Phases III and IV of Metro East Valley Commerce Center Kick Off in Mesa
On behalf of Metro Commercial Properties, Graycor Construction Company started construction on Phases III and IV of Metro East Valley Commerce Center. The five-building 406,575-square-foot speculative project will expand and complete Metro’s 11-building 1.1 million-square-foot class-A industrial park, which fronts the U.S. 60 Superstition Freeway in Mesa.
Construction on Phases III and IV is underway now, slated for completion in late 2021. Upon completion, the development will be one of the largest master-planned commerce parks in Phoenix’s Southeast Valley.
“The Southeast Valley is an extremely diverse industrial market that requires an equally diverse industrial inventory,” said Ryan Foley, Metro Commercial Properties principal. “We’ve designed these final phases – and the entire Metro East Valley Commerce Center – to respond to that need with modern, efficient, well-located industrial space that is flexible enough to accommodate everything from small- to medium-size users to advanced manufacturers and last-mile distribution operations.”
Phases III and IV will feature up to 32-foot clear height with dock high and grade-level loading. The concrete-tilt buildings will range from 58,399 square feet to 112,097 square feet.
Scottsdale-based McCall & Associates is the project architect for Phases III and IV. Chris McClurg, Ken McQueen and Kurt Saulnier of Lee & Associates are the project’s exclusive leasing brokers.
