Sudberry Properties has begun work on the 409,500-square-foot Otay River Business Park, a mixed-use industrial development on 50 acres in Chula Vista.
The site encompasses a former strawberry field and concrete plant about a mile east of Interstate 5 between Main Street in Chula Vista and the Otay Valley Regional Park.
Colton Sudberry, president of Sudberry Properties, said the project will ultimately consist of seven buildings ranging from 40,000 to 67,500 square feet and about 5,000 square feet of retail services.
A 13.9-acre public park for Chula Vista is also planned on the site.
According to city officials, it’s the largest project underway in the western Chula Vista area after the Bayfront redevelopment.
“The project will give tenants superior flex industrial space within a beautifully landscaped environment with restaurants, services and shopping within walking distance,” said Sudberry.
He added that the development is designed to meet the needs of “light industrial and warehouse tenants, companies with cross-border business, start-ups and R&D facilities.”
San Diego-based Sudberry Properties has developed approximately 12.6 million square feet of commercial and residential property with a market value exceeding $2.5 billion.
