January 28, 2020 – Mesa, Ariz. – Willmeng Construction Inc., a Phoenix-based commercial general contractor, recently broke ground on a multi-phase project totaling 605,000 SF of Class-A industrial space on 45-acres, of which is to be completed in June of 2020. Landing 202 project, developed by Scottsdale-based Marwest Enterprises, is located in the heart of the Mesa Gateway area, and opens up opportunities for the municipality and the airport region.
Phase one of this project includes tilt-panel construction of two industrial warehouse buildings, totaling 605,000 SF; building 1A will be 486,000 SF, while building 1B will be 119,000 SF, positioned on a property that is highly visible from the Loop 202, with freeway access from the Power Road and Hawes Road exits. Parking for phase one will offer 565 spaces, exceeding the required amount of 550 per site plan. Designed by national architecture firm, Ware Malcomb, Landing 202 is expected to bring industry to an area that was once farmland.
“This building elevates our market and creates something that hasn’t existed in this area of Mesa to-date, through its scope and types of users that can be accommodated here. Thank you to those who dream big and bring projects like this to our city,” said Mayor John Giles, City of Mesa.
Speaking to a gathering at last week’s groundbreaking ceremony, James Murphy, President and CEO of Willmeng Construction, explained, “The momentum that greater Phoenix has in the industrial market is something to be excited about in 2020. We’ve worked with many development service departments, and the Mesa group is top-notch—we are honored to be part of a high-performing team.
The City of Mesa’s Planning and Zoning Board approved the request to rezone the property from agricultural to light industrial in 2019. Bill Jabjiniak, Economic Development Director, City of Mesa, said, “Thank you for having the vision that provides a product that helps us grow as a city and community. It’s been obviously well worth it in phase one.”
