Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee signs lease at Renaissance Square

Hines, the international real estate firm, announced today that the Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee has signed a 7,535-square-foot lease in Renaissance Square, a two-building, 965,000-square-foot Class A office complex located in the hub of downtown Phoenix.

Super Bowl XLIX is scheduled to be played at University of Phoenix Stadium on February 1, 2015, marking Arizona’s second Super Bowl in seven years.

Hines Managing Director Chris Anderson said, “We are honored that One Renaissance Square is the official headquarters building of the Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee. They are an outstanding addition to an already world-class tenant roster.”

“Renaissance Square is one of the premier office buildings in Phoenix, and we are thrilled to call it our new home for the next year. We look forward to hosting the world’s biggest single-day sporting event in 2015, all the surrounding activities, and the 2015 Pro Bowl,” said Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee Chairman David Rousseau.

One and Two Renaissance Square were designed by the architecture firm Emery, Roth & Sons, Inc., and were completed in 1987 and 1989 respectively. One Renaissance Square is 25-stories tall, and Two Renaissance Square contains 27 stories. The buildings are clad in red granite, connected by a pedestrian sky bridge, and boast numerous on-site amenities.

Renaissance Square is leased to large corporate tenants, such as Bryan Cave LLP, Ernst & Young and Quarles & Brady LLP, as well as many GSA tenants and prominent local businesses.

The Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee was represented in lease negotiations by Brad Anderson of CBRE. Jerry Noble of Cushman & Wakefield represented Hines, the building’s owner and property manager.

Hines Hires CBRE as Exclusive Leasing Agent For Renaissance Square

 

The Phoenix office of Hines announced that CBRE has been awarded the exclusive leasing assignment for Renaissance Square, a 2-building, 965,000 SF office complex in Downtown Phoenix.

Renaissance Square is owned by the Hines U.S. Core Office Fund, L.P. and the property is managed by Hines.

This assignment marks CBRE’s first opportunity to work for Hines in Metro Phoenix. The leasing team is Jerry Noble, Patrick Devine, Greg Mayer and Katie Kelley of CBRE’s Phoenix office.

“Renaissance Square’s architecture is timeless, its image is first-class and it is owned by one of the strongest international real estate firms — Hines,” Devine said. “This property has a lot to sell — image, location, stability, to name a few, and it can definitely compete with newer deliveries in the downtown market. Tenants are looking for stable, solid owners and operators, and that’s what they’ll find at Renaissance Square.”

“The Phoenix recovery is underway, and Renaissance Square is in a great position as a leading Downtown office property.  Businesses will be well-served by the property and leasing teams we have in place,” said Blake Williams, managing director of the Hines U.S. Core Office Fund.

One and Two Renaissance Square were designed by the architecture firm Emery, Roth & Sons, Inc., and were completed in 1987 and 1989, respectively. One Renaissance Square is 25-stories tall, and Two Renaissance Square contains 27 stories. The buildings are clad in red granite, and are connected by a pedestrian sky bridge. The project provides parking for 1,690 cars in its two adjacent garages.

Renaissance Square is 70% leased to large corporate tenants, such as Ernst & Young, Quarles & Brady, and MidFirst Bank, as well as many prominent local businesses.

Renaissance Square has received the Energy Star label for energy efficiency each year from 2008 through present. In 2010, both buildings received Gold certification under the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED rating system for Existing Buildings (EB).
