Lincoln, Goldman Sachs Break Ground on 350K-SF Tempe Spec Office

Lincoln Property Company (LPC), Goldman Sachs and City of Tempe Mayor Mark Mitchell broke ground on the second Class A office building at The Grand at Papago Park Center in Tempe.  The 352,000-square-foot building is one of Arizona’s largest ever office buildings to break ground as a purely speculative endeavor.

Located at 1027 W. Roosevelt Way, the nine-story building is scheduled for completion in second quarter 2019. It will be the second of eight Class A office buildings slated to be built by Lincoln within the 60-acre mixed-use project, which will eventually include 3.2 million square feet of mixed-use office, multifamily, hotel, retail and restaurant space.

The Grand’s state-of-the-art creative office space includes a two-story lobby, modern and flexible floorplates, and an open office concept highlighted by 12-foot floor-to-ceiling vision glass windows. Among the project’s unique features are a 10,000-square-foot amenity lounge with a restaurant, indoor/outdoor seating, TV area and two conference facilities.
