“It is a testament to our community that Morgan Stanley is continuing to invest in and expand its footprint in Gilbert,” said Gilbert Mayor, Brigette Peterson. “The Fortune 100 company’s expansion at Rivulon will create even more high-wage jobs, making Morgan Stanley one of the largest private employers in Gilbert. This will not only benefit those in Gilbert, but all of the Phoenix-metro area.”

Morgan Stanley currently occupies 20,000 square feet of office space in Rivulon’s 111 E. Rivulon Blvd. building. Their additional 50,000-square-foot office will be located in The Commons at Rivulon, a multi-building creative office neighborhood along Rivulon Boulevard.

The global financial service company’s newest office at The Commons is ideal for today’s workforce post-pandemic. Its integrated campus environment caters to technology, creative and collaborative tenants in a large, open, and flexible space. The dedicated neighborhood features outdoor common spaces, access to walking paths, and nearby fitness, retail, and restaurants.

In addition to Morgan Stanley, the 250-acre Rivulon development is currently home to a powerhouse of national brands, including Deloitte, Isagenix International, Amerifirst Financial, Bank of America and Merrill Lynch.
