Construction of a speculative $110-million industrial park being developed by the Southwest Carpenters Pension Trust has begun near the junction of the 60 and 605 freeways in an unincorporated area of Los Angeles County.
Gateway Pointe Industrial Park, at the intersection of Workman Mill and Mission Mill roads, will include 1.6 million square feet of warehouse and manufacturing space, said Chris Bell, project manager for Whittier-based contractor Oltmans Construction Co. The first phase of three buildings of 950,000 square feet should be complete by November.
Catellus Development Corp. is the construction manager. Los Angeles-based Southwest Carpenters represents about 38,000 investors who are current or former union carpenters, and their families.
