CPI sells Hewson Dover Business Park in Mesa

Commercial Properties, Inc. announced the sale of Hewson Dover Business Park.  Tyson Breinholt, Trent Rustan and Josh Gosnell of CPI’s Tempe Office & Retail Group represented the seller in this transaction.

The 11,424 SF, class-B office building is located at 4344 E. Presidio Street in Mesa on the NW corner of Greenfield Road and Presidio Street.  The property offers close proximity to the Loop 202 and is just north of Falcon Field Municipal Airport.

Rustan commented, “cross-marketing and re-use of space was the key to getting a $1M building sale in Mesa. During the bull market, everything was going fine. The building was built in the most unlikely of locations, but it was a build-to-suit. A 11,000 SF full service spa was built next to Falcon Field in Mesa. Fully built out with hair salon, nail stations, massage room, showers, lockers and a beverage counter – everything the tenant could deliver to take advantage of all of the prosperity and new growth in North Mesa and Gold Canyon, but they never got the chance. The real estate crash of 2008 put a quick end to that business plan — and the building sat vacant ever since.”

4344 E Presidio Street is a 100 percent leased, multi-tenant, class-B office building which was built in 2005 and formerly owned by Fisher Holding Company LLC.

Gosnell said, “since we were unlikely to find another 11,000 SF day spa to take this building, we had to think outside the box and market the building to different types of users – office, industrial, medical.”

Breinholt added, “A doctor has purchased the building with the intention of retrofitting the building into his medical practice, which will operate out of the property. This is a use that really makes sense. The doctor is able to use the existing structure and much of the interior rooms, but retro fit the interior for their own unique use. It was a win-win.”

Valley Of The Submarkets

Jeff Hays, senior vice president of sales and leasing at Commercial Properties Inc., is starting his 30th year specializing in the industrial sector and will be the first to tell you that everybody’s busy and no one’s complaining.

LGE Design Build has 54 industrial projects either in the ground or in design, says President Dave Sellers. Brock Grayson, vice president of Layton Construction and co-chair of GPEC’s Community Building Consortium, shares the same sentiments with Layton’s 650KSF of build-to-suit and expansion projects in Arizona.

While LGE’s sweet spot, says Sellers, includes many manufacturing buildings and design-build projects for companies that won’t fit into a spec space, spec isn’t dead. About five spec industrial buildings are in the planning or permitting process. From Sellers’ perspective, the sector is suiting up, so to speak. In the last two months, Sellers says, LGE Design Build has received seven new build-to-suit projects. Layton Construction has also seen some build-to-suit demand. The rise in these projects for Layton has little to do with a declining interest in spec development, says Grayson and Layton Executive Vice President Andrew Geier. They’re just keeping busy with everything else.

Between the build-to-suits and the spec development, though, are the empty spaces contributing to deceptively high vacancy rates. These are the semi-obsolete industrial buildings that need some tenant improvement or a functional change.

A lot of businesses need excess land for more parking or equipment or yard storage, he adds. “It has become a lot more difficult to find quality buildings. That’s leading to some build-to-suits,” he says.

CPI has worked on a handful of distribution center build-to-suits, including Barrel of Fun in Tolleson and Legends Furniture. Unlike office and retail, there’s less interest in aesthetics as much as functionality — clear heights, power capabilities and square-footage.

It’s one thing that’s keeping obsolete industrial spaces from becoming dysfunctional. It’s about $25 per square foot to raise a roof, for instance, so office users looking for that industrial feel are more likely to take the old 16-foot industrial space than someone who is looking for the new 36-foot clear heights. Users are safer bets (they’ll pay more), but Hays says CPI is seeing more action from investors lately, particularly with those in California.

MARKET UPDATE
While the rents seem to have stabilized overall and absorption in 2Q was 4MSF, things still aren’t where they were. But CPI’s Hays isn’t concerned as long as the market can reach a happy medium. More end-users are upsizing, build-to-suits are seeing success and quality buildings are becoming harder to find. The effect of rising construction costs depends on the submarket in which a developer is looking.

Papago Tech Exterior

The airport, East Valley and Deer Valley submarkets are seeing upward pressure on rental rates due to short supply of industrial space. In turn, CBRE Senior Vice President of Industrial Services, Pat Feeney, says the short supply of investment properties are putting downward pressure on cap rates for leased investments. The lack of available land is another way Feeney says developers can combat rising construction rates.

