Newmark announces it has arranged a 373,771-square-foot lease on behalf of Ricoh USA, Inc., an information management and digital services company, at a distribution facility in the Inland Empire.
Newmark’s Senior Managing Directors Matt Moore, Wills Allen and Wes Hunnicutt have worked with Ricoh for the past four years and advised the tenant in its relocation to Rialto. Newmark’s Global Corporate Services Global Strategy team represents Ricoh nationwide. The landlord, Prologis, was represented by Colliers.
“Ricoh began the search for a modern facility that meets the company’s needs for the future – focusing on optimizing their process flows with an updated layout as well as improving their infrastructure with more dock doors and a large truck court,” said Moore. “Ricoh looked to the Inland Empire, and we were able to identify several options that fulfilled their needs.”
Located at 1920 West Baseline Road in Rialto, the building features 32-foot clearance height, skylights, 49 dock high loading doors and 69 trailers parking spaces. Ricoh plans to use the warehouse for light assembly and distribution.
According to Newmark Research, the Inland Empire industrial market’s net absorption reached 24.6 million square feet in 2020, on par with 2019’s total. Vacancy has remained below five percent for 34 consecutive quarters, despite the 152.5 million square feet in construction deliveries over this period. The forecast for 2021 is very bullish, based on the IE’s current market fundamentals and the progressive recovery in local and national labor markets.
