McShane has completed construction at 500 Pittsburg in Richmond, California, for its client, a fund managed by a subsidiary of Ares Management Corporation, which acquired Black Creek Group’s U.S. real estate investment advisory and distribution business on July 1, 2021. Positioned on a 34-acre site near the intersection of Pittsburg Avenue and Richmond Parkway, the new distribution center incorporates 481,487 square feet.
“We’re pleased to deliver a state-of-the-art industrial facility to our client on time and on budget despite the industry headwinds that continue to persist,” commented Ed Rodriguez, Director of Project Management at McShane. “500 Pittsburg provides modern features and a great location in the East Bay Area and will serve the client and future tenants well.”
The development features a concrete tilt-up panel exterior with storefront windows. Inside, the space integrates a 36′ clear height with 84 truck docks, four drive-in doors, 7″ concrete slab floors and ESFR sprinklers.
McShane also completed a 4,788-square-foot speculative office build-out for a future tenant including open office space, private offices, a conference room and a break room. Finishes throughout the office space meet the client’s national standards and include quartz countertops throughout.
Additionally, the firm widened Richmond Parkway and Pittsburg Avenue, adding turn lanes and new traffic signals.
During Phase I of the project, McShane performed extensive ground improvements, including wick drains, deep dynamic compaction and grading.
HPA Inc. provided architectural services for the project.
