George Oliver Adapts Downtown Chandler Redevelopment in Response to COVID

Phoenix-based George Oliver is making adjustments to The Alexander in downtown Chandler to accommodate needs in COVID-19 pandemic era. The developer is seeking to build tenant confidence and position its latest redevelopment project now under construction as a premier “new normal” work environment.

George Oliver’s strategic updates at the asset will ensure that the new 112,000-square-foot project at 25 S. Arizona Pl. aligns with the developer’s health-centered vision and prioritizes the amenities that most proactively support today’s most pressing office space concerns.

New COVID-19-related design enhancements include “touchless” accessibility throughout, 10-foot sliding glass entry doors, motion sensor restroom doors and fixtures, and touchless drinking fountains. The design and architecture team also upgraded the building’s main HVAC systems and elevators to optimize air quality and functionality. All strategic upgrades will be completed within the original development timeline, keeping the project on-track for delivery by Q4 2020.

Leasing is being handled by Colliers’ Ryan Timpani and Todd Noel.
