ProLogis, a leading global provider of distribution facilities, announced 5 January 2009 that it has leased approximately 26,200 square meters in Ontario, California, to Safelite AutoGlass, the leading US provider of vehicle glass repair and replacement services. Safelite will occupy space at ProLogis Park Ontario Airport, in a newly constructed, 63,266-square-meter facility. The park is located off Interstate 15 midway between Interstate 10 and the Pomona Freeway, minutes from the Ontario International Airport. Safelite occupies space with ProLogis in various locations across North America; the transaction is the fifth between the two companies. “The Inland Empire West submarket provides excellent regional access to Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego, as well as Arizona and Nevada,” said Mike Del Santo, first vice president and market officer for ProLogis. “The area offers a strong pro-business climate, supporting the operations of many large-scale logistics users, in addition to excellent freeway access, rail service and available labor. Due to its proximity to the Los Angeles Basin, this submarket continues to be the first choice among many of our customers in the region”.
