Sun State Builders Completes Construction on Mesa Industrial Retail Center

Tempe, Arizona– May, 2024 Sun State Builders (SSB) recently completed construction on a $17 million mixed-use industrial center for Greenwood and McKenzie Real Estate Investments. Gateway Quads is a 122,780-square-foot center situated on 10 acres located on East Germann Road and South 80th Street in Mesa. SSB worked with Winston Architects on the design-build project that began construction in August 2023 and finished in late April 2024. 

Gateway Quads is four freestanding buildings that are each 30,680 square feet. Potential tenants can lease an entire building or select to divide into smaller spaces, allowing for up to four smaller spaces beginning at 7,600 square feet. The buildings feature masonry construction with 24-foot ceilings and multiple truck loading areas. 

“This is a unique industrial office facility for the East Valley and specifically Mesa,” explains Andrea Piering, president of Sun State Builders. “It is a mixed-use complex that is geared to small businesses with an opportunity to adapt  for a company’s operational needs.”

Sun State Builders was also selected by Greenwood and McKenzie to oversee and execute the tenant improvement phase of the buildout. As space is leased, Sun State Builders will begin construction for the specific tenants. 

Greenwood and McKenzie is based in Southern California and has developed multiple projects in Arizona. Sun State Builders has worked with the real estate investment and development company for 40 years.
