Work begins on another industrial park near Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport
PHOENIX — More warehouse space is on the way to Southeast Mesa after developers launched a three-building industrial park project on Tuesday.
When complete, Advanced Industrial Park will provide 335,066 square feet of warehouse and distribution space near Sossaman and Pecos Roads, south of Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport.
Phoenix-based developer ViaWest bought the 21-acre property for $9.7 million earlier this year, according to AZ Big Media.
Design and construction company Clayco was contracted to build on the land.
“ViaWest and Clayco are making the wise decision to locate in Southeast Mesa, where demand for industrial space has not slowed. In fact, it continues to grow,” Mesa Mayor John Giles said in a news release.
“This development provides another great option for companies looking to start or expand their operations in Mesa.”
The largest of the three buildings will have 131,737 square feet of leasable area. The others will have 122,690 and 80,639 square feet.
“I am thrilled that ViaWest and its partners have chosen Southeast Mesa as a location to expand their operations,” City Councilman Kevin Thompson said in the statement.
“Expansions like this are what draw others to invest in our community and create jobs in the area.”
The groundbreaking came a month after construction began nearby at a much larger three-building industrial park.
Developer Greystar’s Gateway Grand project will be about six times larger than the Advanced Industrial Park at 2 million square feet, with the largest structure at nearly 1.1 million square feet.
