Daikin Industries has signed two leases totaling 111,452 square feet of warehouse space across two LogistiCenters in Rohnert Park, Calif., and Verdi, Nev. Dermody Properties owns the facilities, with the latter slated for delivery in the second quarter of 2024.

Cushman & Wakefield alongside SRS Industrial represented the tenant, while DCG worked for the owner in the leasing negotiations.

The tenant, a Japanese company, is an established player in HVAC technology, specializing in air conditioning, fluorochemicals and filters to combat air pollution.

Back in 2023, the state of California announced its goal of deploying six million heat pumps by 2030. Daikin’s new leases are part of the company’s efforts to help achieve that target. According to Dermody COO Elizabeth Kauchak, Daikin will use the properties to establish a West Coast presence for its distribution and logistics operations.

Daikin’s other signed lease will take up 85,380 square feet at LogistiCenter at Interstate 80 West Phase II in Verdi, Nev., a 429,000-square-foot project first announced by the developer in 2021. According to Dermody Properties Nevada Partner John Ramous, Daikin is the first tenant to sign a lease agreement at the upcoming two-building facility.

The HVAC company’s lease places them inside building one, which will include 27 dock-high doors, 32-foot clear heights, two drive-in doors, 60-foot speed bays, as well as 105 parking spaces.
