Westcore Properties Sells March Air Logistics Center to Crow Holdings Industrial in Off-Market Transaction

Westcore Properties has sold the 277,270-square-foot March Air Logistics Center, an air cargo and industrial facility at the March Inland Port (formerly March Airforce Base), to Dallas, Texas-based Crow Holdings Industrial in an off-market transaction for an undisclosed sum. 

The property, located at 17101 Heacock Street in Riverside, California, has direct runway access to March Inland Port, as well as to one million square feet of ramp area for aircraft taxiway and parking, and offers extensive trailer parking.

Crow Holdings will also have the option of expanding at the north and south ends of the building as well as leasing up 170,800 square feet of the space. The property is designated part of a Foreign Trade Zone.

“Through an existing relationship with Crow Industrial, we knew that this property would align with Crow’s acquisition criteria,” said Hack Adams, senior vice president at Westcore. “It’s a tremendously unique property with enough space to park eight Boeing 747-400 aircraft.

Other building features include cross-dock loading, 31- to 33-foot clear height, 112 dock high loading doors and an 8,000-amp electrical panel. The property is fully secured and includes two guard houses. 

“The March Inland Port is home to one of the most sustainable and progressive business centers within California,” added Lauren Suazo, director of leasing at Westcore. “It’s airport fees for aviation operations and service vendors are some of the lowest in Southern California, which will be a strong draw for tenants.”

Jim Koenig, David Consani and Katrin Gist of CBRE represented Westcore in this transaction, while Crow Holdings represented itself. 

Westcore purchased the property in 2014 for $17M.
