ach issue of People & Projects to Know in Commercial Real Estate (PTK) highlights the stories of the biggest deals and projects to reach fruition in Arizona over the last 12 months along with the people and companies that make it all happen. As the Greater Phoenix region and state continue its slow and steady recover from the last downturn, both have experienced a share of major commercial real estate wins. These deals and projects signify how Arizona and the Valley are moving up on the shortlists of companies looking to relocate and/or expand. Again, this year’s People to Know list consists of the CRE industry’s heaviest hitters. As you read, you’ll learn about their careers, achievements and what makes them worth knowing in this tight-knit CRE community. The Big Deals section recaps the priciest and largest industrial, land, multifamily, office and retail deals closed over the last 12 months, which includes a record-breaking multifamily deal in Downtown Phoenix. Lastly, Projects to Know is a collection of significant projects completed this year and other new to market projects that will be coming down the pike. Did we miss a person or project to know? Be sure to nominate your picks for next year’s people and projects to know through the electronic nomination forms on our website using the URL - azbigmedia.com/ open-nominations.

As the H.P.I.C., head principal-in-charge of SmithGroupJJR’s Workplace Interiors Studio, Mark Adams brings nearly 30 years of experience to his work with companies in developing and monitoring the overall performance of projects including schedule, scope and budget. He joined SmithGroupJJR in 2008 and has since made a name for himself as an award-winning designer recognized for his ability to listen and understand complex issues, distill a wide range of input and lead consensus on the best solutions for the overall project. Back in the day before he started pursuing architecture as a career, Adams played drums for his high school band and performed in clubs across Chicago. Despite never making it big as a rockstar, Adams says his favorite career accomplishment has been taking what was a small interior architecture group that supported the efforts of the architectural practice at SmithGroupJJR’s Phoenix office and developing it into a studio of its own. He explains, “It’s been like growing a business within a business, which is something that has always been a goal of mine.” That goal has also proven to be his greatest challenge too, which consists of creating a work environment that allows for the staff to grow in their careers. “I believe we’ve been able to do it very successfully and it has shown in loyalty, commitment and staying power,” he adds. Currently, Adams is in charge of a series of projects for web domain registrar giant GoDaddy, spanning Arizona locations in Tempe, Scottsdale and Gilbert, as well as Sunnyvale, Calif. and Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Under his direction, SmithGroupJJR designed GoDaddy Global Technology Center in Tempe, recognized for design excellence by numerous industry organizations as an innovative new model that the client is leveraging as a powerful workforce recruiting and retention tool. Adams earned his BFA in Interior Design from the Harrington College of Design and Architectural Studies at Iowa State University and is currently active in many industry associations such as IIDA, IFMA, BOMA, NAIOP and CoreNet Global.

The incredible, charismatic and close relationships Adam Baugh witnessed during his legal internship at the Phoenix offices of thenMayor Phil Gordon convinced Baugh to pursue the legal world of zoning and land use. But after Baugh graduated, he took a job as an immigration attorney working on corporate migration cases. Still wishing to become a land use and zoning attorney, Baugh convinced the team at Withey Morris to hire him for free. After his day job as an attorney, Baugh would work evenings pro bono. After a while Withey Morris hired Baugh, and he couldn’t be happier. “I can’t imagine doing anything else other than what we do here,” he says. Baugh relishes in the fact that his clients refer him for more work to their colleagues. He isn’t a Phoenix native, and loves cultivating relationships in a tight-knit industry. Over the past 11 years at Withey Morris, Baugh has worked on many projects, including the redevelopment of the Town and Country Shopping Center and the development of The Yard, the popular restaurant project that is home to Culinary Dropout on Phoenix’s Seventh Street Corridor. Working on The Yard was a tough assignment, Baugh says, and since its completion many other teams on other projects in the area mimic what Baugh did to make The Yard a reality. “Maybe that’s a compliment, I don’t know,” he says. When driving down the corridor, he is certainly happy to see the thriving area, which started with The Yard. “It’s fun to point out projects. I feel like I’m building the community,” Baugh says before mentioning that the developers are the ones taking the big risks that make these projects happen. “But I feel like I’m a small part of the team.” Baugh is all about endurance. He’s a marathon runner, actively involved with the community, serving as a Boy Scouts Leader and a Gilbert Chamber board member. He also spends as much time with his five young children and wife as he can. “By far my proudest accomplishment is having five kids, that are good kids, who are honorable, makes me happy,” he says.

