Arizona’s strength is showing



he Arizona economy used to be a one-trick pony, driven primarily by housing developments. In 2020, the state showed that it had developed some new skills that would come in handy in a time of crisis, and boy, did the state (and nation) face a major crisis with the COVID-19 pandemic. The current strength and diversity of Arizona’s economy helped the state avoid the amount of massive business closures and layoffs that plagued other markets around the country. In Arizona, there was actually a lot of activity, with new construction projects beginning, like the state-of-the-art building DPR Construction and Arizona State University are building in Downtown Mesa and the eye-catching Scottsdale Entrada that was designed by SmithGroup and being built by Hardison Downey. The state saw a major influx of new residents during the pandemic, as well as many businesses that are relocating or expanding in the market. To accommodate that growth, expect to see the amount of new construction continue to remain strong for a few years to come. I highlighted those two projects, but they are just a small sample of projects that we highlight in this year’s edition of People and Projects to Know in Commercial Real Estate. Projects like these are driven by the vision of people who make them a reality, and this magazine will introduce you to some of the professionals in the Arizona market that are leading the way as our state grows and matures into a major economic force in the nation. And remember, if you know someone that you feel should be recognized in next year’s edition, please drop me a line and let me know.

ehind all of it — the nine-figure sales transactions, the buildings rising out of the ground and the companies moving into our community — are people. Nothing gets done in this industry without visionary people deciding to push the boundaries; analytical people to determine what, when and where is the best time to act; and craftspeople to turn vision and numbers into the hard reality that makes up our world. In these pages are 119 of the people that are driving and shaping commercial real estate in Arizona. The short snippets that we are running in this magazine tell just a little bit about these people, but only scratch the surface of their background and the work that they do so well. There are well-known people in the community, icons like Greg Vogel, whose decades of work in land transactions has resulted in some of our most valuable developments. There are also people who are just starting out in the industry, like Dylan Whitwer, a young broker that began his professional career in the environmental and geotechnical arena, but opted to join the wild, wild world of commercial real estate. We’re pleased to introduce these people to you, but like their brief write-ups, we’re just scratching the surface on the number of talented people that work in our community.

ANNUAL BIG DEAL REPORT Market Steady as She Goes during wild 12 months



hen taken in their entirety, the last 12 months in the Arizona commercial real estate world have been, well, decent. There weren’t a great deal of huge transactions in the past year, but there were several that caught the attention of the industry, most notably the $212 million sale of one of the Crown Jewels of the Camelback Corridor, the Biltmore Financial Center. That whopper of a transaction went down in December of 2019 and might cause one to think that set the stage for a huge year in the office sector. The big office deals, however, dried up quicker than one could say COVID-19, which put a



major damper on office transaction activity and dollar amounts for the rest of 2020. One sector that had a strong year from start to finish was the Greater Phoenix multifamily sector. Bouyed by two deals of more than $117 million, the sector recorded a year in which the top 10 deals of the past year (mid-October 2019 to midOctober 2020) averaged just under $100 million according to data from Race Carter at Cushman & Wakefield, as well as data from the commercial real estate transaction tracking website The top 10 multifamily deals came in at an average of $96.3 million, well ahead of the office sector top 10 average of $65.1 million. In fact, the industrial market, another strong

performer in 2020, had a top-10 average of $69.6 million. Traditional retail averaged $35.3 million for the top 10 deals of the past year. Factor in two niche categories of hospitality and self storage, and that average jumps to $49.8 million for the top 10 deals. That jump is thanks in most part to two sales of Hilton properties, a $100 million sale of the DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Paradise Valley and a $62 million sale of the Hilton Scottsdale Resort & Villas. The top 10 land deals were for an average of $35.5 million. With the pandemic raging throughout most of 2020, the performance of the Valley’s commercial real estate sectors was surprising, even inspiring for an even better 2021.

UPS DISTRIBUTION CENTER First Park @ PV303 was built in 2017 and this building was the largest piece of that development was Building 1, home to a UPS distribution facility.

In spring 2017, UPS leased the 618,000-square-foot spec building in the PV303 master-planned business park located off Indian School Road and Loop 303. That year, the building was used as an overflow site for the busy holiday shipping season. However, UPS’s vision to expand the facility is now a reality as the original building was expanded to 970,000 SF. The expansion includes a stand-alone customer service building with main employee entrance, employee and customer parking, auto wash building, auto service building, truck fueling islands, and truck circulation with trailer parking. The main truck exit will be a private drive at the intersection of Charles Boulevard and Sarival Avenue with traditional truck queuing, guardshack, and security gates.

