Close on the heels of its 250,000-square-foot “Building 109” groundbreaking, SkyBridge Arizona has started construction on a second 250,000-square-foot building, “Building 108.” Together, the buildings bring the active Class A industrial construction at SkyBridge Arizona to a half-million square feet.
The developer joined on April 18 with Graycor Construction Company, CBRE - Phoenix and local dignitaries to kick off Building 108. It is the newest building to join the 435-acre mixed-use SkyBridge Arizona master plan, which already includes 134,500 square feet of newly completed office, hangar and aircraft bay space, constructed by Graycor and fully leased by CBRE.
Located along the southwest portion of Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport in Mesa, Arizona, SkyBridge Arizona is slated to become a first-of-its-kind Unified Cargo Processing (UCP) facility, allowing users to complete on-site cargo inspections and processing so that shipments between the U.S. and Mexico can be expedited directly to their destinations in Mexico.
“We have designed and are developing SkyBridge Arizona for the unique needs of those operating in the aviation, air cargo, e-commerce, manufacturing and defense sectors,” said Ariel Picker, President of SkyBridge Arizona and SkyPlus Development. “The tenants who now occupy our SkyBridge buildings 106 and 107 are representative of those sectors. That is gratifying to watch come to fruition, and a positive indication of what lies ahead for this unique development.”
"The ingenuity and quality of the SkyBridge development continues to enhance the East Valley for all involved," said Bridgette Peterson, Mayor for the Town of Gilbert and Chair of the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport Authority. "We appreciate the commitment of SkyBridge to Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport, celebrate this latest groundbreaking and look forward to the many benchmark celebrations to come."
Like Building 109, Building 108 will offer 32’ clear height, a 7” reinforced slab on 4” AMC, 30 dock-high and six ground-level doors, and generous power and parking. The building is divisible, allowing it to serve a wide range of tenant types and sizes.
