Sudberry Properties has started construction on a mixed-use industrial development on 50 acres less than a mile east of Interstate 5.
The 409,500-sq.-ft. Otay River Business Park is located on a nearly 50-acre site in the prime Otay Mesa area of Chula Vista.
The undeveloped site is bordered on the west by Broadway, on the north by Main St., on the east by Fourth Ave. and on the south by the Otay Valley Regional Park.
Sudberry president Colton Sudberry said that the multi-phase project will consist of seven industrial buildings ranging from 40,000 to 67,500 sq. ft. and about 5,000 sq. ft. of retail services, including a car wash and 7-Eleven.
The business park, which lies on the site of a former strawberry field and concrete plant, will be developed in phases over the next few years. First, the industrial and commercial areas will be developed; then the 13.9-acre City of Chula Vista public park. Approximately six acres is planned to be left as open space.
The development team includes SCA Architecture of San Diego, Lightfoot Planning Group of Carlsbad, and Ridge Landscape Architects (RLA) of Irvine. Sitework and grading are underway by Southland Paving.
Sudberry is in the process of selecting the general contractor. Sudberry will own and operate the business park.
