     Mentors and protégés gathered November 4 at The Gladly for a socially-distanced reception, presentations and dinner. The 24 protégés, grouped into five teams, each pitched a development proposal to a potential equity partner.

      As part of their equity partner’s review of the development proposals, judges were looking for the project that meets the highest and best use of the site as well as provides the most optimal economic returns (projected investment returns).

       This year’s site was the NWC North 56th Street & West Galveston Street in Chandler. Teams had the option of developing the entire site or a portion of it. Team 3’s Eagle Landing concept took home top honors. Team members included Michael Roberts, JDM Partners; John Coughlin, Prologis; Diego Almaral, Strategic Office Partners; Alex Anstey, Willmeng Construction; and Drew Sampson, Avison Young. Cathy Thuringer of Trammell Crow Company was mentor of the winning team.

      “The YPG teams this year were faced with the challenge of working on their projects primarily through Zoom calls, but each team rose to the occasion and delivered very thoughtful development ideas for the site,” said Thuringer. “I am always impressed with the level of creativity and enthusiasm the protégés bring to this program and am honored to have once again served as a mentor for this great program.”

       Additional mentors for this year’s class were Phil Breidenbach, Colliers; John Orsak, Lincoln Property Company; and Jeff Foster, Prologis. Judges were Phil Haenel, Cushman & Wakefield; and Cullen Mahoney, Trammell Crow Company.

     Program chairs were Mollie Zemer, Barclay Group; and Josh Tracy, Ryan Companies US.

     “The YPG program gives Developing Leaders from all sides of the industry a unique opportunity to learn about how a development comes together while collaborating and networking with their peers,” Zemer said.

Capital Hall Partners completes 1st Opportunity Zone redevelopment in the Tempe Maker District

Capital Hall Partners completes 1st Opportunity Zone redevelopment in the Tempe Maker District

The HUB, a Capital Hall Partners redevelopment project, was recently completed and is ready for tenants. After 15 months of planning, design, engineering, and construction, the once functionally-obsolete 1960s industrial warehouse building has been completely reconstructed into a modern, versatile, healthy and sustainable office building.

The HUB is a 50,320 SF single-story building located in the newly designated Tempe Maker District and in a Qualified Opportunity Zone. The property sits on the NWC of Hardy and Alameda Drive — a prime location minutes from seven major freeways, ASU, Downtown Tempe, Sky Harbor International Airport, 218 restaurants, 46 hotels, and two major shopping centers.

The HUB redevelopment concentrated on achieving three goals – build an environmentally sustainable project, design a healthy building that employees will enjoy and feel safe, and lastly, lower the building’s operational cost.

To achieve these goals, all possible building demolition components were repurposed or recycled.  The HUB features a new 14,000 SF outdoor workspace that serves as the main entry and building amenity. The outdoor workspace area is shaded with 458 photovoltaic panels engineered with a “net zero” energy goal to offset nearly the entire electrical demand of the redeveloped office building.

New high-efficiency dual panel windows and doors were cut into the exterior walls providing amply natural lighting to the interior spaces. The east, south, and north windows are shaded to further reduce heat gain and provide a unique architectural look.  In addition, the existing roll-up doors were replaced with glass roll-up doors opening the interior to exterior.

These doors are multi-purpose – provide an open feel to the building, provide natural light to the interior, and increase the outdoor air intake.  The new roof with a 10-year guarantee will reflect heat, increase insulation, and eliminate water leakage ultimately reducing mold and mildew.  The 4.3-acre property features new drought-tolerant landscape designed to reduce water use and a pervious surface parking lot designed and engineered to reduce the heat island and reduce stormwater runoff. The new LED lighting illuminates the parking lot that will accommodate six cars per 1,000 SF of office area.

