Arizona-based Av-Air, Inc. has hired Sun State Builders to construct its new 2-building, 162,500+ SF headquarters for a total project cost of nearly $15 million.
The 6.17 acre parcel at 6877 W. Frye Rd., Chandler, fronts the Loop 202 Freeway in Santan Technology Park. Av-Air purchased the property and broke ground soon after. Andy Ogan, Principal with Lee & Associates Arizona negotiated the transaction for the land and build-to-suit project. Architectural services were provided by Wes Balmer with Balmer Architectural Group. Tom Altieri of MidFirst Bank provided the financing with an SBA 504 loan. According to Altieri, it was one of the largest SBA loans done in Phoenix-area history. The new buildings will consist of a 92,500 SF building with 20,000 SF of office space and a 70,000 SF building storage/distribution building.
Both buildings will feature metal deck, steel trusses, 30’ clear height, grade level and truck well loading doors. The project is estimated to be completed in the fall of 2014. Av-Air, a provider of aftermarket aviation parts and services, will vacate 67,000 SF it currently owns & occupies in its Chandler headquarters at 33 South 56th Street and 1510 West Bell De Mar Drive in Tempe and consolidate operations in the new facility. Av-Air will be offering the 67,000 SF in both facilities for lease, Ogan will be the listing broker for both properties.
