  • Trader Joe’s will build a 1.03 million-square-foot food assembly and distribution center in Palmdale, California, the city announced last week.
  • The Palmdale project will feature a 827,000-square-foot hub, a 211,000-square-foot freezer building and a 6,000-square-foot accessory building.
  • Construction of the 104-acre site will commence this year and employ nearly 1,000 workers.

Dive Insight:

Trader Joe’s expects to start work on the 104-acre site in December and complete the logistics center in the fourth quarter of 2024, according to The Orange County Register.

The city of Palmdale noted that it included several conditions of approval, such as road improvements and bike path construction, as part of the project’s entitlement process.

“The project aligns with the City’s commitment to economic vitality, innovation and job creation and catalyzes additional industrial development in Palmdale,” Palmdale Mayor Laura Bettencourt said in the announcement.

Earlier this year, Trader Joe’s announced it’s building a similarly sized assembly and distribution center in Kentucky that’s projected to begin turning out products this fall, according to local reports.
