We formed PACIFIC INDUSTRIAL with a clear vision to create a company that broke the traditional build & sell model prevalent in private real estate companies. The concept was centered around one key principle – to create an alignment of interests. With that simple objective, we designed an environment where common goals produce development and acquisition sites that are accretive to any long term portfolio. The alignment produces a benefit to our capital partners, helps attract best in class tenants, and ultimately facilitates developments that can withstand any business cycle. As a result, we assembled a portfolio of irreplaceable, leased assets and developed a culture that empowers individuals to do the right thing at all turns in order to create a superior end product. The initial concept was simple, without question, but we feel the results speak for themselves and we look forward to maintaining an alignment of interests for many years to come.
