Craig Krumwiede, President of Harvard Investments, joined development partner Lincoln Property Company (LPC), dignitaries from the City of Mesa and other business and community leaders to celebrate the groundbreaking of the first office building at Union. At buildout, this project will total four buildings and 1.35 million square feet of Class A office space at the confluence of thriving Mesa, Tempe and Scottsdale, Ariz.
Union is one of the region’s most exciting new developments connecting Arizona’s top municipalities in a development that provides business professionals access to premium nearby shopping, restaurants and entertainment. The Valley’s most attended spring training team – the Chicago Cubs – is at neighboring Sloan Park.
Union’s first building at the northeast corner of the site will connect to the larger Union master plan via a lush, pedestrian plaza and indoor-outdoor features such as shaded gathering areas and outdoor meeting spaces. These are all linked by the bordering Rio Salado Pathway – a popular water-front route for runners, bikers and kayakers.
City of Mesa Mayor John Giles said, “With Harvard Investments’ solid track record of building excellent Class A office space, I look forward to watching Union evolve as an employment hub for the Riverview District, already an epicenter of shopping, food, entertainment and jobs with easy freeway access.”
Lincoln Property Company will also serve as the project’s leasing agent and property manager. Completion of building one at Union is scheduled for October 2020.
