All I want for Christmas is… 82,000 square feet of top-of-the-line industrial space!
On December 7th, ATISA unveiled DORADA, the newest in a string of Class A industrial buildings. Dorada is ATISA’s second largest building project this year (after the gargantuan Diamante building) and the last to be completed of ATISA’s ambitious 2018 building schedule. It has 86,214 square feet of leasable space and sits on a 156,733 square foot lot. It’s clear height is 28 feet and it has 6 dock doors. As is true with all Atisa buildings, modifications can tailor the building to just about any operation.
The ribbon was cut by Rafael Omar Carrillo and the construction team. Visitors from NAI Mexico, Tecma, Corporativo Aragón, PCM Corporativo, Omega Capital and BRP attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony, and participated in a chance to win an iPad, Google home speakers, and 2 bottles of fine wine from nearby Magoni Vineyards in Ensenada. The guests utterly destroyed a colorful piñata with gleeful abandon!
Javier Payán, Tijuana’s Economic Development Director, who is in charge of implementing strategic plans to effectively promote investment, the expansion of companies and the forging of stronger international relationships, delivered a riveting speech titled Tijuana: The Door to America. Tijuana has grown exponentially and has generated many investment opportunities in the last few years. Our lovely city is #1 in North America regarding the generation of job positions in the medical device production sector, and has more aerospace and defense companies than any other city in Mexico. An amazing 21% of Tijuana’s college graduates are engineers, the majority of them with degrees in aerospace, automotive, medical, and electronics. Payán filled us in on CONACYT (which promotes Science and Technology) and PROSOFT (which supports the development of software companies).
Payán’s goal is to boost the primary clusters in this city, and help them function at their full potential. He makes it easier for investors to get the necessary requirements to open a company in Tijuana. He talked about the municipal funds that are going towards equipment acquisition, which will in turn impulse self-employment, small companies, entrepreneurs, and strategic projects.
Rick Chatham, ATISA’s Director of Sales and Marketing, shared the stage with Ana Del Real, as they recounted the thrilling history of ATISA Industrial, as well as its bright future as the premier industrial real estate broker in Tijuana and Northern Baja Mexico. As of 2015, Atisa’s industrial real estate division had constructed over 1,600 acres of industrial land and built over 200 buildings including more than 25,000,000 square feet of industrial space. Atisa has dealt with fortune 500 companies from around the world and from all industrial categories. In 2019, ATISA will continue to grow, as Chatham announced that for the first time, ATISA will begin working on major developments outside the park, beginning with Otay Mesa, then expanding to Tijuana East Park, with Rosarito and Ensenada on the radar.
Get it while it’s hot! ATISA’s other new building, VIOLETA, was planned as part of this grand opening ceremony, but, due to Tijuana’s hot industrial real estate market and the quality of ATISA’s buildings, VIOLETA was leased even before construction was finished.
