Listen to this article

Cushman & Wakefield has arranged the sale of the Tucson Commerce Center, a portfolio of three brand new Class A industrial/logistics buildings totaling 806,606 square feet (SF) on approximately 47.5 acres in Tucson, Arizona.

Owned and developed by Flint Development, the recently delivered state-of-the-art project was more than 91 per cent leased to five tenants, including some prominent global and regional brands, at the time of sale. Tucson Commerce Center was sold in two separate transactions to two different buyers for a combined transactional value of approximately US $118.65 million.

Bridge Investment Group, a leading, vertically integrated real estate investment manager working within its Opportunity Zone strategy, acquired Building II, a 259,274 SF multi-tenant building, and Building III, a 244,889 SF multi-tenant building, totaling a combined 504,163 SF on 30.23 acres for US $79 million. Building II is 100 per cent leased to two tenants and Building III is approximately 70.5% leased to two tenants, with a single vacant suite. A separate buyer acquired Building I, a fully leased 302,443-SF single-tenant building on 17.35 acres, for approximately US $39.65 million. Flint Development will be staying involved in the project with Bridge as a joint venture partner.

Cushman & Wakefield Executive Vice Chair Will Strong, Senior Director Kirk Kuller, Director Michael Matchett, and colleagues Molly Hunt, and Dean Wiley of the firm’s National Industrial Advisory Group – Mountain West represented the seller, Flint Development, in both transactions. CBRE’s Tim Healy and Joe Orscheln provided market leasing advisory.

“Flint Development had the vision to construct an exceptional industrial project in a premier infill location to cater to the ongoing activity from logistics tenants, which have been a key driver of recent demand, with distribution and warehousing space near the Tucson International Airport receiving particular interest,” says Kuller. “With more than 91per cent tenancy, the buildings have each had success and provide steady, long-term cash flow, while the vacant suite, encompassing 72,169 SF in Building III, offers a value creation opportunity through lease-up to achieve full stabilization.”

Located at 3610 East Valencia Road, Tucson Commerce Center features modern design and functionality including 32-ft clear heights, abundant dock loading and grade loading, ample car and trailer parking, exterior LED lighting, ESFR sprinklers, and more. The property is strategically positioned near I-10, offering immediate access to the population center, Central Business District (CBD), and Tucson International Airport. Additionally, Valencia Road, the region’s longest urban thoroughfare, directly connects to I-19, I-10, and Arizona State Route 86. The Southern California ports are also within proximity for logistics services.

“Tucson’s distinctive location near the U.S./Mexico border, coupled with its extensive transportation infrastructure, positions it as an ideal hub for trade, facilitating the seamless connection of people and products in today’s competitive global marketplace,” Matchett adds.  

According to Cushman & Wakefield’s latest research, although there has been some recent adjusting in the industrial sector, the Phoenix Metro industrial market has reported an incredible 48 consecutive quarters (12 years) of positive net absorption starting in Q2-2012 through Q1-2024 amounting to nearly 130 million square feet of occupancy growth.
