Ontario, the business hub of the Inland Empire, already boasts million-dollar homes and a private airport for executive jets. Now a developer is proposing what would be the first big Class A office building the region has seen in a decade. The city's Planning Commission has approved the development of a six-story, 150,000-square-foot office project with an adjacent four-level parking structure. The new building, at 888 Haven Ave., is scheduled to be completed by mid-2006.
