The McClellan Air Force base once supplied major logistical, repair and maintenance support on the West Coast for World War II, The Korean War, The Vietnam War and Operation Desert Shield/Storm. After being bid out by Hill Air Force Base in Ogden, Utah to perform aircraft overhauls, the base officially closed in 2001. In 2000, IRG purchase the California facility, which included 8.5 million square feet and 3,000 acres of land.
IRG invested more than $200 Million into revitalizing the site and aligning it as McClellan Park. The real estate team leased up many of the property’s vacancies. The more than 240 companies which moved to the park in Sacramento brought employment for 14,000 individuals. The property now features 155 industrial buildings and 35 warehouses. Of those buildings, IRG operates industrial/office space, air museum, chapel, dormitories, hotel, conference center, recreational facilities and an airport. IRG continues to indirectly aid the base by managing $1.2 Billion in environmental remediation work. After millions of dollars in renovation and environmental remediation, McClellan Park is now widely considered the national gold-standard for large military base reuse.
