Yucaipa’s Gateway West is accessed by the Yucaipa Boulevard/I-10 interchange and extends easterly along Yucaipa Boulevard to Sand Canyon Road. From this intersection, visitors can drive south to the Freeway Corridor Specific Plan or north to Crafton Hills College. Uniquely positioned at the western crossroads of Yucaipa, this area offers significant opportunities for commercial, residential, and institutional uses. The City has invested tens of millions of dollars in infrastructure within Dunlap Acres and Gateway West, upgrading streets, installing sidewalks, building parks and recreation facilities, and improving drainage channels. Streetscape improvements are also underway along Yucaipa Boulevard. With a projected tripling of campus enrollment at Crafton Hills College and its strategic location, several sites are attractive for investment.

  • Approximately 30 acres are available near the Yucaipa Boulevard and I-10 interchange. This vacant commercial site is ideal for regional and national tenants. Stater Brothers owns 10 acres. Other potential tenants could include restaurants and retail.
  • Approximately 35 acres of vacant land is located on the northern front of Yucaipa Boulevard at the Sand Canyon intersection. Properties are zoned for commercial uses and could accommodate a wide range of retail, office, and other supporting commercial uses.
  • Approximately 100 acres of predominantly vacant land is available along the southern frontage of Yucaipa Boulevard. With more than $50 million in investments in this area since 2000, this location is primed for future commercial developments.
