Lincoln Property Company Sells Project Near Sky Harbor Airport

Lincoln Property Company announced the sale of Lincoln Sky Harbor to LTJ Skyline/Grand Stable and Carriage.  Lincoln Sky Harbor is situated on 7.57 acres and consists of three buildings totaling approximately 130,000 SF.  The property is located at the northwest corner of 16th Street and Interstate 17, in Phoenix, and neighbors Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport is ranked as one of the nation’s top 10 busiest airports for passenger traffic with a $79M daily economic impact. “Being adjacent to one of the nation’s top ten busiest airports has been a key factor to the success of the development,” said David Krumwiede, Executive Vice President, Lincoln Property Company.

Noted as a successful in-fill project, the industrial project was developed by Lincoln Property Company in partnership with INVESCO, a leading independent global investment management firm operating in more than 20 countries.

“Lincoln Sky Harbor is an attractive investment for many reasons, including the stable tenant base, the freeway exposure and proximity to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport,” continued Krumwiede.  “This infill project is one of many Lincoln projects that have capitalized on under-utilized properties.”

Lincoln Property Company was awarded the “Spec Industrial Development of the Year – 100,000 to 250,000 SF” for the Lincoln Sky Harbor project by the Arizona Chapter of the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties (NAIOP).

The property is 93.4% occupied with tenants such as GardaWorld, one of the top 10, fastest-growing security companies globally. GardaWorld is headquartered in Montreal, Canada, and provides business solutions and security services around the world.  Other tenants include Premier Lighting, 1-800-Flowers and The Synthetic Grass Store. Lincoln Property Company will continue to manage the property under the new ownership.

“LPC is pleased to continue serving as the property manager,” said Alisa Timm, CPM, Director of Management Services, Lincoln Property Company.  “Lincoln is known for managing properties with the philosophy of making decisions as if the asset was our own.  LPC will continue to provide the highest level of management service to the new ownership.”

Lincoln Property Company was represented by Daniel P. Calihan, Pat Feeney, Joe Porter III, and Rusty Kennedy of CBRE.  LTJ Skyline/Grand Stable and Carriage negotiated on their own behalf.

HMSHost Brings New Dining Experience To Sky Harbor

HMSHost, the world leader in creating dining and shopping for travel venues, is transforming the Phoenix traveler’s experience at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport’s Terminal 4, bringing more than 20 new restaurants including local favorites like Sauce, Barrio Cafe, La Grande Orange and Cowboy Ciao, along with national brands like Starbucks.

The update is a result of last year’s decision by the city of Phoenix to award HMSHost a 10-year food and beverage agreement, following a 2011 competitive bid process.  

The first restaurants, Sauce, Dilly’s Deli and Focaccia Fiorentine, opened recently and feature grab-and-go items, perfect for travelers to take on the plane. Staples such as El Bravo, Paradise Bakery and Cafe and Starbucks will remain in Terminal 4, but will be moving to new locations. 

“This is a busy and exciting time of year for vacations and summer travel and we are very happy to be able to begin providing a new experience at Sky Harbor Airport that will truly showcase an authentic taste of Phoenix,” said Steve Douglas, vice president of business development for HMSHost.  “Terminal 4 is the busiest spot in one of America’s busiest airports and we’re bringing out the best of the best to showcase the great dining in the city of Phoenix.” 

Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton said the update to Terminal 4, when complete, will reflect the flavor of America’s sixth largest city. 

“When travelers come to visit Phoenix or pass through our airport, I want them to know what Phoenix is all about, and soon they’ll be able to taste it,” Mayor Greg Stanton said. “They’ll know that our city and our airport support our local businesses, and that Phoenix is an epicenter of high-quality, modern and authentic dining.” 

Local Phoenix restaurateurs Sam Fox of Fox Restaurant Group and Bob Lynn of LGO Hospitality have partnered with HMSHost to bring an unprecedented level of culinary expertise to Terminal 4 throughout its North and South wings. Travelers passing through the A gates will find the full range of Sam Fox’s food imagination: Modern Burger’s juicy burger sliders, and Blanco Tacos + Tequila’s delicious, award-winning traditional Mexican fare of guacamole, tacos and margaritas inspired by Baja and Sonora. 

The transformation, which features a new off-site commissary and technological improvements that will speed and ease service for travelers, has already begun. 

“This transformation was carefully planned and balances the practical needs of travelers with a range of options, pre-security and post-security, for on-the-go or for those with more time to spare,” said Derek Boettcher, senior director of food & beverage for HMSHost at Sky Harbor Airport. 

Visitors to the D Concourse will enjoy Bob Lynn’s popular LGO restaurant brands.  The La Grande Orange experience will offer four distinct and delicious options — LGO Burger, LGO Deli and the LGO Pizza with Grateful Spoon Gelato.

The dining experience at Phoenix Sky Harbor extends further with these enticing offerings:

  • Fans of the New York Pizza Department (NYPD) will tell you it’s the best authentic New York-style pizza in Arizona.
  • Press Coffee offers more than outstanding coffee with fresh roasted beans.  Press offers salads, daily soups, and Panini sandwiches to satisfy any appetite.
  • One of Phoenix’s must-try restaurants, Cowboy Ciao is coming to the high B gates in Sky Harbor’s international concourse. What started as a very unique Southwest-meets-Italian premise has evolved into a style best described as eclectic American.
  • The French countryside makes a trip to this Concourse in the form of la Madeleine, luring travelers with healthy offerings including salads, vegetarian fare, and delicious sweet treats.
  • Barrio Café is the creation of chef and owner Silvana Salcido-Esparza who makes her Mexico-inspired dishes a must-taste for everyone. Barrio Café will be located in the D concourse. Chef Esparza is a 2010 and 2011 James Beard Foundation nominee for Best Chef-Southwest. 
  • Also in B and C gates, HMSHost’s busy baristas at Starbucks will fuel weary travelers with great beverages and snacks — no matter what time zone they are entering or have just departed. 
  • Travelers to the C gates will find the much-beloved Paradise Bakery (now open), along with a Tucson tradition come-to-life in Sir Veza’s Taco Garage — offering something for everyone from hand-bored guacamole and imaginatively sauced wings, to Nitro Nachos and Tricked Out Tacos, as well as the local legend in coffee, Cartel Coffee Lab. 
  • The pre-security Terminal 4 lobby will showcase Bob Lynn’s Chelsea’s Kitchen, specializing in gourmet burgers, upscale taco platters, rotisserie meats and American comfort food.  It will be joined by Sam Fox’s Sauce (now open) where guests will get a full complement of pizza, salad and pasta.  Also pre-security, Starbucks fans will greet their favorite java in the lobby as they wait happily for family members.
