Perris, CA (June 24, 2019) — Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) has announced the completion of a 579,708-square-foot lease transaction on behalf of Kenco Logistics Services, LLC, one of the largest woman-owned, third-party logistics companies in the United States. The firm will be locating to Perris Logistics Center located at 3900 Indian Avenue in Perris, CA.
NKF Executive Managing Directors Ron Washle and Mark Kegans represented Kenco Logistics Services, LLC. Steve Bellitti and Thomas Taylor from Colliers International represented the property owner, Clarion Partners.
This building is an expansion for Kenco, which operates numerous facilities in the greater Inland Empire region.
Kenco will occupy the entire building. Perris Logistics Center is a state-of-the-art distribution warehouse built in 2014 and owned by Clarion Partners. The building is located near the southeast corner of Ramona Expressway and Indian Avenue.
According to NKF research provided by Dain Fedora, research director of Southern California, the Inland Empire continues to lead other markets in absorption. Market-wide vacancy remained under 5 percent for the 24th consecutive quarter, while rent set a new record high.
The Inland Empire, located 40 miles to the east of Los Angeles, is Southern California’s last stop for companies to establish distribution or manufacturing centers within reasonable proximity of the nation’s busiest port system. The market contains 73 percent of Southern California’s Class A warehouse inventory, which provides plenty of space options for occupiers to consolidate or expand operations.
