WHITTIER, CA-Whittier-based Oltmans Construction Co. has commenced work on a $30 million expansion that is being built for Footstar, the national footwear retailer.

The 168,000-sf warehouse addition will rise in Mira Loma, adjacent to Footstar’s existing 350,000-sf facility. It will feature a highly automated cross dock facility and a 90,000-sf “pop-out” portion in the center of the structure. This “pop-out” area will have a 50-ft clear height to accommodate high mast forklifts.

The concrete tilt-up will also include a two-story parking structure and 30,000 sf of office space. The office space will contain a lounge and a health suite equipped with free weights, Lifecycle and a multi-purpose court for basketball, racquetball and volleyball. A raised floor training area will also be built, which will double as a site for regular “family night” movie events, says Todd Larson, senior director of operations for Footstar.

“We believe we are setting a standard for construction, design and quality of workplace amenities,” Larson says. “We did not want to build horizontally because land is so valuable in this region…In the process, we created secure parking for cars and reduced walking distance for over 100 employees.”

Designed by Bel Air, MD-based Frederick Ward Associates, the facility will rise at 3355 Dulles Dr. Completion is slated for January 2003.
