Southern California Logistics Airport Puts Victorville on the Map

According to NAIOP Development Magazine, Summer 2015, Victorville, California’s three industrial parks — and a proposed fourth — have attracted nationally and internationally recognized companies to conduct manufacturing, warehousing and aerospace-related services. Three of these parks are being master planned and developed through a public-private partnership between the city of Victorville and Stirling Capital Investments as Global Access Victorville. This 8,500-acre multi-modal freight transportation hub is supported by extensive air, ground and rail connections. It includes the Southern California Logistics Airport, a 2,500- acre cargo and aviation facility; the Southern California Logistics Centre, a 2,500-acre commercial and industrial complex entitled for 60 million square feet of development; and the planned Southern California Rail Complex, which will be a 3,500-acre inter-modal complex featuring rail-served facilities. Another facility, the Foxborough Industrial Park, currently offers direct rail access. To date, an estimated 5 million square feet of industrial space has been constructed within Victorville’s industrial parks. The city’s core assets — a large skilled labor pool, affordable land, a robust multi-modal transportation network and an ideal climate — have positioned the city as a highly desired location for industrial development. As a result, an estimated 60 percent of all goods moving into and out of Southern California travel through Victorville. Carriers such as Cargolux, Lufthansa, Volga-Dnepr Airlines, FedEx and the U.S. armed forces have utilized the Southern California Logistics Airport’s (SCLA’s) state-of-the-art facility for timely, cost-effective goods movement. From 1999 to present, SCLA has received more than 15,310 tons of air cargo because of its proximity to the Southern California goods movement corridor and its ideal location — with convenient access to the entire western U.S. — for expanded and dedicated air cargo services. The next phase of Victorville’s industrial growth plan involves attracting build-to-suit tenants to SCLA, SCLC, Foxborough Industrial Park and the SCRC, to continue the development of this growing industrial and aerospace hub. With its pro-business climate and robust utilities and inter-modal offerings, Victorville is serving as the High Desert’s industrial hub and bringing further investment to the city.
