CEQA Services for Industrial Warehouses

Driven by skyrocketing e-commerce, the Inland Empire’s Industrial Warehouse market is booming!  With more than 31 million square feet of new industrial construction in the Inland Empire in 2020, and over 200 million square feet developed in the last decade, warehouse development continues to grow in the Inland Empire.

LSA Environmental Specialists have a long history of assessing issues that are unique to such opportunities.  We offer specialized analyses in:

  • California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA)
  • Transportation, Parking, and Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT)
  • Health Risk Assessments
  • Air Quality, Greenhouse Gas Emissions, and Energy
  • Sustainability
  • Noise and Vibration
  • Land Use Compatibility
  • Biological Resources
  • Cultural and Paleontological Resources

Over the last five years, LSA’s Riverside staff has provided customer-focused solutions to clients with complex development constraints and assisted Cities and Counties throughout the Inland Empire in the approval of more than 4 million square feet of warehousing. Our approach to environmental analysis includes careful assessments of community compatibility and a measured balance of environmental and infrastructure capacity with economic opportunity. Some of our warehousing experience includes:
