The 2.1 million-square-foot business park on 155 acres near the Otay Mesa Port of Entry has become home to prominent global Fortune 500 companies such as Bose, Hitachi, NYK Logistics, General Dynamics, Pioneer, Samwha, Tyson, Mattel, US Joiner, Iron Mountain, United Parcel Service, Mitsui, Ajinomoto and Mainfreight.
“We launched Siempre Viva Business Park in 2000, after pioneering corporate industrial development at San Diego Business Park and Brown Field Business Park in the ‘80s and ‘90s,” said Michael Murphy, president of Murphy Development. “Due to its corporate-quality design and landscaping, best-in-class building features, and notable users and tenants, SVBP continues to be San Diego’s most successful corporate industrial development,” he said.
