LGE Design Build, a full-service design and general contracting firm, and winner of AZ RED 2021 General Contractor of the Year, has announced the groundbreaking of a new state of the art industrial project.
Conveniently located just south of Interstate 10 at the northwest corner of N. Miller Rd. and Lower Buckeye Rd., 10 West Commerce Park is a quick 30-minute drive to Phoenix’s Sky Harbor Airport and a six-hour drive to the Los Angeles and Long Beach sea ports in Calif.
Creation, based in Phoenix, Ariz. is the project developer.
LGE Design Build’s Director of Preconstruction Blake Wells said, “We are proud of the work our architecture team has done and we look forward to finishing construction in record time, thanks to our streamlined design-build process.”
LGE expects to meet the grand opening target date in early 2022. The project consists of 860,602 square-feet, with potential to expand the footprint to an additional 211,000 square-feet.
10 West Commerce Park’s modern architecture design consists of large glass window elements and stamped concrete. The cross-dock distribution center will also offer best-in-class features to the end user.
“We were able to achieve a modern aesthetic using conventional materials in an unconventional way,” said Mike Russo, designer at LGE. “The Corner Entry is glazed from end to end, with the front Concrete Tilt Panel spanning over the entire width of the Glazing below, creating a seamless entry. The Aluminum Storefront system doubles as a shade screen with a randomized mullion pattern. This pattern carries through to the canopy below, with a mixture of a solid and open trellis canopy to create a striking entry sequence.”
“We are so excited the developer is investing in Buckeye,” said Buckeye Mayor Eric Orsborn. “There is a tremendous amount of interest from businesses to relocate to Buckeye, but they prefer buildings ready to move into. LGE’s attractive, new state-of-the-art facility provides the opportunity for one or more businesses to relocate to Buckeye quickly and provide additional job opportunities to our residents.”
The City of Buckeye is the second fastest growing city in the U.S. in terms of year over year percentage growth and is likely to stay in the top 10 for years to come. With a planning area of over 640 square miles, Buckeye is only five percent built out today.
