Site Description

This is an exciting opportunity to acquire two vacant parcels (.76 acre and 1.36 acre) situated on Service Road, just east of Mitchell Road, in an area poised for development resulting from the construction on an adjacent parcel of a 350,000 square feet retail center anchored by a new 187,000 square foot Super Walmart store (permits completed plan check and soon to be issued, commencing physical construction). The properties are in immediate proximity to State Route 99 with more than 105,000 VTD passing this interchange at Mitchell Road. Additionally, these parcels are located within a federal designated Opportunity Zone creating eligibility for credits against capital gains funds invested in businesses and/or property developments on these sites. The City and Caltrans are in full design of a new diverging diamond interchange to be constructed approximately 1/3 mile to the west, providing enhanced freeway access from Service Road. Contact Cary Pope, listing agent, at 209 456-6297 for more specific listing information.
