ViaWest Group, a Phoenix-based, full-service commercial real estate firm, began work in Goodyear on the latest Valley location for the Sub-Zero Group, Inc., which, at completion, will total more than one million square feet of manufacturing space in Goodyear for the major kitchen appliance company. ViaWest Group, Scottsdale Investment Management (“SIM”), and their building partners Willmeng Construction, DLR Group and Kimley-Horn, broke ground on the state-of-the-art, 599,351 square foot build-to-suit industrial warehouse that is the third facility the company operates in the West Valley.

“As we plan to execute expansion aligned with our growth strategy, we are proud to continue our partnership with the city of Goodyear. The expansive manufacturing and distribution footprint will give us opportunity for long term growth,” said Scott Wareing, Sr. Vice president of Operations at Sub-Zero.

The Sub-Zero warehouse and distribution center, sitting on 36.44 acres, is located on the Southwest corner of Camelback Road and Cotton Lane, along the Loop 303.

Scottsdale Investment Management (SIM) is the partner on this industrial build-to-suit project with ViaWest for Sub-Zero. SIM has been active in both the industrial and single-family rental spaces and continues to build on its reputation as a strong real estate owner focused on strategically-located real estate throughout the Southwest.

“Sub-Zero enjoys an incredible reputation within the luxury appliance space, and we at SIM were thrilled to partner with ViaWest in expanding their presence to over 1M square feet in Goodyear. High quality projects that meaningfully impact our community like this have been our focus over SIM’s 45-year history, and we appreciate Goodyear’s partnership in making this happen,” said Ed Grant, partner at SIM.

“We are very excited to commence construction on this Class A, build-to-suit industrial project for Sub-Zero,” said Steven Schwarz, Founding Partner at ViaWest Group. “They are a brand of the highest quality, and we are excited to align our common values and vision with theirs to bring this project to fruition. Our team of SIM as our land partners and our development team of Willmeng Construction, DLR, and Kimley-Horn all also share a results-driven perspective which meshes well with the City of Goodyear and the amazing partner they have been in this process.”
