Tempe's Warner Commerce Park Sells to Barings for $42M

Phoenix Commerce Center Sells for $42.4M

The Opus Group acquired the property on W. Warner Road in Tempe for $9.3 million a year ago. The Warner Commerce Park site had been home to a Honeywell office building before a demolition undertaking cleared the way for Opus to develop two industrial facilities totaling 98,500 square feet each. They sold the repurposed property for $42.4 million to Barings, a global investment management firm just a year later. A team from Cushman & Wakefield represented Opus.

Carrying the addresses of 1320 and 1330 W. Warner Road, the two buildings feature 32-foot clear heights, as well as a total of 40 rear-load dock doors and four drive-in doors. The firm delivered the repurposed property in December 2022, well in advance of the original estimated completion date of March 2023.

Industrial sales prices reached a record high in the final quarter of the year, jumping to an average of $171 per square foot. Warner Commerce fetched approximately $215 per square foot.
