The 75-Mile Circle: The Inland Empire
The Inland Empire is located in San Bernardino County and Riverside County. It surrounds Los Angeles and includes the Victor Valley. The Victor Valley includes the thriving communities of Apple Valley, Adelanto, Hesperia, Victorville, and Silver Lakes.
Victorville is home to the famous Southern California Logistics Airport (SCLA), which is home to many billion dollar companies such as Boeing, General Electric, Dr Pepper/Snapple, Newell Rubbermaid, and FedEx. SCLA is now poised to become one of the largest International Cargo Airports in the United States.
The Inland Empire also includes Barstow, Kramer Junction, and Newberry Springs in San Bernardino County.
One of the greatest challenges for Greater Los Angeles and Orange County will be to provide affordable housing for the workforce. A key reason is that residential land has gone through the roof in Los Angeles and Orange Counties. We believe the sky high land costs in these areas will push companies and their employees to the Inland Empire, which already has the infrastructure to support the next major metropolis in Southern California.
The Victor Valley is the jewel of the Inland Empire, and is where the next major land boom in California is already underway. The Victor Valley will likely become the new center for California’s distribution industry. Eventually the large cities in the Inland Empire will run out of room and the distribution needs of industry will probably look to the Victor Valley
