Canyon Point Earns LEED Gold
Canyon Point, SARES•REGIS Group’s development of three super-premium industrial buildings totaling 120,000 square feet in Anaheim, has received LEED Gold certification from the United States Green Building Council. One building totaling 31,744 square feet remains available for sale or lease.
“Developing real estate to high sustainable standards is important to us, and the success of Canyon Point proves that it matters to companies needing state-of-the-art industrial facilities. Environmentally sound design and construction one day will be commonplace. But we’re proud to have developed the first speculative LEED Gold industrial project in Orange County,” said John Hagestad, managing director at SARES•REGIS Group of Irvine, Calif.
Two of the buildings sold before the project was completed last fall. Woongjin Chemical America, a South Korean maker of water purification equipment for industrial use, purchased the first building, fulfilling a corporate mandate to buy or lease green facilities, Hagestad said. The building is 32,554, square feet. The price was $4.5 million.
A larger building, totaling 57,593 square feet, was acquired by Chinese cabinet and tile distributor HSJQ for $7.4 million.
Canyon Point received 26 design points and 13 points for construction from the USGBC, which presented the development the second highest LEED certification award, said Patrick Russell, senior vice president in SRG’s Commercial Development Division.
The three buildings are situated on 6.3 acres at the southeast corner at Miraloma Avenue and Miller Street in the Anaheim Canyon technology district.
Key features in the high-image buildings make them unique among small buildings in the Orange County marketplace, Russell said. They have 30-foot clear heights making them ideal for the most modern racking systems. They also have ESFR (early suppression, fast response) sprinklers, true dock-high loading and 130-foot concrete truck courts. These are features found mainly in state-of-the-art “big box” buildings in the Inland Empire but rare in Orange County, he said.
Additionally, each building has 4,700 square feet of built-out office and mezzanine space that includes large bay windows for viewing the warehouse area, Russell said.
Canyon Point is near Southern California’s three major airports and key freeway hubs, including the 91, 57 and 55 freeways. It also is near the expanding Anaheim Canyon Metrolink station.
