The Genesis of Renewal and Reimagination

When CenterPoint Properties acquired the massive SoCal Logistics Center (SCLC), its leaders knew they had landed one of the largest contiguous infill warehouse sites in the LA and Orange County markets.

They also knew it was truly a diamond in the rough for an e-commerce tenant looking to tap into the region’s abundant labor and affluent customer base, all while having cost-effective access to the entire region’s critical shipping channels. However, to meet the needs of last-mile tenants of today and the future, CenterPoint also knew it had to devote significant resources to implement a strategic repositioning plan to transform it into an environmentally sustainable, energy efficient and truly modern logistics facility.

So, CenterPoint put the ingenuity of its development team and project partners to the test to pull off an aggressive $20 million repositioning in just 9 months.

This repositioning project perfectly showcases CenterPoint’s deep commitment to developing high-performance industrial facilities that give our customers distinct environmental, economic and operational advantages.”
