The High Desert is Fast Becoming the Next Metropolitan Area of Southern California

The High Desert region covers a great expanse of land and yet the cities and communities within the market are unified by promoting growth and encouraging progress.

Climate/Air Quality

The High Desert’s expansive land is bathed in sunshine nearly year ‘round – few weather events hold strong enough to reach beyond the adjacent mountain ranges. The large skies and open space allows air to flow freely, dissipating chances of smog that easily accumulate in the congested lower regions of the Inland Empire and Coastal cities.

Cost of Living & Doing Business

Still considered a tertiary market, the High Desert is affordable for residents and businesses alike.

Access/Proximity – Freeways, Railroads, Airports, Sea Ports

The High Desert Region is located approximately 90 miles east of the Port of Los Angeles, traversed by Interstate 15, Interstate 40, Hwy 395, Hwy 18, BNSF Railway and UP Railway. Southern California Logistics Airport (SCLA) provides the region with an international logistics airport and surrounding multi-tenant industrial development.

Growth Potential – Vacant Land & Population

The abundance of vacant, developable land in the region gives the High Desert the greatest potential for future growth in Southern California.

Established Industries

Many significant industries call the High Desert home, including: Aerospace, Cement, Education, Healthcare, Logistics, Manufacturing and Transportation.

Pro-Commerce

High Desert cities are growth focused, offering substantial incentives to major projects for the betterment of the region.

“[Job growth]…puts us roughly that amount over where we were before the recession. Last year we got even with 2007. This year, we’re excited it’s going up another 50,000 jobs.”

John Husing, Inland Empire Economist, Nov. 2015

“Real estate has had a very strong year. It’s still an affordable place for people to move, as far as living and commuting, and the business activity is booming. We’ve had a terrific year. They’re building warehouses on every vacant lot in San Bernardino and Riverside counties.”

Jay Prag, Professor of Economics and Finance, Claremont Graduate University, Dec. 2015

“…the Inland Empire ranks No. 3 as having the fastest growth rate, at 4.2 percent, just under San Francisco and San Jose.”