Having been born at sea while her parents were in the midst of a sailing expedition around the world, Alexandra Loye has lived a unique life. Since childhood, the Avison Young principal has been finding adventure in the most unexpected places. After graduating from Arizona State University with a bachelor’s in business real estate, Loye went on to become one of the few women involved in commercial real estate brokerage. “It was a no brainer for me. I’m so math oriented and I’ve always loved business,” she says about going into an industry mostly populated by men. Loye started her career as an associate at a firm that is now Newmark Knight Frank, but it was not easy. She admits most of her success was built on perseverance and her determination. Eventually, Loye’s perseverance landed her a top position at Avison Young. “Being able to have the confidence and experience to really bring creative solutions to your clients is vital,” she says. One of Loye’s most recent successes in 2015 is very important to her, as it was one of her largest commissions and is now the deal behind the success of an emerging nonprofit, Lauren’s Institute for Education. She found an investor to purchase the property on behalf of the nonprofit, which completely turned its business around. Loye is not shy about expressing her passion for her work. With that same determination and passion, Loye dreams of being a business influence to other young women. “I want to have a positive impact on young women in this industry. I am more than happy to sit down with them and encourage them that this industry is not made only for men,” Loye says.

Despite attending a university with a renowned commercial real estate school, a suggestion by an eager job-recruiter made Rick Collins aware of an industry that he would eventually take part in leading. When he was working at IBM in the 1980s, Collins was looking to leave the computer world. He saw a right fit in the world of CRE due to his experience in working with companies making large financial decisions. “Without that recommendation, I might have stayed on the financial side of the computer industry or something else,” Collins says. By 1999, 14 years into his CRE career, Collins started working for Ryan Companies in Minneapolis, garnering experience in office, medical office, hotel, mixed-use and other development types. In 2014, Collins found himself moving to Arizona, a difficult task considering the amazing relationships that he built over the years with local officials and business leaders. But ultimately his move was a great one as it allowed him to tackle new responsibilities and career challenges. Since taking the helm here, Collins works to expand what Ryan Companies is known for in the Arizona region - build-to-suit projects. In just three years, Collins led Ryan Companies’ expansion into retail and other development products locally. Collins is proud to note that about 22 of the 70 team members who worked on the completed Marina Heights project are now in Seattle, as part of Ryan Companies’ Northwest expansion that he personally oversees. At home, Collins enjoys golf, boating and traveling with his wife. He’s a huge Elton John fan, and once upon a time, Collins worked the turntables at nightclubs in Wisconsin during the height of the disco era. Since he has moved here, Collins has enjoyed the open arms of the Arizona community, which has one of the best meritocracies for a major city, Collins says. It doesn’t matter where you grew up, or which club you’re a member of in Arizona, he says. “It’s more about, are you willing to get involved?” Collins asks. “If so, volunteer, pitch-in, put your shoulder to the wheel, add value and you’ll have opportunities to continue adding value.” PHOTO BY MIKE MERTES, AZ BIG MEDIA

The Town of Gilbert’s former mayor never seriously considered running for political office until two economic developers told him Gilbert wasn’t even on the radar for businesses looking to relocate. “That was the motivator for me to take a stronger look at running for mayor, thinking from an economic development standpoint maybe I could help,” says John Lewis who was Gilbert’s mayor from 2009 until he took the helm at East Valley Partnership in 2016. Lewis was raised in Utah by a family that valued education, as his father worked at Brigham Young University for many years. Thanks to being the founder of the Sen. Jake Garn fan club at his high school, coupled with other life experiences, Lewis worked at the office of Sen. Garn (who was chairman of the Senate Banking Committee) before diving into the world of banking. Lewis has been guided by the spirit of service, navigating him through the corporate and public world, eventually leading him to become the president and CEO of East Valley Partnership. With his young family in tow, Lewis first moved to Gilbert in 1985 working for what is now Ernst & Young. He would eventually work at the Apollo Group when the education company started to grow before becoming mayor. It has been fun for Lewis to watch the Gilbert and East Valley areas flourish with more economic development over the years. Lewis shares the credit with the myriads of people who worked together to create the area’s success. As mayor, Lewis made a point to work and visit with economic development directors and site selectors from businesses, which is why his transition to his post at East Valley Partnership was so easy. Leading East Valley Partnership is meeting and attending a lot of the same type of meetings Lewis attended as mayor. He works with many local leaders, prioritizing what they believe to be the best thing for the region. “The (East Valley) Partnership consists of 110 organizations, 60 board members, and what we do, we do together. And that’s where when something needs to be done, you do it together,” Lewis says.

