George Oliver Plans 181,188 SF Office Redevelopment in Phoenix’s Uptown District
PHOENIX — George Oliver has unveiled plans for its redevelopment of CASA, an office building in Phoenix’s Uptown neighborhood.
The company plans to implement a $17 million renovation to re-establish CASA from a 1989-built project, previously known as Catalina Terraces, into a modern Class A office space focused on community, health and wellness. Renovations will keep the 181,188-square-foot building’s Spanish architectural roots, including natural wood elements and smooth stucco finishes, as well as updated modern lobbies, updated restrooms, an exterior facelift and new landscaping.
Tenant amenities will include a tenant lounge and café operated by Kaleidoscope Juice and a training center with the ability to host approximately 60 guests. The property will feature two centralized courtyards with water features and seating, as well as an on-site co-working facility operated by the ownership accommodating users ranging from one to 10 desks.
CASA will also include a wellness center with a yoga room, new fitness center with showers, on-site meditation room, salon with hair stylist and dog park. The ownership also plans to include a two-story dining experience with dedicated food truck parking, climate-controlled space, a shaded outdoor dining area, and outdoor games and lounge space.
Phoenix-based George Oliver purchased the CASA building in late 2018 for $16.8 million. Renovations will begin in April with delivery slated for the third quarter, complete with move-in ready speculative office suites ranging from 2,000 square feet to 8,500 square feet, as well as shell space to accommodate users up to 30,000 square feet.
Arcadia Management will manage the property and staff an on-site concierge. RSG Builders will handle the renovations, while Western Alliance Bank is the project lender.
