NAIOP Arizona 2018 Owner and Developer of the Year Lincoln Property Company has closed on 71.5 acres in Glendale, Arizona for $11.7 million, initiating development of Park303. The new $115 million speculative Class A industrial project will have the flexibility to include two buildings totaling 705,531 square feet and 488,995 square feet, or combine into one single building totaling almost 1.26 million square feet.
Park303 is located between Bethany Home Road and Glendale Avenue, with one-quarter mile of freeway exposure along the new Loop 303 and featuring 40’ clear height and more than 540 parking spaces.
“The Park303 development is the newest in a string of projects to emerge along Glendale’s recently annexed 303 corridor,” said City of Glendale Mayor Jerry Weiers. “We are excited to welcome Lincoln Property and this state-of-the-art facility with modern amenities, and know it will continue to increase the momentum created by Red Bull, Ball and Rauch. The project is one of many developments in the area which will positively impact our residents and our economy.”
“We’ve designed Park303 with the flexibility to serve multiple users or combine into a single-building, single-user campus supporting one major employer looking for more than 1 million square feet of space,” said Lincoln Property Company Vice President of Development Doug Klocke. “That meets the space, amenities and parking demands that we’ve seen from today’s very modern industrial tenants, including those in the rapidly-growing e-commerce market.”
In August, LPC sold Lincoln Logistics 40 – a project the company completed in Goodyear in late 2018 with similarly modern amenities – to Nike Inc. The transaction ranks as the year’s highest-priced and largest-sized industrial sale. Nike will use the building for its third U.S. manufacturing facility, where it will employ more than 500 and build soles for Nike Air sneakers.
Park303 will have many common amenities to Lincoln Logistics 40, including 40’ clear height, efficient LED lighting, clerestory class for abundant natural light, ample truck parking and a fully amenitized outdoor space with covered canopies, seating and barbeques. The project will also provide freeway-fronting signage along the Loop 303 and provide employees and visitors easy ingress and egress to the project via two full-diamond freeway interchanges at Bethany Home Road and Glendale Avenue.
Park303 is bounded by the Loop 303, Bethany Home Road, Glendale Avenue and Sarival Road, adjacent to Luke Air Force Base. It sits within the rapidly developing Loop 303 corridor, in an area identified by the City of Glendale as the “New Frontier District” and targeted for economic development. Corporate neighbors to Park303 include Boeing, Mercedes, Microsoft, Red Bull, REI, SubZero and UPS, as well as hundreds of new residential homes.
Park303 will break ground in January 2020 and complete in the third quarter of the same year.
