Completed this summer, Rocky Point Distribution Center encompasses two buildings, each roughly 110,000 square feet in size, within the Pacific Coast Collection, a five-building project. Characteristics of the facilities include 30-foot clear heights, 52×60 column spacing, skylights and ESFR fire sprinklers. The buildings also feature grade-level and dock-high loading doors, truck courts and a parking ratio of 1.2 spaces per 1,000 square feet. At the time of the sale, the assets were around 52 leased to a mix of industrial tenants, including Wayfair Logistics.
