A 40.6-million-square-foot warehouse project in Southern California is set to break ground later this year after more than 10 years of discussions and lawsuits, according to a report from the Riverside Press-Enterprise.
The World Logistics Center — which will be one of the world’s largest such centers — was first proposed in 2012 and approved three years later by city officials in Moreno Valley, located about 65 miles east of Los Angeles.
Highland Fairview, the center’s developer, told the Press-Enterprise March 8 that construction will begin near the end of 2023.
The center is expected to have 27 buildings and could create more than 33,000 construction and operations jobs.
Plans include rooftop solar panels and more than 1,000 charging stations for freight vehicles, employees and visitors, according to a news release.