Having been raised in Arizona, and driven on every state route crisscrossing Arizona, Andrew Smigielski has a deep relationship with this place he calls home. Smigielski earned degrees from both the University of Arizona and Arizona State University, and “maybe one day from (Northern Arizona University), but who knows,” he says. Smigielski got his first job from at the Arizona Department of Transportation, and then worked under a mentor of his at Glendale’s transportation department. After working with the city for some time, and with many people in line ahead of him for a promotion, due to seniority, Smigielski was told to find a new job to earn experience. “I wasn’t fired, but I was pushed out the door and went into the consulting world,” he says. His boss even helped him pick his next career path. Smigielski would work for a few firms before starting Southwest Traffic Engineering, something he always considered doing. 13 years after starting his business, he is happily leading a “young and exciting staff.” Since the Great Recession, Smigielski has seen many great engineers retire. With his leadership role, Smigielski says he works to act as a mentor for his employees, passing down history and knowledge of projects. “I had a wonderful mentor, and I’m trying to be a good mentor as well,” he says. One of the biggest challenges he and his company faces is making sure they’re brought on to a project sooner, rather than later. There are times when developers won’t give a traffic engineer a call until the project is near the finish line. But issues may arise if he’s coming late to the game, Smigielski explains, which costs more and delays the schedule. When he isn’t hard at work, Smigielski enjoys spending some time in the kitchen. “I like food and it brings family and friends together. It’s great to invite someone to help, and you can have them be in your sphere, in the task you’re doing. It provides a wonderful way to be with your friends and family,” Smigielski says.

When Mike and Patty Brown moved to the Valley from Denver in summer 2005, they knew it would be hot. Hot, however, would be an understatement. “Just a few months into our new life here, our house caught on fire while we were in it,” says Mike Brown. Thankfully, no one was hurt. But the Browns were temporarily homeless. “We moved here so I could continue to build my banking career, and ended up needing to rebuild our entire lives,” he adds. The learning lessons from the fire – people are more important than any things; live your passions; help others. “I took these lessons to heart at home and work, and it changed my life,” explains Brown, named the first-ever Arizona regional president of Washington Federal in spring 2014. Things would continue to heat up over the next decade, but in a good way this time. “We not only celebrated Washington Federal’s 100th anniversary in 2017, but opened our first-ever official Arizona Regional Headquarters,” he says. Brown and the local branches also feted the centennial with donations to Phoenix Children’s Hospital, Chicanos Por la Causa and Habitat for Humanity through its Washington Federal Foundation grant program. Since launching it locally in 2012, the Foundation has granted more nearly $60,000 in Arizona. Since Brown took the helm in 2014, the bank has reached several other significant milestones including more than $500 million in CRE financing for the construction, purchase or refinance of 235-plus commercial properties. In addition to more than $342 million in mortgages, the bank also generated $10 million in financing to a Fixed Base Operator at the Phoenix-Goodyear Airport, $10 million in financing a family of local farms, $13 million in financing to a local university and $15 million in financing to a local homebuilder for new home construction. The bank also acquired 13 Bank of America branches statewide, increasing the bank’s footprint in Arizona to 31 branches total. “And we’re just getting started,” says Brown.

