There is plenty of space for very large facilities and vacant land to accommodate business’ needs. Housing more than 378 million square feet of warehousing space, according to Jeremy Trotter, vice president of Synergy Real Estate Group. He said there’s been an increase of 7 million square feet being leased in 2012 first two quarters compared with last year’s 2011 first two quarters.
The Inland Empire has lenient government regulation that welcomes the logistics, distribution and manufacturing and employment growth.
With a huge amount of supply in the area prices are not competitive and warehouse space can be negotiated for a good deal, giving a business a low-cost warehouse space, which meets their requirements.
Inland Empire Traffic
Compared to Los Angeles and other Southern California regions freeways in the Inland Empire are usually smoother sailing for truckers. There are multiple freeways, rail yards and airports. It is easier to move materials from the Inland Empire to other states, bypassing Los Angeles’ notorious traffic.
Warm, dry weather offers safer working conditions at warehouse sites and reduces delays in logistics.
With all these factors combine to make the Inland Empire the largest logistics center in the United States.
About Synergy Real Estate Group, Corporate Advisory LLC:
Synergy is a tenant / buyer representation - corporate real estate advisory firm that exclusively represents medium sized companies and corporations for their real estate needs. A short list of clients include NASA-Hubble, Cisco Systems, HP, ExxonMobil, Charles Schwab, Orrick Harrington, Farmers Insurance, Wabash Technologies (Mexico), TATA (India), Larsen Tourbo (India), TCP (China), Prexion (Japan). Synergy does not represent Landlords or Building Owners, only Tenants. Synergy identifies the space, sends out proposals on behalf of the tenant, drafts and negotiates the contract and close the transaction. In the proposal process, Synergy gets landlords/property owners to compete for business to secure the best terms and price. Synergy differentiates themselves from most commercial real estate brokerage firms by holding a strict policy of not listing property. By doing so, Synergy is not limited to their own listings and can show every property in the market. By not alligning themselves with Property Owners, Synergy avoids any possible conflicts of interest inherent in representing both sides of the transaction. Synergy is compensated only if the deal closes. The listing broker splits their commission with us for negotiating the Tenant’s interests in the transaction.
