Construction could begin this year on the first phase of a large-scale commerce park near Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport that could eventually bring 2,000 jobs in aerospace, e-commerce and manufacturing to the booming Southeast Valley transportation hub.
Scottsdale-based Marwest Enterprises has submitted plans for a $100 million employment complex on an 80-acre site near Ray and Hawes roads in Mesa, about a quarter-mile north of Gateway’s runways.
Conceptual designs for Marwest at Gateway show space for nine industrial buildings ranging in size from 24,000 square feet to 250,000 square feet. The plan also includes a 24,000-square-foot office building, a restaurant and a 122-room hotel.