With her small town upbringing in the rearview, Concord General Contracting’s vice president finds herself successfully navigating both the business realm and the world at large. Grenee Celuch graduated from Wayne State College with a bachelor’s degree in marketing after growing up in a small Nebraska town with a population of 210 people. She is now living in the fifth largest city in the country, traveling to beaches all around the world and working as the first female partner at Concord General Contracting. Her position as the first female partner at Concord humbles her. “It speaks highly of my company, and that no matter who you are, you are valued,” she says. Celuch’s passion for new cultures and places took her away from Nebraska to Arizona where she received her MBA in 2007. Celuch has come a great way since Nebraska, triumphing in both her personal and professional life, acting as the voice for growth and creativity at Concord General Contracting. She is determined for success, pushing herself forward after each achievement. At Concord, Celuch is responsible for the development of “Ultimate Client Experience.” The initiative is the main project management plan that guides Concord. Celuch started off creating proposals in the marketing department before she realized there was so much more to marketing within the company. “The vice president and CEO were completely open with me spreading my wings, and I was given a lot of freedom,” Celuch says. However, between her passion for her work and her dreams of traveling, Celuch finds it difficult to detach herself from the workplace. She is always thinking big picture when it comes to Concord and the way the firm can grow. “Some of my ideas come to me while on vacation. I’m always working. That’s just how I’m hardwired,” she says.

Having moved to Phoenix last year from Milwaukee, Wis. to take on his new position, Ed Valerio is adjusting to more than triple-degree summer temperatures and heat advisories. As he immerses himself into his role as director of property management, Valerio is quickly learning the ins-and-outs of a new real estate market, its players and what it takes to be successful in Phoenix’s small, tight-knit real estate community. Having worked with the Knight Management team for two and a half years before his official move to the Valley, he brings more than 20 years of professional real estate experience to the firm’s Phoenix office where he oversees the management of the company’s 5.5-million-square-foot commercial portfolio of office, medical office, retail and industrial space across Arizona, Illinois and Wisconsin. Valerio focuses on increasing and enhancing tenant retention/renewals and maintaining property occupancy; collaborating with stakeholders to maintain high quality properties and operations; overseeing client contracts, application of standards, negotiation and compliance; implementing programs and projects to maximize the utilization and efficiency of property operations; and identifying and implementing best practices and uses for all property and facility management activities. He’s also Knight’s designated broker. He received his Certified Property Manager (CPM) designation from the Institute of Real Estate Management in 2007 and went on to serve as the IREM president for the Milwaukee Chapter in 2013. That year, he also won the CPM of the Year Award. However, he says his favorite accomplishment is “graduating from the day-to-day management world to managing staff, a department and now a company.” He admits, “It helps that I have a great team of property managers and support staff that I work with on a daily basis.” When Valerio is working in the office on Friday afternoons, you can catch him enjoying his “Flashback Friday” playlist, which largely consists of old school tunes from his high school and college days. And when he’s not working, Valerio enjoys spending his free time with family and friends whether its outdoor or recreational activities like hiking, golf, basketball and running. He especially enjoys hiking now that him and the family can do it nearly year round, and says he really wants to try kayaking.

Matt Mooney is not a fan of bubbles. He was pushed away from working as a stock broker after witnessing the tech industry bubble burst in the early 2000s, which is why Mooney pursued a career in commercial real estate. Unfortunately, Mooney only ended up working for a few years before the commercial real estate bubble popped. But as there is a silver-lining to every cloud, there is also a silver-lining to bubbles. “The stretch from 2008 through 2011 or so were really tough years for our local economy and industry,” Mooney says, after mentioning that making it through the downturn was his greatest challenge. “My favorite part though is somewhat the result of those years in that leaders in Arizona made a concerted effort to diversify our economy coming out of the downturn.” Arizona has changed a lot since the dark days of the downturn, and as a result the state has been better off as it attracts higherwage and more diverse jobs, Mooney says. At Cousins Properties, Mooney has been recruiting the very clients who are making Arizona’s business landscape more diverse and knowledge-based. Cousins Properties’ office portfolio in Tempe has attracted names like Silicon Valley Bank, Amazon, ADP and others, and Mooney takes pride in helping those businesses call Arizona home. His efforts in helping Arizona grow in more ways than one has led Mooney to devote his time with GPEC, the Downtown Tempe Authority and NAIOP Arizona. In fact, he will lead NAIOP-AZ and its 800-plus members as the in-coming chair for 2018. His career and active involvement in the community’s economic development efforts has Mooney pretty busy, but he still gets to come home and enjoy his spare time with his wife and three young kids, who are aged eight, six and two. “Between career and kids there are never enough hours in the day, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. It is a blessing to wake up each day and have ample opportunities to contribute,” he says.

