Irwindale, CA (August 2016) -
With the help of the latest technology, cities in the San Gabriel Valley will now have a robust web tool to attract retail and commercial real estate investment opportunities to a region filled with development potential.
On Thursday, August 25, San Gabriel Valley Economic Partnership will unveil a data-rich, interactive property database, SGV Economic PowerSite, to promote the regional retail commercial real estate economy and provide demographic and business resources to investors, site selectors, and brokers.
Over 15 cities, including Pasadena and San Gabriel on the west to La Verne and Claremont on the east, will showcase their designated key opportunity sites - properties that cities hope to see moved in their communities. The Partnership's PowerSite launch reception will start at 2 p.m. at Hacienda Heights Community Center, 1234 Valencia Ave, Hacienda Heights, CA 91745. Commercial real estate brokers, investors, banks, and site selectors will attend the reception with the hope of meeting the cities face-to-face and discussing investment opportunities.
The reception will kick off with remarks from Montebello Council Member Vanessa Delgado, a founding partner of Azure Development who has been an economic development professional for over 17 years and has been instrumental in creating 3.3 million square feet of retail, office and housing projects. Prior to founding Azure, Ms. Delgado spent 11 years as the director of development for Primestor Development. She was recognized by Real Estate Forum as one of California's Women of Influence in 2015.
Now, data including dynamic real estate, demographic and industry breakdowns are
available free and instantly for the Partnership's member cities and the commercial real estate community.
The PowerSite provides the following data:
- Key commercial real estate opportunity sites entered by our member cities. For example, here is City of Glendora's key opportunity sites: http://sgvpartnership.org/powersite/glendora/
- Insight into the local economy, consumer spending, and other demographic and economic data. For example, here is City of Glendora's community profile: http://sgvpartnership.org/members/glendora/
- A list of all the businesses in any of our member city (a useful tool for cities to collect business license fee revenues)
- Allows users to view, create, and print maps, find available commercial or business properties, and develop custom demographic radius reports
