The Redding City Council has approved the sale of Stillwater Business Park Lot 7 to Lassen Canyon Nurseries, a global supplier of strawberry plants in California, Mexico and China. Headquartered in Shasta County for over 50 years, Lassen Canyon Nurseries plans to expand their operations to the 16.75 acre lot. A new 40,000+ square feet facility will contain their corporate offices as well as increased laboratory, warehouse and cold storage space. According to company owners, Liz Elwood-Ponce and Kenneth Elwood, the expansion could double the size of their current operations within 2 years.
“We could not ask for a better first tenant in the park- a local company with extensive global markets who has taken full advantage of the resources in our region to create spectacular growth. They are a great model to demonstrate why others can and will succeed at Stillwater BP” says Mark Lascelles, President of the Shasta EDC.
This past year the EDC has seen an increase of both local and international companies looking for available sites. Fifty million people within 24 hour delivery, completed infrastructure, and streamlined permitting make Stillwater Business Park an attractive option for relocation and expansion.
Known as the greenfield gem of Northern California, Stillwater Business Park is a 700 acre industrial park with fully entitled parcels ranging from 5-100 acres and larger. Developed by the City of Redding, it is the largest of four California state-certified sites that offer completed EIR report, all federal and state approved permits, completed infrastructure, including roads, bridges and utilities, and flexible planned development zoning in place. The property is managed by the City of Redding and marketed in partnership with the Shasta EDC and VOIT Real Estate.