BILTMORE FINANCIAL CENTER The Biltmore Center, comprised of three Class A office buildings, fetched one of the largest prices in Phoenix history. A joint venture formed by Phoenix-based ViaWest Group sold the asset to a newly-formed venture, with ViaWest maintaining an ownership and management position. The property sold for $212 million. This sale came late in the year, but was the largest multi-tenant office sale in metro Phoenix in 2019 and the fourth largest in Phoenix history. JLL represented the seller, a partnership between Prospect Ridge and ViaWest Group. The prior joint venture purchased the office complex in 2015 for $163.1 million at a time when office vacancies were still at prerecession highs above 25 percent. However, ViaWest saw a value-add opportunity with the right location, views, access, parking and tenant base. Beginning with a rebranding, ViaWest made significant investments to elevate the property, including updated lobbies and corridors, complete overhaul of the outside plaza, state-of-theart fitness center, new restaurants and the addition of a tenant lounge. These market-leading amenities include Press Coffee and Over Easy; an indoor and outdoor tenant lounge with shuffleboard, bag toss and table tennis; weekly food trucks; a fully-renovated fitness center; a 150-seat conference center; a two-acre park for weekly yoga and tenant events and an on-site hair salon.

CANOPY BY HILTON TEMPE DOWNTOWN This new hotel was designed to have a strong connection to the community implementing design features that take direct inspiration from local and regional influences. True to the Brand’s character the property was designed to be an active participant in the local scene.

Canopy Central with its street side bar and operable walls and the flexible double height multipurpose space situated directly off of University Drive sets itself nicely as a living room potentially used by guests, neighboring students and the Community at large. Inspired by the project’s proximity to ASU the project’s architecture was directly influenced by the culture of ASU as the patterning on building’s elevations was taken directly from Arizona State University’s fight song “Maroon



& Gold”. The song was run through a digitizer that graphically displayed the music as bars, longer for high notes shorter for low and spaced laterally timed for the beats. They then applied different colors, white for the space between notes, light grey for the lower notes and dark grey for the high notes. These colored bars were then sized based on their length and power. When looking at the south facade starting from the top at the west corner, the music reads from east to west across each floor of the building, manipulating the window locations as required to read correctly.

Being somewhat of a short song it plays twice on each façade, restarting on the sixth floor and playing again ending above the exit door at the east side of the building. The regional inspirations continue into the building. The interior design was inspired by the Arizona landscape and history of the city of Tempe. Beginning at the front door a signature ceiling element runs throughout Canopy Central which takes inspiration from of the seasonal riverbeds in the area, known locally as arroyos. The ceiling’s edges undulate through the space in an organic way as the wood beams and hanging greenery offer a natural element and give a nod to the brush and sparse greenery found within these arroyo.

ELWOOD LOGISTICS CENTER Elwood Logistics Center is the largest speculative industrial project to ever be built in Arizona at 1.3M SF on 84 acres. The cross dock industrial building meets all of the needs for the modern-day distribution center, e-commerce, light manufacturing, and other logistics users. It features a 40’ clear height with an ESFR

fire protections system and high-performance slab allowing for high density, very narrow aisle, robotic access material handling systems. The building will have two 3000 amp electrical services and has provisions for an additional two 3,000 amp services if required by the user. The building was also designed to allow for multiple tenants through more than one employee parking area and multiple distinctive entry areas with glass frontage and entrance canopy. Some of the construction challenges were



site development and the proximity to a second major regional utility. The Elwood site was formerly agricultural and is part of the Roosevelt Irrigation District (RID) canal system. The team worked closely with RID’s engineers and the design team to ensure full operation of the canals and to design the re-routing plan. Elwood Logistics is designed to achieve LEED Silver certification under the industrial core and shell category. Shell features such as R38 roof insulation and a roofing membrane with high reflectivity (SRI) rating contribute to lower energy usage and reduced heat island effect. Renaissance has implemented extensive recycling efforts on site to divert as much construction waste as possible from the landfill.

OPTIMA KIERLAND CENTER Optima Kierland Center is a 21st century urban solution to residential design located in Scottsdale. With innovative planning, the site design achieves a remarkable 70 percent open space at grade level with all parking below grade.

