At 329,400 square feet, Trammell Crow’s Tolleson Logistics Center is located on 22.2 acres at the southwest corner of 99th Avenue and Van Buren Street, the state-of-the-art Class A industrial building began construction during Q1 2018 with expected completion in July.
An open house was recently hosted at the project with the goals of highlighting construction progress and allowing brokers in the community to get a closer look at the project in hopes of gaining interest from a prospective tenant to lease or buy it. Willmeng’s Project Manager Tom Fyffe described the event as a success, reciting comments from the nearly 80 attendees about the building’s size, construction progress, cleanliness of the job site and locational advantages.
The project’s location in the Southwest Valley submarket is ideal for companies wishing to serve Metro Phoenix and the Southwest region in a single day’s drive, particularly for distribution and e-commerce companies. In fact, 35 million consumers can be served within a single-day’s truck haul from the facility, which is located less than one mile south of a full diamond interchange at 99th Avenue and Interstate 10.
The cross-dock building will be 781 feet long and 421 feet deep with a clear height of 36 feet and 190-foot truck court depth. Loading will be a combination of ramp and dock high with 271 auto parking spaces and 107 trailer parking spaces. The building will be divisible to 100,000 square feet to accommodate single or multiple tenants.
Butler Design Group will serve as the project architect and Willmeng Construction, Inc. as the general contractor. Cadence Bank N.A. is providing construction financing. Gary Anderson, Jim Wilson, Mike Gilbert and Brian Lee of Cushman & Wakefield are marketing the project on behalf of the venture, which includes developer Trammell Crow Company and an institutional investor.
In addition, the venture is donating 1.5 acres along the Van Buren frontage to Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post #6310 for the development of a new 8,000-10,000-square-foot headquarters building. The new facility will serve administration of the organization as well as provide a meeting area for cultural and patriotic events for Tolleson residents.
