LGE Design Build has broken ground and is currently in the process of constructing Crown Castle’s 70KSF, two-story class-A office build to suit in Chandler.
Crown Castle, the nation’s largest provider of wireless infrastructure, expects to move into the new facility next summer, located at southeast corner of Germann Road and Stearman Drive. Crown Castle provides wireless carriers with the infrastructure they need to keep people connected and businesses running. With approximately 40,000 towers and 14,000 small cell nodes supported by approximately 6,000 miles of fiber, Crown Castle has a significant presence in the top 100 U.S. markets.
“With an innovative, cutting-edge client, the design intent is to create a unique experience by providing a specific context within the desert and Chandler,” said David Sellers, president of LGE Design Build. “We’ll connect the outside environment with texture, colors and materials to convey corporate elegance.”
The build to suit’s entry includes steel beams and columns, accented by sandstone and a wood finished, with interior concrete panel walls and tinted glazing, contributing to a sophisticated corporate feel. The building also will have two balcony areas and metal trellises to provide shade around the building.
