Barstow Seeing Uptick in Retail & Commercial Activity

As stated in an article in the Victorville Daily Press, December 3, 2016, a local commercial real estate broker said activity in the entire High Desert is picking up, but he particularly likes what he’s seeing in Barstow. There’s an uptick in the retail market,” he said. “Commercial development in Barstow has noticeably improved over the second half of 2016” according to Barstow’s economic development and planning manager, Gaither Loewenstein. He said, “Construction of a 63-room Best Western Plus hotel in the Lenwood area is currently underway, with a 106-unit Hilton Home2Suites hotel to follow shortly thereafter. Along the Main Street/Route 66 corridor, plans for a Fairfield Inn hotel are expected to be submitted and a national retail chain will be announcing a store opening soon.” Recent activity along Main Street in the past six months has involved both small and large developments.
