New Map Highlights San Leandro Developments
San Leandro continues to build on its deep manufacturing history, and is transforming into an innovation and advanced manufacturing hub. Through a number of new projects, developers and investors are committing millions of dollars into expanding our local economy and enhancing the strong local business network. This growth is highlighted in our new San Leandro Developments map below:
Construction and development continues to boom in San Leandro. In recent years San Leandrans have seen a significant increase in investment and new construction, and this is expected to continue in future years. Since July 2017, more than $113 million in construction value has been permitted. Here are some of the projects currently under construction:
Flavored syrup manufacturer Torani is excitedly watching the construction of its new headquarters at the Marina Gateway Center at 2000 Marina Boulevard, whose walls have now been tilted up. Once constructed, developer Overton Moore will have invested $45 million in the construction of a 330,000 sf facility for Torani’s 180 employees, who will manufacture, distribute, and showcase its internationally successful product.
The new addition to the 306,000 sf Sears Outlet facility is taking shape, getting ready to welcome East Bay custom furniture manufacturer Friant at this facility, which is located at 1980 West Avenue 140th. As a part of a $18 million project, Friant will relocate its headquarters here, add a showroom and distribution hub, and bring over 150 jobs to the City.
Westlake Urban broke ground last year on its second office building at the San Leandro Tech Campus, located at 1600 Alvarado Street, near the Downtown San Leandro BART station. The second building adds 132,000 sf of Class A office space to the Downtown area. You can enjoy the beautiful plaza, with the Truth is Beauty statue, and get a glimpse of construction up-close, at the monthly Truth Thursdays event. This event by the San Leandro Improvement Association, offers food trucks, music, and activities on the fourth Thursday of the month from 5:00to 9:00pm, with the next occurring on June 28th.
DCT Industrial’s new building at 2001 Williams Street, across from 21st Amendment, is nearing completion. The developer is investing over $5 million in the building and hopes to lease this 75,000 sf building to a tenant in advanced manufacturing or food processing.
Next week, developer Trammell Crow aims to begin tilt-up of the first of the three buildings that will make up the San Leandro Business Center, which will add over 550,000 sf of Class A industrial space at 100 Halcyon Drive — the former home of the Kraft/Yuban plant that closed in 2016. The developer will invest nearly $80 million in this venture, with a potential for 500 jobs, and plans to enhance the buildings with large mural art and new landscaping.
The modular construction of La Vereda, the sister facility of Marea Alta (the 115 units of affordable housing completed last year) is also moving along, and hoping for completion of the 85 senior apartment units late in the year. The application period for the senior apartments ended on March 23.
