Newmark Knight Frank Brings Two New Tenants to Ontario Warehouse
Ontario, CA – Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) has leased the entire Airport Distribution Center, located at 5700 E. Airport Drive in Ontario, to two tenants: Esperia Holdings, LLC and Technical Consumer Products, Inc. The 250,248-square-foot industrial building is located at the southwest corner of Airport Drive and Etiwanda Avenue.
NKF Executive Managing Directors Mark Kegans and Ron Washle represented the landlord, Alere Property Group, LLC in this transaction. Lee & Associates’ John Seoane represented Esperia Holdings, LLC for approximately 103,432 square feet of space. JLL’s Tim O’Rourke represented Technical Consumer Products, Inc. for approximately 146,816 square feet of space.
Having the capability to accommodate two tenants, the building worked well in Alere’s favor. Ron Washle noted that, “Thelandlord decided to split the original building into two units as the rents for dividing it commanded 15 to 20 percent higher rental rates.”
The industrial warehouse features front and rear offices, as well as a small shipping office totaling approximately 10,662 square feet. Built in 1989, other building features include 28’ minimum warehouse clearance, 42 dock high doors, ESFR fire sprinkler system, and a large fenced truck yard.
According to NKF research, the Inland Empire continues to lead other national markets in industrial absorption. Market-wide industrial vacancy in the Inland Empire remained under 5 percent for the 24th consecutive quarter, while rent set a new record high.
