Speculative Industrial Project Offers Unparalleled Access to Interstates 215 and 10
(Feb. 26, 2020 – Inland Empire, Calif.) – Transwestern Development Co. (TDC®) today announces it has broken ground on I-215 Commerce Center, a 225,185-square-foot speculative warehouse at the corner of East Cooley Drive and Ashley Way in Colton, California. Situated near the junction of Interstates 215 and 10, the industrial development offers exceptional access to both thoroughfares and the greater Southern California region. It is slated for delivery in October 2020.
“This project provides users a central location with convenient access to the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, premier gateways for trade between the U.S. and Asia,” said Sara Santomauro, Development Manager in the TDC National Logistics Group. “It is ideal for today’s industrial and e-commerce users that require modern distribution space that can accommodate high racking systems.”
I-215 Commerce Center features 32-foot clear heights, 28 dock-high loading doors, ESFR sprinkler system, 50-foot-by-52-foot column spacing, 153 auto parking stalls and 31 trailer parking stalls. With frontage facing I-215, users have visibility to more than 174,000 vehicles per day. It also offers proximity to the San Bernardino International Airport and Ontario International Airport.
“California’s Inland Empire remains one of the top industrial markets in the country,” said Stephen Batcheller, Partner in the TDC National Logistics Group. “The region has experienced tremendous growth and demand from industrial users of all sizes as they look to improve their supply chain and take advantage of business incentives. As a result, we are very bullish on the future demand for high-quality logistics space in Southern California.”
The site is in the Inland Empire West submarket, which has a current vacancy rate of only 1.9%, substantially below the national average of 4.4%. The Inland Empire West offers unparalleled infrastructure and is home to the busiest rail corridor in the U.S., served by Union Pacific and BNSF. The Inland Empire West also offers users lower drayage rates than other Inland Empire areas, as it is located approximately 60 miles northeast from the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.
TDC has assembled a talented team of experts to execute the project, including:
- Fullmer Construction as the general contractor;
- RGI as the architect;
- Thienes Engineering Inc. as the civil engineer;
- Southern California Geotechnical Inc. as the geotechnical engineer;
- Avocet Environmental Inc. as the environmental consultant; and
- CBRE as the leasing team.
The National Logistics Group has grown to 23 professionals across six regional offices. The group develops both speculative and build-to-suit industrial projects, primarily in major distribution markets, with expertise in intermodal logistics, e-commerce, port strategy, sustainability and municipal incentives.
Founded in 1978, Transwestern has developed office, industrial, multifamily and healthcare projects across the United States. Since 2012, Transwestern Development Company’s pipeline of projects either completed or in process exceeds $5.6 billion in total cost.

Toyota Arena has announced a new partnership with Stater Bros. Markets effective July 1, 2022.
Guests of the arena will soon be able to experience the new branding of the North Patio, which will include live concerts featuring local bands and up-and-coming professional talent. “We are thrilled to welcome Stater Bros.

Charities provides non-profit organizations in our local region with support. We are on board to help as well.”
The marketing amenities this partnership will provide Stater Bros. will include a presence on several assets including the arena’s Interstate 10 marquee, overhead LED scoreboard, television monitors throughout the facility, website, and more.

IECE Presents its Inaugural State of Entrepreneur Report on Dec. 9
The first-ever State of Entrepreneurship Address for the Inland Empire is being held by the Cal State San Bernardino Inland Empire Center for Entrepreneurship on Thursday, Dec. 9, from 5-8 p.m. at 4th Sector Innovations in Ontario.
IECE’s goal in producing the State of Entrepreneurship research study is to bring the voice of local entrepreneurs to those who need to hear it most – local and state policymakers, community organizations, lenders, and other resource providers.
The Voice of the Entrepreneur survey, on which the address is based, sends powerful feedback on the challenges that entrepreneurs and business owners of the Inland Southern California region face.
Survey results were drawn out earlier this year by reaching out to IECE’s extensive network, consisting of more than 10,000 entrepreneurs and business owners representing a diverse group of industries. The IECE will continue to distribute the Voice of the Entrepreneur survey in the spring of each calendar year to find out what Inland Empire entrepreneurs and business owners are going through.
The report is a potent tool for policymakers, economic impact drivers, and business owners and entrepreneurs to analyze growth potential within the region. Using measurable data, the goal is to identify the challenges and opportunities facing local business owners and obstacles that may be impeding business growth.
The result is a concise report that gives insight into how we can effectively learn and evolve together with a regional focus.
The evening will start and end with networking and food; in between, the SOER report will be presented, which includes examining the indicators of entrepreneurial activity and how the IE measures up as a region; learning of the Voice of the Entrepreneur direct survey results and the common themes, as well as an IE Ecosystem assessment; and regional perspectives from influencers that include:
- Rod Vandenbos, founder and CEO, buzzbox beverages, Indio;
- Mike Napoli, Tech Coast Angels, Palm Springs;
- Edward Ornelas, Jr. President, Inland Empire Regional Chamber of Commerce
- Ana Karina Suchánek, president, Cask Restaurant Group, Inc., Rancho Cucamonga; and
- Pepi Jackson, president and CEO, Riverside Black Chamber of Commerce
Click the following link – Secure Your Spot for the 2021 State of Entrepreneurship Address – to attend, network and learn more about entrepreneurship in the region. Whether you are a seasoned or soon-to-be entrepreneur, there is a perspective for everyone who wants to know more about how to strengthen the Inland Empire economy.
The presentation will unveil breakthrough metrics and perspectives on the State of Entrepreneurship throughout the Inland Empire, including:
- Why a report like this is essential for the collective growth of our region;
- What the report consists of: indicators for entrepreneurship and what real entrepreneurs in our communities are telling us through our Voice of the Entrepreneur survey results; and
- Regional perspectives from influencers and officials that are active in our ecosystem.
The event will also include food and cocktails while networking within an inspirational setting at 4th Sector Innovations Ontario.
