13620 Live Oak Lane - Irwindale Gateway Specific Plan

Project Description

The Irwindale Gateway Specific Plan is a proposed development of an industrial logistics and distribution center and associated parking and loading docks. The majority of the project site (APN 8532-002-044) is a former sand and gravel quarry that ceased operation in the late 1980s and a former inert landfill, for which fill and restoration operations were authorized in 1994 and completed in 2006. Former uses for the rest of the project site (APN 8532-002-035) include a retention pond for the adjacent quarry operations, material and vehicle storage, and commercial development for a street cleaning business. The project site is currently a vacant lot that is used for a variety of industrial and commercial uses as well as stockpiled materials and debris. 

The Specific Plan area encompasses 68.1 acres in Irwindale and would be designated Specific Plan. The proposed project would redevelop the project site with three new industrial buildings providing a maximum of 982,796 square feet of building space—954,796 square feet of warehouse space and 28,000 square feet of office space (Option 1). A variety of general warehousing and manufacturing tenants could be accommodated in the three buildings. The proposed project would include a total of 918 standard vehicle parking spaces and 346 trailer parking spaces. The proposed project would also include approximately 253,736 square feet (5.8 acres) of landscaping.

The project applicant proposes a second development option that includes two industrial buildings with a maximum of 704,070 square feet—668,070 square feet of warehouse space, 36,000 square feet of office space, and a 400-megawatt battery energy storage system (BESS) on approximately 16 acres (Option 2). The preliminary design for the BESS includes 890 metal enclosures (712 containers and 178 augmentation containers) measuring 8’-10” high by 29’-11” long by 5’-5” wide, housing lithium-ion batteries, 100 power conversion systems and medium voltage transformers, and one substation. Batteries could be double stacked, which would require a higher metal enclosure but take up less space. Parking for this option would consist of 617 standard vehicle spaces and 257 trailer spaces, and landscaping would cover 185,782 square feet (4.3 acres). 

One of the two options would be the end use for the project site after reclaiming the property.
