McShane Construction Company has broken ground on 500 Pittsburg Avenue, a new industrial development in Richmond, California on behalf of their client, Black Creek Group, a leading real estate investment management firm. Positioned on a 34-acre site near the intersection of Pittsburg Avenue and Richmond Parkway, the development will feature a 481,500-square-foot distribution center.
“We’re excited to have another opportunity to build in the Northern California market,” shared Charlie Stone, Vice President and Regional Manager of McShane’s Western Regional Office. “The features 500 Pittsburg offers, along with its location in Richmond, make it an excellent option for businesses in the East Bay area.”
The facility will incorporate a concrete tiltwall panel exterior with storefront windows. Inside, the space will integrate a 36′ clear height with 84 truck docks, four drive-in doors, 7″ concrete slab floors and ESFR sprinklers.
Additionally, McShane will widen Richmond Parkway and Pittsburg Avenue and add turn lanes and traffic signals.
During Phase I of the project, McShane performed extensive ground improvements, including wick drains, deep dynamic compaction and grading.
McShane joined the project during the pre-construction phase where they provided oversight on budgeting, constructability review and coordinated the ground improvement strategy. By getting involved early in the process, McShane is able to help clients avoid unforeseen costs and mitigate schedule delays.
Completion of 500 Pittsburg Avenue is slated for November 2021. The architect of record is HPA, Inc.
