Guasti, founded in 1904, was once a self-sufficient community complete with a company store, bakery, fire station, hotel, post office and the world's largest contiguous vineyard, encompassing over 5000 acres. The San Diego-based developer, Oliver-McMillan, purchased 49 acres encompassing the century-old Guasti Village and is currently working with the City of Ontario and the Ontario Redevelopment Agency to restore historic structures and develop complementary new buildings, creating an entertainment district with a mix of hospitality, retail, entertainment and, possibly residential uses in a compact walkable community setting.
Located adjacent to Guasti and the I-10 freeway between Archibald and Turner Avenues, Ontario Airport Towers are a part of the Guasti Redevelopment Project Area and are adjacent to the main entrance to LA/Ontario International Airport. The Ontario Redevelopment Agency is assisting Ontario Airport Center, LLC in the development of the first three phases of the Ontario Airport Towers Project. The first phase, a 150,000 square foot, class A office building was completed in 2008. When fully constructed the will project include two six-story and one five-story class A office buildings, a retail building and a full service hotel. Ontario Airport Center, LLC is a development partnership including the developer PGP Properties and the national office-oriented real estate investment trust RREEF.
