The Boeing Company has signed a $1.8 mil, 36-month lease for 100k sf of space at the Southern California Logistics Airport (SCLA) campus in the city of Victorville. The aerospace company’s lease includes 10k sf of office space and 90k sf of hanger space at SCLA’s Hangar 678. The deal includes three, three-year options that could bring the lease total to $8.3 mil over the next 12 years.
A tenant at SCLA since 2003, Boeing’s long-term occupancy of Hangar 678 enables the company to centralize three of its growing operating divisions: Boeing Capital, Boeing AOG and Boeing Flight Test. SCLA’s Hangar 678 serves as a facility for aircraft transition and modification services, including modification with upgraded electronics and inflight entertainment, as well as structural repairs for Boeing customers from around the world. Additionally, the facility serves as a hub for Boeing’s instillation of buyer furnished equipment on new aircraft.
The extension of Boeing’s lease represents continued growth for SCLA, also exemplified by other long-term customers such as Plastipak Packaging Inc, a global leader in product packaging, which is currently in the fifth year of its nine-year lease. Plastipak customers include Procter & Gamble, Pepsi, Kraft Foods, Kroger and Tropicana. Other notable companies located at SCLA include Newell Rubbermaid and GE Transportation.
