PHOENIX – Lincoln Property Company (LPC) and industrial specialists in the Phoenix office of Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) have collaborated to attract corporate design/build projects to a major new, multi-employer business park named Goodyear AirPark in Goodyear, Ariz.
The announcement comes on the heels of a joint venture formed between LPC and property owner Carefree Partners Investments. LPC will be the project’s design-build developer, based on the firm’s national scope, local office accessibility and ability to deliver an array of high-end design-build products. Jones Lang LaSalle Managing Directors Anthony J. Lydon, SIOR, and Marc Hertzberg, SIOR, serve as the project’s exclusive marketing coordinators.
The project, at build-out, has the potential to add approximately 4,000 new jobs to the market.
“We’re on the front end of the next wave of industrial building,” said Lincoln Property Company Executive Vice President David Krumwiede. “It is the opportune time to capture employer interest and make very big, very positive, very lasting contributions to the Valley’s job growth.”
“Goodyear is the Valley’s gateway from Southern California. Employers seeking new space solutions in Arizona can take advantage of our 30 to 40 percent operational cost savings, and the 267 acres of shovel-ready land that Goodyear AirPark provides to respond to their demand,” said Lydon. “LPC also has the financial and construction expertise to build exactly what corporate employers need, whether it is office, industrial, flex or research space. That gives us tremendous leverage toward our mission: to attract businesses that will provide long-term value to the greater West Valley market.”
According to JLL, only 10 percent of Goodyear’s 189 square miles is currently developed, offering significant opportunity for site selection and design-build activity. Current nearby industrial employers include Amazon, Macys, SubZero, Cancer Treatment Centers of America and Dick’s Sporting Goods.
Goodyear AirPark is located just south of the southwest corner of Litchfield Road and the newly widened Highway 85, directly south of the Goodyear Airport. Its 267 acres include flexible/divisible lot sizes with Highway 85 frontage and direct access to I-10 (via the I-10 reliever highway), a bicoastal, federal corridor that serves as the metro area’s main transportation artery. The site is also in close proximity to I-8 and the proposed Loop 202 and under construction Loop 303 freeways.
Goodyear AirPark offers variablezoning and is Foreign Trade Zone capable, which translates into a potential 75 percent reduction in real property tax and personal property (equipment) tax and duty deferral or elimination.
