Located at 3330 Heritage Road, the property is within the South San Diego submarket, near Interstate 805, which provides easy access across the San Diego metropolitan area.

Cushman & Wakefield’s Jeffrey Cole, Jeff Chiate, Bryce Aberg, Brad Brandenburg, Zachary Harman and Mike Adey represented the developer in the investment sale element, while Voit Real Estate Services’ Michael Mossmer and Patrick Connors worked on the leasing efforts and the sale of the project.

San Diego vacancy increased

Heritage Industrial Center marks Rockefeller’s second development within South San Diego and its sale was the second deal with EQT within the past three months. In another recent deal, EQT sold a 319,336-square-foot Class A industrial property in the Northwest submarket of Indianapolis for $28.4 million.

According to a recent Cushman & Wakefield report, San Diego’s industrial vacancy rate was up 80 basis points quarter-over-quarter, as of September. This marked the third consecutive quarter of increases in vacancy. About 636,000 square feet came online in Chula Vista and Otay Mesa, but remained unleased through the third quarter.
