Munchkin Signs 341,280-Square-Foot Industrial Lease in Redlands, California

JLL negotiates regional warehouse and distribution facility for leading baby product company


REDLANDS, CALIF., Feb. 23, 2016 – On behalf of Munchkin, a leading designer and manufacturer of infant and toddler products, JLL today announced the firm has completed a 341,280-square-foot industrial lease at Prologis Redlands Distribution Center, located at 27334 San Bernardino Avenue in Redlands, California . The new location will operate at Munchkin’s regional warehouse and distribution facility.

JLL Executive Vice President Tim O'Rourke and Managing Director Mike McRoskey represented Munchkin. Prologis was represented internally by Tyson Chave and CBRE.

“Munchkin was looking for a centrally located modern facility near transportation corridors that would allow it to enhance its customer service.  In addition, to ensure both environmental and operational efficiencies, they required a LEED certified facility with a minimum clear height of 36 feet,” said O'Rourke. “We were able to secure a long-term lease with favorable terms that provided capacity for future growth.”

O'Rourke went on to say, "As speculative development continues to grow in the Inland Empire, tenants will see more options when it comes to lease terms and the selection of a modern distribution facility, which will allow for more efficient operations.” 

According to JLL research, in 2015, there was over 20 million square feet of industrial space delivered in the Inland Empire.
