Historic Guasti District - Ontario, CA
A Look Back Towards the Future
Situated at the base of the San Bernardino Mountains, Ontario is located in the midst of Southern California's most accessible highways in the Inland Empire at the junction of the 10 (San Bernadino), 15 (Ontario) and 60 (Pomona) Freeways. The city is positioned amid some of Southern California's most crucial transportation thoroughfares in road, rail and air travel, and is home to LA-Ontario International Airport, making Ontario a true transportation hub in Southern California. With employment and payroll nearly doubling in the past ten years, Ontario is suited for some of the most exciting developments in the Inland Empire pipeline, including Guasti, a 50 acre mixed-use development located directly between Interstate 10 and the Ontario International Airport.
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. Home to the Guasti Mansion and adjacent to the San Secondo d'Asti Catholic Church, Guasti is positioned to be a unique, planned community blending a proud history and an opportunistic future. Guasti will offer almost 400,000 square feet of retail, restaurant and entertainment, 600,000 square feet of office, 400 residential units and 2 hotels. 175,000 square feet of existing historical stone winery buildings will be integrated into this rustic Inland Empire oasis, maintaining the Tuscan Charm and elegance with which the Guasti turn-of-the-century town was originally founded.
