'Spec' industrial projects coming to city's southwest

Crossroads Business Park

The Wonderful Co. is planning to build a series of industrial buildings southwest of Gosford and Harris roads. Crossroads Business Park is proposed to include a few speculative buildings, meaning new structures for which tenants have not been identified, to serve what observers call a tight market for such property.

Kern's growing reputation as a place for industrial activity has persuaded a developer to consider building new warehouse properties of varying sizes in southwest Bakersfield — even without first identifying tenants ready to move in.

Los Angeles-based The Wonderful Co., a grower and real estate developer active in Kern, has begun marketing the next phase of Crossroads Business Park southwest of Gosford and Harris roads that will include at least four buildings without pre-signed tenants.
