West Coast Cold Storage, a Southern California based food-grade warehousing and 3PL services provider, is bringing much-needed freezer/cooler space to the region with its new 127,000 square foot cold storage facility, expected to open this fall. West Coast Cold Storage is partnering with ARCO National Construction on the project.
The facility will feature 70,000 square feet of freezer space and 50,000 square feet of cooler space capable of accommodating a range of temperature requirements for increased marketability to freezer and cooler users. The warehouse space will have a clear height of 38 feet allowing for more than 18,000 pallet positions, and 19 refrigerated loading positions. The facility will offer pick and pull and re-work services in addition to cold storage.
Situated on 7 acres in Riverside County, just 50 miles east of Los Angeles, the facility’s strategic location offers easy access to I-10, I-215, and I-15, as well as state highway 60, allowing customers to efficiently serve local and regional clientele throughout Southern California. Shipping and receiving can be handled from multiple destinations in Southern California from the Port of Long Beach to all major freeways heading north and west.
Strategically located in Jurupa Valley within the Inland Empire logistics hub, the state-of-the-art facility will offer tenants flexible storage solutions and easy access to surrounding major freeways for efficient delivery throughout Southern California. The facility is set to bring approximately 75 new jobs to the region including managerial, accounting, and logistics positions.
Despite having the largest population in the U.S., Southern California has the second lowest cold storage cubic feet per capita. The need for cold storage space is higher than ever due to the recent explosion of e-commerce adoption and the rise of online grocery demand during the pandemic. Coupled with the age of most cold storage facilities in the market and lack of available supply, the demand for new construction is stronger than ever, demonstrated by a current cold storage occupancy rate of more than 96%.
