by Katie Sloan

MESA, ARIZ. — Thompson Thrift has broken ground on Elliot Tech Center, a 1 million-square-foot industrial and retail campus located at the intersection of Elliot and Signal Butte roads within Mesa’s Elliot Road Technology Corridor.

At full build-out, the project will span 75 acres and include eight industrial and retail buildings. The project is located northeast of Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport, north of Apple’s Global Command Center and east of Meta’s Mesa Data Center, which is currently under construction. 

Phase I of the development is scheduled for completion in fall 2023 and will include three industrial buildings ranging from 79,000 square feet to 89,000 square feet and five retail pads. The industrial buildings will feature secure truck courts, a variety of bay sizes and clear heights from 28 feet to 32 feet. 

Black Rock Coffee Bar and an unnamed convenience store are set to open within the retail portion of Phase I, and lease negotiations are currently underway for a 4,000-square-foot, full-service restaurant. 

Ken McQueen and Chris McClurg of Lee & Associates are handling leasing for the industrial portions of the development, and Phoenix Commercial Advisors is marketing the retail component. The design-build team for Phase I of the project includes Butler Design Group and general contractor Clayco. A timeline for the development in full was not announced. 

Indianapolis-based Thompson Thrift is a real estate development, master planning, architecture, engineering and construction firm. The company offers three business verticals: Thompson Thrift Residential, which focuses on multifamily and leased homes; Thompson Thrift Commercial, which focuses on ground-up commercial development; and Thompson Thrift Construction, a full-service construction arm.
