A High Value Alternative

For businesses seeking a strong presence in Southern California, Lancaster offers abundant commercial and industrial property at very afford able prices. The well-respected Kosmont-Rose Institute survey consistently ranks Lancaster among Los Angeles County’s low-cost leaders. In addition, a recent CBRE report noted that many southland firms are currently looking north for new expansion opportunities.

Since Lancaster continues to offer some of the most affordable housing in the State of California, many workers can still afford to live, as well as work, in Lancaster. The current median home in the City of Lancaster is only $180,000 - just a fraction of the $520,000 average housing price for Los Angeles County. With an average family household income of $82,609, Lancaster has a high percentage of resident homeowners, leading to a more stable workforce, stronger sense of community and a less transient-oriented population base.

Located just an hour north of Los Angeles, the City has improved sites ready for rapid development, large parcels for distribution centers, as well as a variety of multi-tenant spec and build-to-suit opportunities, all with significant price advantages.

Gain proximity to all of Southern California while controlling costs and attaining a competitive edge with a City that is on your side. Make your next move to Lancaster.
