The industrial real estate market in Stanislaus and San Joaquin counties is growing, and the 1,528-acre Crows Landing Industrial Business Park (CLIB) is poised for development!
The demand for available space in the Central Valley continues, but few sites are available in the Central Valley that can provide large industrial building sites (i.e., greater than 1M square feet). The CLIBP offers variably sized development sites—including large sites—that will lead to strong year-over-year employment growth and the creation of up to 15,000 new locally based jobs.
Proposed Land Uses
The CLIBP provides a mix of land use classifications while remaining flexible in terms of the size and configuration of available parcels, vertical development, and compatibility with surrounding uses and infrastructure. General land uses envisioned for the 1,528-acre site include:
More specific land uses envisioned for the site include worker-support services such as: transit opportunities, alternative transportation options (pedestrian and bicycle facilities), on-site food service, appropriately located day-care facilities, on-site training, and automated banking opportunities.
A Flexible Approach
Although the need for industrial/business park real estate is likely to remain steady throughout the approximately 30-year CLIBP site buildout period, the County understands that the size, location, and configuration needs of individual site tenants will vary over time based on market fluctuations, new technology, and other factors.
To provide the flexibility necessary to accommodate a variety of tenants, the County has identified a three-phased approach to site development. Although the County has identified general areas throughout the site to support the envisioned land uses, it does not plan to identify specific parcels. Rather, it will enable orderly infrastructure development while maintaining opportunities to meet the specific needs and constraints of individual tenants and their pursuits.
Based on the site’s proximity to I-5, the County anticipates that site development will occur first in the southern portion of the site adjacent to Fink Road, as this area offers direct access to I-5. Development is anticipated to extend northward across the site.
Five general areas were identified or development:
The County will allow development phasing, parcel sizes, and locations to remain flexible as possible, so that site development remains possible in virtually any portion of the site and at any time following the receipt of environmental approvals, mitigation, and necessary infrastructure. Should a potential tenant request to develop a portion of the site prior to the phases identified below, the County would negotiate with the applicant and strive to meet specific tenant needs.
Phase 1 - Initial Site Development: Present to 2026
Phase 1 development is envisioned in the southernmost area of the CLIBP, which is nearest to I-5, and includes initial airport development. CLIBP development would occur on approximately 764 acres including:
Approximately 5,300 jobs could be realized during Phase 1.
Stanislaus County will provide for the construction of initial infrastructure during Phase 1. To facilitate site development, infrastructure will be initiated in the area identified as the Fink Road Corridor during Phase 1A, and in the Bell Road Corridor during Phase 1B.
Phase 1A - Present to 2020
Development is likely to occur adjacent to Fink Road due to its proximity to I-5. CLIPB development is envisioned on 103 acres including:
Approximately 1,300 jobs could be realized during Phase 1A.
Phase 1B – 2021 to 2026
Site Development is envisioned to extend northward from the Fink Road Corridor and extend through the Bell Road Corridor during Phase 1 B. Airport construction will also begin. Development would occur on approximately 661 acres and include:
Approximately 4,000 jobs could be realized during Phase 1 B.
Phase 2: 2027 to 2036
Phase 2 development is envisioned in the central portion of the site. Additional facilities would be developed in the Highway 33 Corridor north of the airport during Phase 2, along with airport improvements and the development of Public Facilities. Infrastructure and roadway improvements would be provided to support anticipated development on 190 acres including:
Approximately 3,500 to 4,000 jobs could be realized during Phase 2.
Phase 3: 2037 to 2046 (or sooner!)
Phase 3 is envisioned in the northernmost part of the site, where businesses can capitalize on their proximity to Highway 33. Ongoing infrastructure and roadway improvements would be provided to support anticipated development on 274 acres including:
Approximately 5,000 to 5,200 jobs could be realized during Phase 3.
CLIBP development promises to benefit the current residents of Stanislaus County and future generations. While progress will be ongoing, the County has undertaken an aggressive approach to permitting and infrastructure development. Environmental investigations and public outreach are underway.
Stanislaus County is interested in meeting the diverse needs of the development community. We want to help generate jobs locally, and we understand that the best way to do that is to help new tenants and businesses become successful. We are willing to engage in creative and synergistic partnerships to help you achieve your goals.
