Largest Single-Owner Project on Tijuana Border Draws Interest

JLL completes the sale of industrial park and truck yard

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 1, 2015 – There’s never a dull moment on the world’s most active border, and that includes real estate trades. On behalf of Clarion Partners, JLL’s Capital Markets experts today announced the firm has sold  International Business Center, a seven-building industrial park with a 9.2-acre truck yard located outside San Diego in Otay Mesa, CA. A private real estate investor purchased the 517,207-square-foot portfolio. JLL was also awarded the leasing assignment for the property.

Managing Directors Bo Mills and Mark Detmer led the JLL team on the transaction, while Managing Director Jay Alexander, Senior Vice President Ryan Grove and Senior Associate Joe Anderson handled the leasing.

“This complex represents one of the largest single-owner projects in Otay Mesa,” said Mills. “The project is perfectly located within the submarket and offers a wide variety of amenities such as trailer parking, dock high and grade level loading and a wide range of suite sizes to accommodate nearly any size use. It is the closest property to the truck inspection terminal, located on the busiest land border in the world.”

The International Business Center is one mile from the new cross-border international airport terminal for Tijuana Airport.
