Opus Initiates First Phase of Master-Planned Next Generation Industrial Development in Goodyear, Arizona

​Opus is beginning the first phase of a next generation, master-planned, 95.6-acre industrial development in Goodyear, Ariz. Located at the business-friendly Goodyear Crossing Industrial Park, the property is adjacent to the Union Pacific rail line. It is one of the largest zoned, shovel-ready, rail-served sites inside the 303 Corridor in Southwest Phoenix.

The Opus development will be a strong addition to the established industrial park, which is anchored by notable tenants like Amazon and Macy’s. Qualified users will also benefit from key entitlements, as a Foreign Trade Zone magnet designation is in place offering reduced or eliminated duty fees, decreased supply chain time, increased security, and potential for reduced property taxes of up to 72%.

The first construction project for Opus is a 530,349-square-foot cross-docked industrial building, which will be one of only two buildings in the submarket offering at least 500,000-square-feet of available space for larger tenants. With 36-foot clear ceiling heights, it will be devisable to 100,000-square-feet and have four office glass pods—one at each corner of the building. Accommodating up to four tenants, the building will have expansion capabilities to more than 1.1-million-square-feet.

This Opus industrial building will also feature:

  • 7-inch slab;
  • HVAC-ready R-39 insulation under roof;
  • fully-secured, 100% concrete truck courts;
  • 289 automobile stalls;
  • 115 excess trailer parking stalls; and
  • LEED certification.

Completion of this first building in the master planned development is slated for fall 2017.
