Hangers-300x300Anticipates strong demand for Gateway building

The Phoenix office of JLL has closed the $7 million sale of The Hangars at 5615, a major, state-of-the-art office and hangar facility with direct runway access to Phoenix Mesa-Gateway Airport, the hub of Phoenix’s up-and-coming aerospace corridor.

Although the property is currently 100 percent vacant, it is being acquired by an investor with an expected commitment for approximately half of the space.

“At 73,826 square feet, this is one of the largest hangar facilities on the West Coast,” said JLL Managing Director Bill Honsaker. “The Hangars’ new owners have had strong tenant interest from the very beginning of this process, and we expect that interest to continue as they lease out the building.

Honsaker, along with JLL colleagues Steve Larsen, Riley Gilbert, Tom Turley and Jordan Kissel, represented the property seller in the transaction. CRESA represented the property buyer, Southwest Jet Center.… Read More