The result is a beautifully landscaped, park-like setting with five buildings of luxury residential units on the 9.5 acre site. Each building is carefully integrated to the site to achieve awe-inspiring views within the complex and to the mountains beyond. The theme of openness continues as the first floor of each building features floor to ceiling glass and deep overhangs, creating the effect of glassy pavilions in the park-like setting. The dynamic, undulating faรงade with perforated panels and sunscreening louvers creates shade and shadows, voids and textures, punctuated by the desert sun. The desert sun is effectively filtered with strategically placed louvers and curved, perforated panels in front of the floor to ceiling glass. The result is an uplifting effect of filtered sunlight to the open living spaces, enhancing a sense of well-being. Each residence is interconnected to the outdoors with large terraces. All terraces are unified by an innovative vertical landscaping system with drip irrigation and features native plants. 84

SAN PIEDRA San Piedra is a gated apartment community of 346-units consisting of one, two, and three-bedroom flats within two and three-story buildings on approximately 19.5 acres. The site needed to be rezoned (and

recharacterized in the General Plan) to solve its challenging location for retail, and take advantage of the surrounding amenities and employment base. It is located in an active employment area adjacent to freeway ramps amongst retail, office and the Banner Gateway medical campus. The units are some of the largest in the industry (averaging just under 1,200 SF). The majority of the buildings have a smaller four-plex footprint which offers fewer common walls, more landscaped breezeways and circulation throughout the site, and an intentional rejection of the long, dark corridors of larger building types. The majority of buildings are oriented around two significant open spaces. One is the main pool and activity center adjacent to the well-appointed Amenity Building providing a large stat-of-the-art fitness center, leasing office and social area with serving bar for resident gatherings. The resort-style lagoon pool, spa, cabana, ramadas, and sand volleyball facilities are available for active recreation. The other open space is more park-like with an active tot-lot playground area on one end, and an extensive lawn with BBQ-ramadas on the other for a more passive, relaxing experience.

Gensler’s architecture, design, and planning teams took on the repositioning of a ground-floor former retail space for its new office in Phoenix. Embracing the distinct desert climate, the aspiration of an indoor/outdoor environment was realized with the addition of a “brise-soleil” shade element — the architectural feature creates a distinct street-level presence and dynamic front-door welcome experience. Backed

by research and with an eye towards innovation, Gensler’s designers created a new Living Lab workplace model where staff and clients can collaborate, workshop ideas, and showcase design leadership. The 100 percent agile work setting embodies Gensler’s culture of openness and collaboration — and pushes the bounds of the evolving modern workplace. Amenities in the workplace support innovation, process, collaboration, and various modes of working including focus rooms, a makerspace, resource library, and VR station with a balance of agile work and social areas. Lifestyle amenities including café, patio, lockers, and a wellness room, bring comfort and convenience to the office. 90

CARVANA HQ3 This corporate office embodies four C’s – Calm, Comfort, Clarity, Craft. “Calm and Comfort” which are implemented by overhead sound systems that emit spa-like audio, and complemented by quiet patterns and materiality, soft corners and smooth transitions from space to space.

A monochromatic palette balanced with light wood tones and natural accents further evokes a sense of serenity. “Clarity and Craft” are suggested in the use of these natural materials with a hand-craft feel. Clear glass, natural wood, and built in planters with living trees to help emanate the clarity and transparency of the interior architecture. The walls in collaborative spaces are covered in aspirational branding messages, including core values and innovative spirit of the brand. The open office is composed of small packs of workstations with collaboration spaces which connect teams – hierarchy is minimized with no individual offices. Floor to ceiling windows on the second level allow natural light to flood the space, while providing inspiring views of Camelback Mountain and Papago Park. This workplace also features vignettes that focus on the unique design and intent of the space itself, underlining the overall effort to exude beauty and utility. This is achieved through light fixtures, wall treatments, pops of textures and tones of furniture and textiles. For example, as a contrast with its bright surrounding office space a dark library was designed as a place where users can reflect internally and find respite. Design elements in this space include comfortable lounge furniture, cladded shou sugi ban walls - a black burnt wood with heavy texture, and a custom floor to ceiling book shelf.

One of the Southwest’s 10 largest public accounting and advisory firms, REDW wanted their Phoenix office to reflect their client and employee focused culture. They found themselves shifting their

work to a more collaborative model that demanded a more flexible, open space. The new space brought amenities to the center of the floor, encouraging employees to get up, walk around, and interact more during the day. A centrally located conference zone features a beverage bar, making clients feel at home. Dynamic wall patterns and eyecatching pendant lights add character to the space, while keeping the overall build very budget friendly. The project began with a visioning session, where Corgan led the REDW and JLL team



through a series of exercises to understand their culture, their space needs, and what they would be looking for in a space. The JLL leasing team took that foundation and went out into the market to seek out the ideal new home. In the end, REDW decided to stay at The Madison on 16th street. The renovation in place required that they use swing space in order to remain operational through the busy tax season. REDW now hosts clients and community events in their new office, proud to show off their culture and accomplishments. They use the space as a recruiting tool for top talent and have put together their own marketing campaign about the new office environment, complete with a blog and video.

