COMPTON, CA—Trammell Crow Co. has broken ground on the Brickyard, a two-building, 1-million-square-foot industrial property in Compton, CA. The developer is building the property with its joint venture partner Principal Real Estate Investors. The property is scheduled to open in July 2016.

“As a rule, we try to develop the best buildings in the best locations—but rarely is that proposal as obvious as it is with the Brickyard,” Greg Ames, managing director in Trammell Crow Co.’s SoCal, Los Angeles office, tells “A lot of people see us as a better, closer, more cost effective option than the Inland Empire.  We understand that it doesn’t make sense to move product two hours away, and then turn around and haul it all the way back to its actual destination – if and only if there is a better alternative.  As a result, we designed the Brickyard specifically to meet the needs of high throughput users, with low coverage, excess parking, and the ability to fully secure the site.  The truth though, is that this development is probably equally compelling for a number of operators who are already in South Bay, who are outgrowing their space, or even those who are divided up into two, three, four, or sometimes more buildings just due to lack of supply of larger buildings.  So as a development, there is demand for The Brickyard coming from a lot of directions; the appeal is wide – and we are excited to deliver it in summer of 2016.”
