SAN DIEGO (Jan. 22, 2014) –  Murphy Development Company will commence grading in Marchat Brown Field Technology Park (BFTP), a planned 50-acre corporate industrial and office park that flanks SR-905 at the Britannia Boulevard on/off ramp adjacent to Brown Field airport in Otay Mesa.  Final maps are recorded and all entitlements have been secured for development up to 3.2 million square feet.  The property has been designed to accommodate campus users, corporate headquarters, research and development, and manufacturing uses.

The newly constructed SR-905 freeway features a diamond interchange at the entrance to the park, giving BFTP convenient access to the I-5/I-805 corridor and the South Bay Expressway (SR 125).

Brown Field Technology Park is located 20 miles from Downtown San Diego and the San Diego International Airport, and 22 miles from Kearny Mesa.  It is one of only three locations in the county that can accommodate companies in need of a campus site larger than 500,000 square feet.  Murphy Development is currently marketing the property for build-to-suit lease and sale opportunities.  For companies in need of mid-rise office or engineering space, Murphy Development has obtained approval from the San Diego Regional Airport Authority, allowing for development of six-story office buildings on the site.

“BFTP offers potential tenants state-of-the-art architectural design, exceptional landscaping, large setbacks, and LEED-inspired energy efficiency, coupled with San Diego’s lowest occupancy costs,” said R. Michael Murphy, president of Murphy Development, which has developed or master-planned nearly nine million square feet in San Diego in the past 30 years.

BFTP is just one of the exciting advances on Otay Mesa.

Last October, the San Diego City Council approved an ambitious redevelopment plan at Brown Field Municipal Airport that will include more than $900 million in planned improvements over then next 20 years. The plan includes new hangars for small and large private aircraft, an 8-10 megawatt solar field, office, commercial, and industrial space, and two hotels with retail and restaurant spaces

Construction has commenced on the cross-border terminal that will give travelers easy access to the Tijuana Airport from the U.S. side of the border. The project includes a pedestrian bridge connecting the airport to a new U.S. Customs and Border Patrol station that will be accessible only to ticketed airline passengers.

Construction has started on another major infrastructure improvement, state Route 11, a four-lane toll road that will ultimately connect a planned, new Otay Mesa border crossing with State Route 905 and State Route 125.

Murphy Development has attracted numerous Fortune 500 tenants to Otay Mesa.   The company’s 2.1 million-square-foot Siempre Viva Business Park, which is 90 percent complete, is home to a variety of high-profile tenants, including Circle Foods (a division of Tyson Foods), General Dynamics NASSCO, UPS, Iron Mountain, and Bose Corporation.
