JLL represented the buyer, a private charitable foundation that purchased the asset. Additionally, the buyer hired JLL’s leasing team to market the available 55,139-square-foot contiguous suite. Two fortune 500 companies occupy nearly half of the property.
Situated on 7.96 acres at 3930 East Watkins St., Southbank Business Park’s central Phoenix location provides easy access to the entire metro area. The property is adjacent and visible to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and minutes from Downtown Tempe and ASU, which provides multiple amenities, including hotels, restaurants, parks and fitness. Additionally, the property’s central Phoenix location places it within an eight-hour drive to international ports in both California and Mexico. 3930 East Watkins St. features 24-foot clear heights, wide column spacing, multiple loading positions and ample parking.
The JLL Capital Markets team representing the buyer was led by Managing Director Brian Ackerman, and the JLL Leasing team marketing the tenant space is being led by Managing Director Steve Larsen.
“The buyer was attracted to this location because of the superior quality of construction, the institutional tenants that lease space at the property and the proximity to the airport,” Ackerman said. “The property is also easily accessible to all parts of metro Phoenix.”