Principal Interstate Mechanical Corporation imcor-az.com By CIANNA LEPARULO

After 36 years of working at the family business, this shareholder at the Interstate Mechanical Corporation is living out his dream of making a difference in the community. Bob Karber held this dream ever since he graduated from the University of Arizona with a bachelor’s in business administration. His father and uncle started the family business, hiring him early on in his career and eventually passing a part of the family business on. “Emotionally, I’m attached and invested. I’m a strong believer in our local community and (Interstate Mechanical) is an opportunity for me to be active in the community,” Karber says. Reputation is a word Karber mentions often and this is a testament to the importance of the uniqueness he sees with Interstate Mechanical. Relationships within the company are very important to Karber and he prides the company on its capability to protect and foster the relationships with employees, suppliers and clients. Karber sees the value in the people that the company interacts with on a day-to-day basis and pays careful attention to their needs. “A valuable employee is almost impossible to replace. Every person is fundamental to our success and we care about each other,” he says. Not only is there uniqueness to the way in which Karber works at the company, but he has just as much motivation for fostering relationships with his family at home. Him and his wife have two children, a 12-year-old son and 7-year-old daughter with whom he fishes, golfs and snow skis with. Family is very important to him, and his wife is the one person who assures him of his success. “My business success depends on taking risks, so it’s nice to go home to someone who understands the stresses and who supports you in those decisions,” Karber says. He cares not only about his own success, but also about the success of everyone around him. Karber says it is the genuine relationships he enforces at Interstate Mechanical Corporation that makes it the successful firm it is today.

In less than two years since entering the commercial real estate industry and graduating from Grand Canyon University with a degree in communications, Hannah Sanders has made a name for herself through active involvement in some of the industry’s most prominent and influential trade associations such as ABA, AZCREW, NAIOP, Valley Partnership and ULI. At Valley Partnership, she was accepted into its Advocates program for aspiring CRE professionals under 35 years old. She was also accepted into NAIOP’s Developing Leaders program and serves on NAIOP’s Night at the Fights and Rookies & Rockstars committees. Meanwhile at Arizona Builders Alliance, she helps the membership committee, and is eager to get more involved with the Urban Land Institute next. Her willingness to get active and be engaged with so many industry associations serves as a prime example of the benefits, both personally and professionally, for other up-andcomers to get proactive about involvement. The Phoenix native and former high school cheerleader describes herself as Arizona’s number one fan and still a cheerleader at heart. Her charismatic and infectious personality undoubtedly helps Sanders’ business development efforts, which include pursuing new install or renovation projects, initiating and maintaining client relationships as well as organizing and marketing different networking events. She says, “I’ve been blessed to join a company that celebrates ingenuity, so finding new and meaningful ways to get AME’s name out there has been very fun.” For instance, as a certified yoga instructor, she incorporated her passion for maintaining a healthy mind, body and spirit into different fundraising and business development opportunities for good causes that are also good for you. For instance, Sanders partnered with JLL to host yoga classes on select Friday mornings at JLL’s Phoenix office on its balcony overlooking Camelback Mountain. Another initiative of hers was to bring a select group of subcontractors together to co-host ping pong tournaments for general contractors, which will come full circle in November for a championship where the best two teams of two will compete for the Golden Paddle. Since 2015, AME has tripled its revenue, and Sanders says, “Seeing AME’s construction division grow as much as it has and knowing that I am a part of it is exciting to me. And to be honest, I feel accomplished every time an industry leader agrees to meet with me.”

UA Environmental and Natural Resources (ENR2) Mixing nature and construction, the University of Arizona building is a prime example of sustainable design.

