JLL Completes Three Leases totalling 1.28 Million Square Feet on behalf of Allen Distribution in Ontario, California

Third-party logistics provider expands into Southern California's Inland Empire

ONTARIO, CALIF. Feb. 23, 2015 — JLL announced today that it has completed three leases on behalf of Allen Distribution, a third-party logistics provider, totalling 1.28 million square feet in Ontario, Calif. The buildings are owned by Prologis and located within Prologis’ West Inland Empire portfolio of properties. 

JLL Executive Vice Presidents Kim Meincke, Tim O'Rourke and Mike Fowler represented Allen Distribution. The landlord, Prologis, was represented in-house by Travis Durfee.

"The Inland Empire industrial market is key to third-party logistics providers because it provides access to the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, while allowing easy access to the population of not only Southern California, but the entire West Coast." said O'Rourke. "Allen Distribution is confident that these new facilities will enable it to better serve its clients on the West Coast."

O'Rourke went on to say "the Inland Empire continues to be one of the hottest markets in the country. Product under 200,000 square feet and above 1,000,000 square feet is seeing heightened activity. Despite the completion of approximately 21 million square feet of new product in 2014, the overall vacancy rate has decreased to approximately 5.1 percent.  With the growth of e-commerce and the constrained industrial supply in the Los Angeles and Orange County markets, we should continue to see new development activity in the Inland Empire.”
