CHANDLER ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT UPDATE : JANUARY 31, 2018
Class A Office Building Breaks Ground at Chandler Freeway Crossing Business Park











Developer Mark IV Capital has broken ground on 2625 at Chandler Freeway Crossing , a 153,370-square-foot, Class A office building within the company's 40-acre Chandler Freeway Crossing business park. The 2625 building joins three existing buildings at the park, which are fully leased to major corporate tenants.

"We are thrilled to celebrate another groundbreaking at Chandler Freeway Crossing and thank Mark IV Capital for their continued investment," said Chandler Mayor Jay Tibshraeny. "Our private partners look at our fiscal stability, robust infrastructure and talented labor force, and know that the fundamentals of Chandler's economy are strong. We appreciate their trust in Chandler and we are committed to pursuing sound policy to support their investments."

Located  on the Price Road Corridor  at the northeast corner of the Loop 101/Loop 202 interchange , the three-story building offers 50,790-square-foot floor plates, 14-foot ceilings, a collaborative roof deck for private tenant use, a 6.5/1000 parking ratio and freeway visibility that includes building signage opportunities and a 60-foot tall, freeway-facing monument sign.

Businesses of any size in any sector are encouraged to join the Sun Corridor Economic Development for the Global Economy (EDGE) Program.

The EDGE Program includes three elements: (1) a recognition program to celebrate companies that are succeeding in global markets, (2) a quick survey on barriers faced in exporting, and (3) connections to resources for exporters. 

Applications for the EDGE Program may be submitted until Feb. 28. The EDGE event will be held on Apr. 26 to celebrate the achievement of all companies, including the top scoring companies in the Sun Corridor region.
