. This trend will continue as Bay Area costs continue to escalate and the ability to expand is more challenging,” said Klein. “If businesses don’t have to be located in the immediate Bay Area, the Central Valley is an excellent alternative.”
