Goodrick Logistics Center provides Class A industrial ‘last mile’ options for users in an inventory-starved Bay Area industrial market

RICHMOND, CA (September 27, 2018) – Industrial occupiers’ recent frustrating search for new space options in the I-80 corridor is getting a little easier. New speculative developments such as Goodrick Logistics Center in Richmond are delivering flexibility and relief in what has been an extremely tight market over the last two years.

Goodrick Logistics Center is one of the only completed Class A, new industrial development over 100,000 square feet in the entire Richmond market which is ready for immediate occupancy in Q4 of 2018.

Jason Ovadia, Eddie Shuai, Patrick Metzger and Mike Murray of JLL are handling leasing for Goodrick Logistics Center, which is a partnership between New York Life Real Estate Investors (on behalf of an institutional client) and Schaal Realty Advisors.

The property is uniquely positioned in the current market, according to Jason Ovadia, Managing Director, JLL. “This is a premium quality, flexible industrial asset ideally located close to all major regional transportation links including I-80 and I-580, as well as marine shipping channels and freight rail links. Most importantly, it is one of the only new, state of the art industrial building immediately available for Q4 2018 occupancy in this market,” he says.

The newly-completed logistics center is located near Richmond Parkway and has over 168,000 square feet of available Class A space in two buildings of +/-113,324 s.f. and +/-58,500 s.f., respectively. The property can accommodate warehouse-distribution users or advanced manufacturers seeking a flexible occupier solution in an institutional business park environment.

The property showcases modern logistics features such as 32-foot clear heights, ESFR sprinklers, a high dock ratio at 23 docks with two grade doors as well as 24-foot clear heights and 10 grade level loading doors in the smaller building.

Vacancy among all classes of industrial properties in the Bay Area was 4.2 percent, as of June 30, 2018, with no availability in the Class A sector in Richmond. While there is some three million square feet of new industrial product underway throughout the Bay Area, only about two million square feet will be delivered by 2019. Meanwhile, more than fifty tenants accounting for almost five million square feet of demand are currently competing for industrial space throughout the East Bay.
