Breaking Ground at Thunderbird Commerce Park

Ground was broken at Thunderbird Commerce Park! Situated within the coveted Scottsdale Airpark, this project stands as a significant milestone for the city, Creation and LGE Design Build, responsible for both architecture and construction. Upon completion, Thunderbird Commerce Park will be a 243,000 square feet Class A industrial logistics facility. It will be built with 32-foot clear heights, 130-foot truck court depth, 3,000A of power, four EV dual charging pedestals, 51 truck doors and 322 car parking spaces. 

According to Grant Kingdon, principal of Creation’s Mountain West region, the Scottsdale area’s industrial market is supply-constrained, which leads to the highest rental rates and tightest vacancy levels in metro Phoenix. Kingdon also said in prepared remarks that Thunderbird Commerce Park would attract a variety of tenants in the pharmaceutical, aerospace, electric vehicle and semiconductor sectors, along with traditional distribution and showroom users.

The groundbreaking ceremony was graced by Scottsdale Mayor David Ortega and distinguished members of the city’s council. In a heartfelt gesture, our affiliated nonprofit, the David R. Sellers Foundation, generously donated $20,000 to support the Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children. The foundation focuses on providing support, resources, and assistance to children and families affected by pediatric cancer. They also offer financial aid, emotional support, educational resources, and funding for research related to pediatric cancer.
