Construction has begun on a 2.2-million-square-foot industrial park in Calimesa.
Birtcher Oak Valley Commerce Center is being built at Singleton and Roberts roads next to Interstate 10, according to Birtcher Development LLC in Newport Beach, the project’s developer.
The cost of the project was not disclosed. Construction is expected to be completed in the second and third quarters of 2024.
Birtcher Oak Valley Commerce Center will consist of four Class-A logistics buildings that cover 705,780 square feet, 466,170 square feet, 457,250 square feet, and 619,360 square feet. Each will have approximately 5,100 square feet of office space.
