Birtcher Development has begun construction on Birtcher Logistics Center Rialto, a 492,410-square-foot facility in Rialto, Calif. Fullmer Construction is the project’s general contractor alongside HPA Inc. heading up architecture. Completion is expected in the first quarter of 2024.

The new high-cube facility is taking shape at 350 W. Valley Blvd. on a roughly 8.5-acre lot, CommercialEdge data shows. Its features are set to include 40-foot clear heights, 62 dock-high doors, two grade-level loading doors, 92 trailer parking spaces, 287 car parking spaces, ESFR sprinklers and a fully secured 185-foot truck court.

Birtcher Logistics Center Rialto will also comprise 5,000 square feet of ground-floor office space, in addition to a 5,000-square-foot mezzanine. As part of Birtcher’s commitment to create assets that contribute toward carbon reduction, the sustainable development will feature carbon sequestration and greenhouse gas offset programs.

Other sustainable components of the project will be electric vehicle chargers, concrete paving with a high Solar Reflective Index, equipment and appliances certified by Energy Star and EPA-certified Watersense plumbing equipment. In addition, the roof will be solar ready.

Convenient location within the Inland Empire

Situated in San Bernardino County, tenants will be close to other distribution centers such as Amazon, Target, Staples, Monster Energy and Under Armour. Ontario International Airport is 13 miles away.

To contribute toward Rialto’s truck traffic laws, Birtcher has made commitments to provide the funding to employ two commercial code enforcement officers as well as purchase a truck scale. The company will, along with the facility’s future tenant, also contribute annually to the Rialto community and residents on local matters. DAUM Commercial’s Eric Burney and Eric Fikse are the project’s listing brokers.

Last month, Birtcher Development obtained a $49.2 million construction loan for another industrial facility in California. The upcoming 330,048-square-foot warehouse in Fontana is set to feature 36-foot clear heights, 51 dock-high doors and a 185-foot truck court. The delivery date for the distribution center is similarly set for early 2024.
