Ground broken on 2 million-square-foot Gateway Grand industrial park in Mesa
PHOENIX — Ground was broken Tuesday on a 2 million-square-foot industrial park in Mesa.
Gateway Grand will be located in Mesa’s Pecos Advanced Manufacturing Zone at the northeast corner of Sossaman and Pecos roads.
The park, which is being built by developer Greystar, will feature three buildings that will have 40-foot ceilings.
The first building will encompass nearly 1.1 million square feet. The other two buildings will each be about 540,000 square feet.
“Mesa is experiencing substantial economic growth, especially in this area of our city,” Mesa Mayor John Giles said in a press release.
“This industrial park will offer another great option for manufacturing businesses looking to locate in Mesa, with the benefits of solid infrastructure and easy access to the airport, freeways and planned railroad extension.”
The park will be also be adjacent to the Pecos Industrial Rail and train extension from the Union Pacific Railroad, which is expected to provide significant freight access to companies in the area.
Construction on the complex is expected to be completed by May 2023.
