Titan Development (Titan) has broken ground on the first speculative industrial grade building at Westpointe40, a business park expected to become an important commerce hub in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The building will be spread over 13,989 m2 (150,574 sf) on the 43-ha (106-acre) premises of Westpointe40. Wilger Enterprises is the general contractor for the project, GBA is the architect, and Tierra West is the civil engineer.
Once developed, Westpointe40 will be within a one-minute drive of Interstate 40, a major thoroughfare for warehousing and distribution users. In addition to these users, Titan also hopes to target light manufacturing companies by adding features to the building such as rear-load configuration, 9.8-m (32-ft) clear height, dock-high and grade-level doors, and ample trailer parking.
Many major cities, including Phoenix, Denver, Las Vegas, and Oklahoma City are within an eight-hour drive of Albuquerque, making the city and Westpointe40 central to commerce within the region. The park is also near Interstate 25 and Albuquerque International Airport, and within close driving distance to most of the city’s labor force.
“With industrial vacancy rates at an all-time record low in Albuquerque, we know Westpointe40 is just one step in the right direction to creating an industrial hub in New Mexico,” says Brian Patterson, PE, senior vice-president at Titan.
