State-of-the-Art Phoenix Industrial Asset Sells Prior to Completion

JLL completes $32+ million sale of Opus Airport Industrial

PHOENIX, November 29, 2016 – Speculative investment into the industrial sector continues to pay off in Phoenix.  On behalf of The Opus Group, JLL's Capital Markets experts today announced the firm completed the sale of Opus Airport Industrial, located in Phoenix. Principal Global Investors purchased the yet-to-be-completed 393,292-square-foot, Class A warehouse for $32.65 million. 

Managing Directors Bo Mills and Mark Detmer led the JLL team on the transaction.  

"Opus Airport Industrial will be a tremendous new asset in the already very strong Phoenix industrial market," said Mills. "This sale shows that Phoenix is the right market for building high-quality industrial assets on spec as investors continue to place capital. We anticipate more activity like this, especially as Opus remains one of the preeminent developers in Phoenix and Principal stays active as a landlord." 

Opus Airport Industrial is located within four miles of Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and less than one mile from connections to major thoroughfares via Interstate 17. The building sits on 23 acres of land and upon completion will feature a clear height of 36 feet, 96 dock high doors and four grade level doors, as well as 62 trailer stalls that are expandable to accommodate 106 trailers. The building will also have cross dock capability and ESFR sprinklers.
