Property management company rolls out new Phoenix HQ with bowling alley
PHOENIX — A Phoenix property management company is welcoming employees back to the office with unique amenities, such as a bowling alley, at its new headquarters.
Arcadia Management Group moved from the fifth floor to the fourth of an office tower near Osborn Road and Central Avenue in Phoenix, giving the company 18,500 square feet of space to work with.
“It took us longer than expected to debut our new headquarters, but we were happy that we’re here now,” Arcadia Management Group President Gary Shaw said in a press release.
“We have exceptional employees who work exceptionally hard, and we have new employees joining the firm each month. This office allows us to accommodate for that growth, making it easier for employees to collaborate and giving them a fun environment in which to celebrate their accomplishments.
“And nothing says celebrate like a bowling alley!”
The company – which manages more than 60 million square feet of office, industrial and retail space in the U.S. – directed the building of the new headquarters with its in-house construction and management division.
Among the unique offerings of the new space are a white noise sound masking system, a maternity room, a full-service kitchen, dining and break area as well as a human-centric lighting system that mimics the progression of daylight to avoid fatigue associated with static lights.
The true spectacle of the new digs, the company said, is the bowling alley.
“We used carefully selected materials and worked with acoustics specialists to ensure that this amenity had zero sound implications for the tenants above or below us,” Mark Zimmerman, Arcadia Management Group’s national director of construction management, said in the release.
“Being able to problem solve to make the bowling alley vision a reality was a high point for our construction team, and reflects the commitment we make to all of our Arcadia projects.”
Arcadia Management Group serves as property manager of the office tower and in 2020 converted a portion of unused roof and office space at the location into an outdoor patio and luxury hospitality suite for employees in the building, the company said.
