IAC Commerce Center to bring up to 2,600 jobs to the SCV.
We talk a lot about how great it is to live in the Santa Clarita Valley. The amenities, housing choices, schools, shopping, and commuter access are only some of the reasons many home buyers move here to raise their families.
Taking it one step further, Santa Clarita is also a great place for businesses to settle as well. Most recently, citrus fruit giant Sunkist relocated their headquarters to Valencia from Sherman Oaks, bringing along with it over 200 jobs that are now firmly planted in our valley.
Why is Santa Clarita becoming known as a business friendly community? According to Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich:
“You don’t have the business tax and a lot of regulations that are anti-jobs in the Santa Clarita Valley. You have regulations that encourage development and job creation.“
The latest addition to the spectrum of opportunities for business relocation lies in the groundbreaking of the new IAC Commerce Center. Taking up about 116 acres near Highway 126 and Commerce Center Drive, this center will offer business space ranging from 60,000-250,000 square feet; meaning they’re definitely looking for medium to large sized corporations. City Councilman TimBen Boydston added:
“Whenever you create space that’s industrial space, manufacturing space or commercial space, that generates jobs and that’s the most important thing. We have a huge demand in Santa Clarita Valley for more industrial space, light industrial space and business park space.”
Once completed and occupied, the IAC Commerce Center hopes to generate 2,600 jobs, giving Santa Clarita residents the opportunity to work where they live.
