FAIRFIELD — Sacramento-based Buzz Oates Development is seeking city planning approvals to build two industrial buildings totaling 813,971 square feet.

Buzz Oates bought 43 acres near Cordelia and Hale Ranch roads from the city last summer for $4.5 million. This is vacant land on the edge of Suisun Marsh. At the time, the company said it wanted to build two industrial buildings there.

The Fairfield Planning Commission on Wednesday will discuss the proposed development, which is called the Solano Logistics Center. It meets at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Fairfield City Council chamber, 1000 Webster St.

One building is to be 495,569 square feet and another 318,402 square feet, a city report said. Both are to be made of tilt-up concrete panels and be 35 feet tall. The site would have 401 parking spaces and room for big-rig trailers.

Fairfield proposes to issue a mitigated negative declaration for the project, which means the developers would not have to do a much more extensive environmental impact report.

Such local rare species as the giant garter snake, California red-legged frog and valley elderberry longhorn beetle are not found at the site, the city report said. The project will include widening Cordelia Road near the property, as well as installing streetlights.

City staff recommends that the Planning Commission approve the development review and mitigated negative declaration for the project.

Fairfield bought the property in 1990 for $1.6 million from Southern Pacific railroad. The city intended to use it as a site for a corporation yard, but the plan didn’t become reality.