“Those that are lucky enough to own in these submarkets are really in the driver’s seat when it comes to tenant negotiations,” Feeney says. On the other hand, he says, the Southwest Valley submarket is “lethargic.”

“The next couple of large square footage users that lease space are going to be treated as the belle of the ball,” Feeney says. “I think that today the landlords are financially sound so it is unlikely we will see lease rates drop to the levels we saw in 2009 when the market was similar in terms of supply.”

“If it’s at the right price, someone will take it,” says Hays, adding that many class-B and -C industrial was absorbed for other uses during the downturn. “People are still looking for good quality buildings.”

A lack of leased warehouse product in the Southwest Valley available to investors, despite high demand, keeps values up, Feeney says. “Currently, the big box distribution user activity and inquiries are at a high level, but users in this group have been very slow to commit to executing leases,” says Feeney.

“However, it should be noted that while large users have been hesitant to commit, the 20KSF to 100KSF users have been extremely active. Users in this size range have been carrying the market so far this year with more than 1.3MSF of positive net absorption in the first half of 2014.

I believe that as soon as we see five to six large leases signed in the Southwest Valley big box distribution market, we will reach a balance of supply and demand that we have not seen since 2005 and 2006. I am very encouraged with the current condition of the market.” When big box distribution sees some absorption, he says, overall vacancy stands a chance at single digits.

OSA Janitorial Service becomes licensed dealer of Ceiling Pro International

OSA Janitorial Service of Phoenix recently was named a licensed dealer of Ceiling Pro International (CPI), a leader in the commercial ceiling cleaning industry. Based in Eden Prairie, MN, CPI was founded nearly 25 years ago and offers 18 bio-degradable, proprietary products to clean and sanitize ceilings.

OSA Janitorial Service has been owned by Brad Pierce since 2000. The company provides cleaning and janitorial services for restaurants, retail businesses, medical facilities, office buildings, grocery stores and charter schools in the Phoenix Metro area.

“Ceilings trap smoke, odor, grease, dust and other pollutants,” says Pierce. “Not only do they look bad, but also they can quickly become a sanitary problem.  Clean ceilings improve your lighting for a brighter, cleaner look to any space. We wanted to provide ceiling cleaning as a service to our clients and selected CPI as the best company in the industry. Using their products and systems, we are able to clean commercial ceilings for 80 percent less than replacing the ceilings. This service is environmentally friendly as we are avoiding unnecessary waste in landfills.”

CPI clients include well-known companies such as McDonald’s, Burger King, Costco, John Deere and Whole Foods Market. Roderick C. Olson of John Deere recently had his company cafeteria cleaned using CPI products. “It was water-stained, smoke-stained and of course, grease-stained and hadn’t been cleaned for many years. When they were done, it looked like a brand new ceiling,” Olson says.

“Dirty ceilings lead to higher rates of allergies and sickness in your employees, which of course leads to lower productivity and higher medical costs if you provide benefits,” Pierce adds. “Also, some industries, like restaurants, face fines or penalties for improper care of their ceilings.”

County health departments, such as Maricopa County, inspect restaurant ceilings for cleanliness as part of their regular inspection process.

This center was established in response to the Fukushima accident in Japan in 2011 where power was lost to effectively cool the reactor.  The Phoenix center will be capable of getting the necessary equipment on-site using air and ground transportation within 24 hours to any site in America.

Randy Edington, executive vice president and chief nuclear officer at Arizona Public Service Company, which operates the Palo Verde nuclear facility commented, “Equipment from the regional response centers will enable all nuclear plant operators to protect their reactors and used fuel storage pools until normal power and cooling systems are restored.  This is an addition to other measures, including built-in safety systems, the use of on-site portable emergency equipment, and portable equipment and materials on hand at all 62 nuclear energy facilities that can be utilized and shared during an emergency.”

Each facility contains five sets of equipment including portable backup generators, pumps, standardized couplings and hoses to be deployed into the field, and will undergo regular testing for operability.

According to Andy Jaffe, SIOR, “Their final decision to occupy was the large amount of land on-site, and overhead doors that aligned for ease of ingress and egress of their equipment.  Also, it was a clear spanned building, which permits movement of their equipment, and proximity to the airport and freeway accessibility were key factors.”

The sale was valued at $3.9 million.
