Hearts and Smiles, LLC, an Arizona Limited Liability Company has purchased the industrial building located at 1445 S. McClintock Dr. in Tempe.  The investor purchased the 38,400-square-foot building for $1,800,000.

“The building is a unique asset because of the stable investment income and re-development opportunities later down the line,” says Philip Wurth, CCIM, executive vice president with Colliers International in Greater Phoenix.  The owner sees value in investing in the long-term future of Tempe and redevelopment opportunities along Apache Boulevard and the light rail corridor.”

Hearts and Smiles, LLC purchased the building from Ronald L. Lewis and Lydia C. Lewis, Trustee.  Wurth represented the seller in the transaction.  Nishel Badiani of Kirans and Associates Realty represented the buyer.