SCOTTSDALE ENTRADA Scottsdale Entrada, located at the prime intersection of 64th Street and McDowell road, will serve as the gateway into Scottsdale from the west. The project aims to revitalize 30 acres of vacated commercial structures, with a new mixed-use development comprised of office, retail, hospitality and multi-family that’s centered on a village green park to promote a vibrant live, work, play environment. Scottsdale

Entrada is one of the largest redevelopment sites in the southern part of Scottsdale and has some unique attributes not included in most redevelopment projects in the area. The development is oriented around a crossing pattern of open space-pedestrian/access corridors, both north/south and east/west that will have an urban-like streetscape experience while providing the openness to the blue skies and views afforded by the site. The class A office building, totaling 250,000 SF over three levels, creates a welcoming gesture not only to the development but also to the City of Scottsdale with the dynamic radiused façade that joins the two legs of the L-shaped configuration. There will be four residential buildings with 735 units arranged around covered surface



parking and wrapped around two parking structures. The residential development orients to the outside of the site to capitalize on the amazing views and includes two districts that each have a common pool and recreation center. The office design, completed by SmithGroup, features a responsive façade that was developed to celebrate the unique desert views off to the scenic Papago park while protecting the expansive glazing from the western exposure afforded by the views. From the corner of 64th and McDowell, the building opens to the community with a public ‘outdoor room’ that connects to a transparent double volume building lobby, which leads directly to the heart of the internal development, the village green. The residential design, completed by Todd and Associates, incorporates modern/ contemporary design composition and detailing, substantial depth and patterning along the facades, and a variation of site relationships and functions to create a campus of buildings that share an overall character yet provide for unique elements that give different portions and buildings identity.

The concept for Flint was to provide a visceral, elevated dining experience to every patron. Almost every dish served is prepared either in the wood-fired pizza oven or massive wood-burning grill. Enclosing the kitchen in glass allows diners the ability to view and participate in the energy of the food prep. That energy emanates outwards from the kitchen to the raised dining platform, providing an exclusive view into the art of preparing inventive, beautiful dishes. The restaurant features a massive, glass enclosed, 2,500 bottle wine room, stocking wines from all over the world. LGE Design Group worked closely with the owner and chef to ensure their design vision was executed in every aspect of the restaurant. All finishes were curated to ensure their quality and beauty matched, coordinated and supported the elegant food. Large scale, light wood plank flooring mixes with whitewashed brick and steel accents to provide a cozy, inviting, but sophisticated charm. The extensive use of glass and folding walls allows natural light to reach every corner of the space, creating an airy and open feeling.

The Steelyard brings modern style to an industrial agrarian design.

The site in Southeast Chandler has been arranged to encourage pedestrian access both internally and to external points of connection. A major pedestrian connection to the hard corner will invite patrons to the heart of the project. The parking areas have largely been located toward the project interior to create a more

active street edge, with buildings and dining areas creating a strong community presence, while moving these activities away from the residential development. The three integrated and freestanding multi-tenant buildings are being built in response to high demand from the neighborhood, residential growth and the desire for unusual retail in the area.

HEIDI’S VILLAGE In April 2019, the Virginia B. Jontes Foundation of Phoenix broke ground on Heidi’s Village, a $20 million specialty animal shelter and veterinary clinic spread over five acres. Completed in

April 2020, the 40,000-square-foot wfacility has formally accepted its first animals for temporary boarding, with plans to ramp up as best it can and as safely as it can despite the current pandemic. “Our first-of-its kind space opens at a precarious time. We have dramatically altered our initial planned daily operations protocols to ensure the safety and health of both our staff and animals,” says Lisa Evans Johnson of Heidi’s Village, noting they ensured social distancing, helped get team members trained virtually, and implemented procedures for regular sanitization of all surfaces



throughout the process of intake, housing, grooming and health assessment as well as operations. A unique animal shelter concept, the mission of Heidi’s Village is to foster a community where animals are treated with respect, dignity and compassion. According to Evans Johnson, Heidi’s Village features nine total buildings with thoughtfully developed boarding space for up to 250 dogs and 200 cats, though it is their goal never to house that many animals at once. Each of the six dog boarding buildings have four outdoor play yards equipped with agility play equipment, shade structures and misting systems. Each of the two cat boarding buildings feature an outdoor play yard with flora and fauna to provide stimulation for all cat’s senses.