“Our goal at the beginning was to create a unique and interesting workspace that is healthy, environmentally sustainable, socially responsible, and financially viable.  The results of the redevelopment have exceeded our expectations.  We look forward to incorporating the planned state of the art technologies for a tenant to lower operating costs, increase healthy building standards, and maintain our goal for building a healthy and sustainable project that will lift the economic viability of the area,” said Michael Bronska, Managing Member.

The tenant improvements planned for the interior incorporates touchless everything including doors, restrooms, and high efficiency LED lighting.  Also, to be installed are energy-efficient HVAC systems that will promote enhanced air exchanges, air filtration, and reduced operating costs for tenants while providing the required comfort and safety of employees.

NAI Horizon negotiates $4.15M land sale of property that will house 135,000 SF flex building

     PHOENIX, ARIZ. (Nov. 10, 2020) – NAI Horizon Senior Vice President Rick Foss represented the seller in the $4.15 million sale of 9.6 acres on which the buyer plans to construct a 135,000 SF office/showroom/warehouse building on the site.

NAI Horizon represented the Thomas and Olivia DuVall Trust of Phoenix in the land sale at 5824 S. 38th St., in Phoenix. The property was in escrow for almost a year while the buyer/developer rezoned it from S-1 to a Commerce Park/General Commerce Park (CP/GCP) option. The buyer/developer will construct the building for its tenant.

“This location is one of the last remaining large, undeveloped infill parcels in the Central Phoenix, Sky Harbor or North Tempe submarkets,” Foss said. “The sale price establishes a high-sale comp for infill land.”

The buyer, Bondar Holdings, LLC, an Arizona limited liability company, was represented by Ton Bagneschi of Insight Land and Investment.

Cottonwood Bar & Grill in Sun Lakes Community sizzles with modern new look, safety measures

Cottonwood Bar & Grill in Sun Lakes Community sizzles with modern new look, safety measures

       PHOENIX, ARIZ. (Nov. 9, 2020) – A restaurant at one of Arizona’s iconic active adult communities recently underwent a refresh that also adheres to safety protocols implemented during COVID-19.

The Sun Lakes Community in Sun Lakes, Arizona, wanted to refresh the restaurant and bar, Cottonwood Bar & Grill, 25630 S. Brentwood Drive, with a new look and feel that made the establishment more appealing to members as well as its guests.

“The space had good bones, but the bar had carpet, mirrored ceilings and 80s lighting that needed to hit the dumpster,” said Beth Katz of KatzDesignGroup. “They wanted a space to bring their kids and grandkids to that felt modern, fresh and inviting.”

          KatzDesignGroup moved the beverage and condiment servery station to the unused area of the bar, created a new permanent buffet and created more flexible areas for gathering in the bar dining area.

“The client hosts numerous community parties and events and wanted to have a more permanent buffet for those events,” Katz said. “Relocating the servery area opened the restaurant and bar space, allowing more seating and natural light. The light brick, wallcovering and warm woods all helped create an updated aesthetic.

“We put in a light LVT (luxury vinyl) wood floor, brick pilasters, wallcovering, Crypton velvets and faux alligator vinyls,” Katz said. “We installed warm wood paneling and branded tables with custom twisted metal bases. The lighting above the bar takes elements of the metal fencing at a ballpark with the round baseball-style LED Edison bulb lamps.”

The space always provided a sports bar atmosphere but now is more like an upscale clubhouse. The tables have been socially distanced with temporary Plexiglas partitions installed between the booths for the health and safety of diners.

“I watched a webinar on Restaurant Design During Covid and they spoke about an antimicrobial paper for multiple usage. I mentioned it to the client as an option for single-use menus and he was thrilled with a less expensive safeguard for Cottonwood Bar & Grill patrons.”

The project team comprised Mike Hall, Michael Hall Architect; Kirk Hoffman, Maven Engineering; and John Arnett, Farnsworth Construction. Notable subcontractors included LionCraft (custom lighting, booths, banquette and millwork).

The lighting above the bar takes elements of the metal fencing at a ballpark with the round baseball-style LED Edison bulb lamps.
