  • Dalfen Industrial, the nation’s largest buyer of industrial real estate, has purchased a brand-new, 95,922-square-foot industrial building in Moreno Valley. 
  • The Inland Empire has the highest year-over-year growth of any region in the nation, solidifying its position as one of the most attractive markets for institutional investment.

What’s Dalfen Industrial?

Dalfen has acquired 12 industrial buildings since it first entered the California market two years ago.

Dalfen Industrial is a pioneer in the last-mile commercial real estate market and one of the country’s largest industrial property buyers. They concentrate their investments on well-placed urban infill warehouses and distribution facilities. Across the United States, Dalfen owns and manages top industrial properties totaling millions of square feet.

Ideal Location: Situated Near Transport Hubs

The distance from Moreno Valley Logistics Center to I-215 is less than three miles. Its proximity to SR-CA-60 and SR-91 also allows for east-west communication, including to the Port of Long Beach/Port of Los Angeles, which is located about 70 miles to the west. 

Over 40% of all US imports pass through the twin ports, and the Inland Empire’s warehouse stock is crucial to the country’s supply chain. FedEx, Walgreens, Amazon, Lowe’s, and Harbor Freight are a few notable tenants in the vicinity.

The I-215 Freeway system provides unprecedented access to Southern California’s population centers and the larger Southwest from this top-notch property. Due to the Inland Empire’s market rent growth, which is the nation’s best, the in-place revenue delivers immediate cash flow with significant potential upside.

“Our Nandina Avenue acquisition features all of the physical attributes that today’s tenants are seeking, and we’re excited to expand our footprint in the Inland Empire. We are eager to acquire more functional and modern buildings as new product delivery tapers off in the near term,” adds Willis Fries, Dalfen’s Market Lead for the Inland Empire and Los Angeles.
