Hines Acquires 16 Acres of Industrial Land in San Diego

Represents the first industrial development in the city for the firm

(SAN DIEGO) – Hines, the international real estate firm, announced today it has closed on 16.4 acres of land for the development of Raceway Industrial, an industrial logistics site near San Diego, California.

Current development plans for this site include a one-story, 249,000-square-foot warehouse located in Carlsbad. Hines aims to deliver the building in early 2022. The property is located between two major interstates, the I-5 and I-15, and provides an ideal last-mile location for future tenants to service the northern San Diego market.

North County is a premier industrial submarket for San Diego. Over the past five years, the region has seen significant tenant migration and is home to many notable distribution tenants. Given this convergence, a majority of the remaining supply is under 100,000 square feet providing a unique opportunity for this site to attract a large user in an increasingly critical distribution area.

“This transaction represents our first San Diego industrial land acquisition and aligns with Hines’ investment strategy for continued growth within the industrial and logistics sector in California,” said Eric Hepfer, managing director at Hines. “We believe this latest endeavor will be an extension of the success we’ve experienced in this market.”
