International Park of Commerce
The International Park of Commerce is a fully entitled, 1,800-acre master-planned industrial development in Tracy. At full build-out, IPC will be one of California’s largest industrial parks.
Kier & Wright provided extensive land use planning services for the development, prepared infrastructure master plans for the project area, and provided subdivision mapping services needed to develop the project area. To support IPC’s in-progress first phase, Kier & Wright has prepared plans for nearly $100 million of constructed public infrastructure and has provided site-specific civil engineering plans for the construction of an approximate total of 10 million square feet of industrial space.
IPC is included within the Cordes Ranch Specific Plan, a City of Tracy land use plan consisting of industrial space, commercial and office space, land for park and recreational use, and extensive street and utility infrastructure.
As the lead engineering consultant during the development of the Cordes Ranch Specific Plan, Kier & Wright prepared maps, calculations, studies, construction cost analyses, and preliminary infrastructure design published in the land use plan. Kier & Wright worked closely with the planning architect, environmental and traffic consultants, and the City of Tracy to develop the infrastructure cost-sharing program and the sustainable design measures described in the plan.
Approvals associated with the specific plan included a City resolution to annex Cordes Ranch, a nearly 1,800-acre area of San Joaquin County land that was outside of the City of Tracy’s boundaries. Kier & Wright prepared the boundary description and mapping exhibits used in the City of Tracy’s annexation proposal and provided the County with the final annexation map.
At its completion, IPC’s first construction phase will include approximately 600 acres of net new development. Kier & Wright provided infrastructure master planning services for Phase 1 and is responsible for managing the progression of public infrastructure improvements needed to support the construction of Phase 1 industrial sites.
Kier & Wright continues to prepare construction plans for infrastructure improvements associated with IPC. So far, Kier & Wright’s Phase 1 public infrastructure scope has included design of more than eight miles of new road and over 1.5 miles of improvements along pre-existing roads, plans for a 2 million-gallon water tank with an associated pump station, plans for approximately two miles of new municipal water line, design of five detention basins, design of several miles of storm drain system, and plans for two new bridges crossing the Delta-Mendota Canal on W. Schulte Road and International Parkway.
Kier & Wright has provided site-specific design and surveying services for more than a dozen IPC warehouse and logistics facilities. Constructed facilities include a 1 million-square-foot Amazon fulfillment center on 55 acres, a 1 million-square-foot Medline distribution center on 56 acres, a Lindt distribution center, two multi-tenant warehouse facilities, a Zinus distribution center, and a Smucker’s distribution center.
