Opportunity High Desert (OHD) is a regional powerhouse of five incorporated communities located along I-15 in California’s Inland Empire.
These communities, Adelanto, Apple Valley, Barstow, Hesperia and Victorville, along with nearby unincorporated areas, encompass a regional geography that extends well beyond each city’s limits. If OHD were a city, its population of 443,000 would make it the 8th largest city in California.
As a location for logistics and manufacturing, OHD provides an excellent transportation grid serving regional and national markets, offering access to air, rail and key Southern California transportation corridors. In addition to affordable, available land, and a strong local workforce, businesses in the region also find lower operating costs than elsewhere in California.
A retail potential of more than $5.3B defines OHD’s strength as a regional consumer market. Retailers and restaurants continue their foothold in the OHD region and the demand for the stores and eateries craved by its residents continues unabated.
Freeway and non-freeway oriented sites can be found in each community with space available for a variety of land uses. Low vacancy rates, new infrastructure projects and housing starts once again are hallmarks of a recovering regional economy on the threshold of expansion.
