Construction has gone vertical at Ridgeline Property Group’s Class A Midway Commerce Center in Vacaville, Calif. Ridgeline is developing the project with capital partner and real estate investment manager USAA Real Estate.
Vacaville is in Solano County, roughly halfway between San Francisco and Sacramento. The 89.7-acre logistics park is on Eubanks Drive, a mile from the Midway Road and I-505 interchange, and has quick access to I-80.
Walls are in place and the roof deck is being installed on the 1.5 million-square-foot park’s largest structure. Building C is an approximately 1.2 million-square-foot, cross-dock facility with a 42-foot clear height and hydraulic dock levels at all 209 positions.
Wall panels are going up at Building A, a 198,490-square-foot rear-loading facility with a 36-foot clear height and mechanical dock levers at every other position.
