OMP-Cushman Wakefield Building Advanced Manufacturing Complex in Newark, California

Overton Moore Properties and Cushman and Wakefield started construction on its Morton Commerce Center, a four-building, 605,000 square foot advanced manufacturing development project in Newark, California.

According to company officials the project is a result of “anticipating continued demand for brand-new industrial advanced manufacturing space and the long-term strengths of the San Francisco Bay Area Industrial market.”

"Morton Commerce Center is a next generation manufacturing/industrial project that will stand out from the aging existing building stock with its employee friendly amenities, flexible configurations and modern architecture. The first lease at the project is a great example of how the project fits the market," said John McManus of Cushman & Wakefield.

In December of 2017, OMP purchased the 29 acre site from Morton Salt. The project is already 37% leased, with Building Four (225,679 SF) having been pre-leased to a leading social media/networking company. Morton Commerce Center has been designed with features to accommodate a wide variety of businesses.

Project features include 30'-32' clear heights, ESFR fire suppression, additional power capacity, large truck courts that can be converted into extra parking for companies with heavy employee counts, natural gas, and solar ready roof structures. Located only five minutes from Interstate 880 and the Dumbarton Bridge (CA Hwy 84), Morton Commerce Center's strategic Newark location can attract users from the Peninsula, Silicon Valley, and the greater East Bay.

Morton Commerce Center is OMP's third development project in the San Francisco East Bay, which makes the company one of the largest industrial developers in the 880 Corridor submarket since 2008, measured by square footage, number of buildings and total projects.
