Skechers Expands, Adding 365,000-SF Industrial Space in Moreno Valley

Skechers USA to occupy 365,000-SF Industrial Building in Moreno Valley

Moreno Valley, CA – After purchasing the property in August, Westcore Properties signed Skechers USA, Inc. to occupy its entire 365,000-square-foot industrial building, located at 22705 Newhope St. in Moreno Valley, California. The three-year lease is valued at $5.5 million.

Having reached capacity at its nearby warehouse property, Skechers chose to expand to the Newhope St. property due to the building’s size, proximity, immediate availability and Moreno Valley address.

“The City of Moreno Valley is extremely helpful,” said Hack Adams, senior vice president at Westcore Properties. “They assisted us in getting Skechers immediate access to the building. We believe the city’s proactive and business friendly nature as well as its concierge approach to doing business is one of the main reasons why Skechers wanted to stay within the City of Moreno Valley.”

Westcore made cosmetic improvements to the property late last year. The warehouse building features 32-foot minimum clear height, 48 dock-high doors, ESFR sprinklers, three percent vented skylights, 3,000 amps of available power and 2,000-square-feet of existing office. The all-concrete site includes 52 trailer parking spaces, a 180-foot secured truck court, perimeter fencing and a secure, gated entry.

Car charging stations, roof-mounted solar panels and drought-tolerant landscaping helped qualify the building for a LEED rating.

“Westcore’s ability to quickly perform the tenant improvements Skechers wanted was essential for getting this transaction executed,” said Darla Longo, vice chairman at CBRE.

Longo and Joey Sugar of CBRE represented Skechers in the transaction, while Gerry Harvey of CBRE and Dave Burback of Kidder Matthews represented Westcore.