Many active and passive design choices were made to create this sustainability accomplishment. The

ASU Biodesign C Representing the third building at the Biodesign Institute Complex, the new research facility is comprised of flexible lab space for scientific researchers that will be adaptable in order to accommodate multiple types of research including chemistry, biological sciences and engineering research. Biodesign C will house the world’s first compact X-ray laser, a key drug discovery and bioenergy research tool. Upon completion, Biodesign C, which is aiming for LEED Platinum certification, will bring the Biodesign complex’s total size to more than 500,000 square feet.

central canyon courtyard was created to save energy on air conditioning. Metal fins and overhangs shade the building on the south façade to avoid direct sun exposure too. Natural lighting is utilized throughout the offices and halls, while the heating and cooling systems were created to save energy. Five university departments that are housed here had an influence on the design,

which was tailored with collaboration amongst scientific disciplines in mind. Built for offices and classrooms, the facility houses many spaces for professors and students to gather, allowing them to complete work for class and the world at large.

REI Distribution Center From the start, ambitious sustainability and technology goals for this facility were set and met through a collaborative culture and integrated planning sessions. Once completed, the distribution center became the first industrial facility of its size to ever be awarded both a LEED Platinum certification and Net Zero Energy rating. The project’s 2.2-megawatt solar system covers 280,000 square feet with 6,700 panels and produces more power than the facility consumes or the equivalent of powering 390 homes for one year. Additionally, a cooling system saves millions of gallons of water annually to a river restoration and recreation project in the Verde Valley, which is enough to provide water for more than 20 homes each year. In terms of technology, the facility also utilizes the first true omni-channel automated fulfillment system, delivering products to customers and retail stores up to eight times faster than average.

UPS Package Processing Hub E-commerce is further fueling UPS as it prepares to open up a new package processing hub in Goodyear. The delivery service will modify an already existing 618,000-squarefoot structure on 140 acres in the PV303 Development. A portion of this building will begin operating by 2017’s holiday season. The finished 970,000-square-foot product will come online in 2019, housing sortation equipment, advanced operational technologies and 1,500 jobs. This facility is designed for the lightweight e-commerce packages that move throughout Arizona and the wider Southwest. UPS’s upcoming package processing hub will propel the company into the modern-age supply chain world.

With a total of 1,100 solar panels on the roof and atop the property’s parking structures, Equinox’s annual energy savings is estimated at $46,500. The development team built a proprietary model that evaluated the cost-benefit of various building materials and components and translated it to Home Energy Rating System (HERS) points per dollar value. This allowed the team to construct the building for a cost comparable to other newly constructed apartment buildings that are not Net Zero Energy.

In less than eight months, crews transformed five former movie theaters into an open office and the old Galleria Mall into a single-tenant call center. Comcast’s new flagship call center and training facility in Tucson is the company’s largest in the Western U.S. The space opens up to 36-foot ceilings adorned with four extraordinary, custom light fixtures accented with arched design elements and a red, white and black color scheme. This project marks the highest investment to date by Comcast into a facility with highend design and mechanical features ranging from an axiom cloud pattern, state-of-the-art sound system and LED light fixtures.

The Roland’s Market Building It’s important for growing cities to hold on to the highlights of the past. The redevelopment of Phoenix’s first Chinese American supermarket, Roland’s Market building, is holding on to Phoenix’s lush past while looking ahead to the future. The once boarded up building has been opened up to the world after the installation of a glass garage door. The famous Roland’s Market neon sign has been re-installed while the awning was accentuated with the inward movement of the glass doors. Old stucco was ousted to expose the brick arches over the doors and windows, revealing impressive craftsmanship from 1917. The family of the market’s original owners have been contacted to help tell this building’s story while providing historical photos of the market. Care has been taken to preserve this building, original red-bricks and all, while still hosting options for future tenants to make the space their own.

Terminal 3 Modernization at Sky Harbor Airport The main design goals were to create a world-class facility, solidify the connection to the community and utilize the existing canvas. Phase 1 consisted of opening up the old terminal, designed in 1978 by DWL Architects, to incorporate its existing atrium spaces, skylights with natural light and exceptional views, connecting travelers back to the city and native Arizona desert landscape. Targeted for completion in late 2018/ early 2019, Phase 2 will create a new 15-gate south concourse as well as food and retail concessions. Finally, Phase 3, to be completed in 2020, will involve the complete remodel of the north concourse focusing on an open passenger experience with shared hold rooms and concessions enhancements.
