Headquartered in Los Angeles County in Gardena, California, Overton Moore Properties is a full-service commercial real estate company that offers asset management; tenant relations; leasing and marketing; asset re-positioning; entitlement; built-to-suit; pre-development; and construction management services. Founded in 1972, the company prioritizes service, value, and quality in its projects and works to over-deliver to cultivate lasting relationships with its communities, investors, clients, and employees. The new Bay Area-based Morton Commerce Center is one such project Overton Moore has delivered with quality and value, and it was Big-D that was hired to do the work. The project began in September 2018 and was successfully completed in June 2020.
The 604,796-square-foot, $51.2-million industrial development is comprised of four state-of-the-art buildings that were constructed for flexibility and built with the ability to “super park” for companies with large numbers of employees. Big-D equipped each building with skylights for ample natural light; exterior workspaces to encourage productivity and employee collaboration; extensive glass lines for heavy manufacturing use; heavy power; an ESFR sprinkler system; 32-foot clear height and numerous dock doors; spacious parking; and roofs with 100% solar capacity.
