The Mid-California International Trade District is strategically located in central California in Merced County, located just to the east and adjacent to Silicon Valley. Collocated with the Castle Airport, this location is advantaged by proximity and quick road and rail connections to San Francisco and the Bay Area and to key San Joaquin Valley urban markets such as Stockton, Modesto and Fresno. With immediate access to a labor shed of about 2.5M people and an extended labor shed of over 8M people, the MCITD is extremely well-positioned to accommodate a range of technical skill requirements.
On the site of a former Strategic Air Command Air Force Base, the MCITD is being transformed into a state-of-the-art master planned business environment for global business. The project site is a unique state of the art 2,000-acre multimodal industrial development that is designed to house about approximately 8 million square feet of modern technology-oriented industrial development.
The project’s underlying objective is to develop a next-generation eco-friendly Central California business environment due to its design, planned uses and streamlined connectivity to key supply chain points. Already home to over 60 tenants, including Google and the University of California-Merced, the project is designed to be a bustling hub of economic activity with about 10,000 people working onsite.
