Construction on the Southern Industrial Center, an award-winning, Class A project in Buckeye, Arizona has been completed. Undertaken by Parklane Development Group and Miramar Industrial Partners, the 1.2 million square foot centre was financed by Bank OZK. It features 202 sectional overhead dock doors, all 40-foot clear height. There are four drive-through dock doors and reinforced speed bays. Furthermore, there is parking room for 250 trailers and 940 cars.
The warehouse and logistics facility was the winner of the WESTMARC 2023 Best of the West award. It offers direct accessibility to the Interstate 101 and the Arizona State Route 85. Further, this makes the project a day’s drive away from the Southern California ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.
Features at The Southern Industrial Center
Located approximately in the centre of Buckeye, on of the fastest-growing cities in the country, the project has implemented great measures to reduce its carbon footprint. This includes the precast panels on site that were fabricated by Graycor. There are highly reflective TPO roofs and desert landscaping with intelligent irrigation controls. To maximize interior natural light, clerestory windows were installed. These also reduce the energy consumption on sit. Additionally, shade canopies also help reduce heat gain in the interior environment.
“Southern Industrial Center is a reflection of our highly collaborative development, construction and leasing teams,” said Parklane Development Group Chief Executive Officer Ted Fentin. In addition, “this project aligns well with market and industry trends. It also sits within a strong labor market, with well-positioned access to regional and interstate highways. It will make the right tenant a very successful home.”
“Southern Industrial Center was designed uniquely for e-commerce, warehouse and logistics tenants seeking space in one of the fastest growing cities – and industrial markets – in the U.S.,” said Royle from the Phoenix Office of JLL
