Investor sees opportunity in long-term Tempe growth

Phoenix, November 16, 2017 – Colliers International in Greater Phoenix sold a 38,400-square-foot industrial building at 1445 S. McClintock Drive in Tempe, Arizona, for $1.8 million. Hearts and Smiles, an Arizona LLC, purchased the building.

Philip Wurth, CCIM, executive vice president with Colliers, represented the seller, Ronald L. Lewis and Lydia C. Lewis, Trustee. Nishel Badiani of Kirans and Associates Realty represented the buyer. 

“The building is a unique asset because of the stable investment income and re-development opportunities later down the line,” said Wurth. “The owner sees value in investing in the long-term future of Tempe and redevelopment opportunities along Apache Boulevard and the light rail corridor.”

The building, which was constructed in 1969, is fully occupied by All Book Covers. The company has been a tenant at the building for more than 25 years. All Book Covers is an industry leader in hospitality and awards recognition, including custom designed and made case and leather products. 

The property is located close to the Loop 101, Arizona State University and Sky Harbor International Airport. The METRO light rail system and station are accessible on Apache Boulevard, just minutes from the building.
