Gilbert’s first women-focused mixed-use building, Building 313, is officially under development and a groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for Tuesday, June 7 at 8:15 a.m.

The $3.3 million project, named Building 313, will be a 15,602 square-foot owner-occupied mixed-use space in the Heritage District of downtown Gilbert. Owner and visionary Lynne King Smith, a Gilbert-based entrepreneur who owns a successful entertainment ticketing company called TicketForce, will move her business’ headquarters to the new building, occupying 4,600 square-feet for its 20 employees.

The project will also feature a 4,300 square-foot restaurant or local brewery with a 775 square-foot patio with greenery facing Gilbert Road; a 2,600 square-foot co-working space for women named Thrive; and a 1,500 square-foot rooftop bar with a west-facing patio.

King Smith’s vision for Building 313 included bringing in other women professionals to bring her dream to reality. She partnered with Lorraine Bergman, well-known CEO of East Valley-based Caliente Construction as the general contractor for the project, and sourced Dina Rosas of D Rosas Interior Group for her innovative interior design of the new TicketForce offices, which include shared workspaces, broadcast room, relaxation room and quiet spaces.

Building 313 is committed to fill its space with Arizona-based businesses. For the restaurant space and rooftop bar, King Smith is seeking an Arizona-based brewery or farm-to-table restaurant with a commitment to local food sourcing with Gilbert and Arizona farms. Thrive, the women’s coworking space, will be the perfect spot for networking, training and will be full of unique and collaborative spaces to work. It will also feature a 430-square-foot east-facing patio for intimate private events.

King Smith and her husband/business partner Brad Smith have been Gilbert residents since 2002.
