Opus Bringing Much-Needed, Spec Industrial Development to Tempe

With significant demand for modern industrial space in the surrounding area, Opus is developing, designing and constructing a two-building, 197,000-square-foot speculative industrial project in the Phoenix suburb of Tempe, Ariz. According to JLL research, industrial vacancy in the Tempe submarket in Q4 2021 was about 4.4%, one of the lowest rates in the region. 

Located at 1320 West Warner Road, the Warner Commerce Center is in a prime location with easy access to the Maricopa and 202 freeways that give tenants a gateway to the entire Phoenix metropolitan area, southern California and Mexico. A variety of restaurants and retail stores are in the immediate vicinity.

The site of a former office building, the 18-acre infill site will undergo a transformation to become the ideal site for manufacturing or distribution (including last-mile distribution). Each of the buildings in Warner Commerce Center will be 98,500 square feet and suitable for two to three tenants. They will both feature 32-foot clear height and combined, the buildings offer 40 rear-load dock doors, four drive-in doors, 64 dedicated trailer parking stalls and 392 vehicle parking stalls.

Pre-leasing has begun for the buildings, which are slated for completion in March 2023.
