San Fernando, CA: Six-Year Lease for Rare Food Manufacturing Facility

1516 - 1606 1st St

San Fernando, CA – February 15, 2022 – Executive Managing Director Yair Haimoff, SIOR with Spectrum Commercial Real Estate, Inc., just completed a 23,925 square foot lease of a food manufacturing facility, located in San Fernando, CA.

This 23,925 square foot property is located at 1530-1606 1st Street in the city of San Fernando, California. The building is currently used as a food manufacturing facility and features multiple coolers, food prep areas, washrooms, floor drains throughout, and a large lot with private gated concrete yard. The building has heavy electrical power with additional expansion possibilities.

The City of San Fernando is surrounded by Los Angeles cities like Sylmar, Lake View Terrace, Pacoima, and Mission Hills. It is served by Interstate 5, 210, 118 and 405 freeways.

“Our client needed additional space to grow its food manufacturing operation, however, it was extremely difficult to find additional space due to the low vacancy rate of Industrial product, especially food manufacturing facilities.” said Yair Haimoff, “Some of our food users give up on looking for existing food use facilities and focus on converting general industrial space into food uses. However, the cost of converting industrial space into food manufacturing is extremely expensive and the process is very long. Once this property came on the market, we needed to act quick and place an offer. The negotiations went smoothly, and we were successful in securing a long-term lease.”

Industrial sales have been vigorous during the pandemic, and the demand for refrigerated warehouse space has seen a flood of investments pouring in due to the demand for grocery deliveries and meal kit companies. Reports show that cold storage properties accounted for $2 billion in sales volume in 2021.

Yair Haimoff represented the Tenant and Greg Geraci with Colliers International represented the Landlord.
