Excerpt from the Orange County Business JournalCEMENT PLANT SITE TO HOLD NEW INDUSTRIAL BUILDING Project among biggest in Anaheim in years Mark Mueller Saturday, December 7, 2013
A former cement manufacturing plant in Anaheim is on the fast track to be turned into a new industrial property. Owners of 4850 E. La Palma Ave. are moving ahead with plans for a development at the 4.6-acre site thatâ€™s slated to be 93,447 square feet.
The industrial building will be just north of the Riverside (91) Freeway near the intersection of East La Palma Avenue and Hancock Street. Brokers representing the propertyâ€™s owners said they expect the project to be completed by next summer. The old cement plant is being razed as part of the development.
The owners will offer the new building for lease, according to Ben Seybold, Senior Vice President for the Orange office of CBRE Group Inc. Rents for the building, which will hold as much as 17,000 square feet of office space, havenâ€™t been disclosed.
The building will be one of the larger industrial properties built in Anaheimâ€”home to Orange Countyâ€™s largest base of warehouses and distribution facilitiesâ€”in several years. The last big industrial project to be completed in the city was Irvine-based Sares-Regis Groupâ€™s three-building Canyon Point project near Miraloma Avenue. That 120,000-square-foot development was completed in 2011, and the buildings were sold to owner-users.
