Colliers International represents DBM Ventures in purchase of Scottsdale land for a $9 million office development

Local partners plan Perimeter Center building for occupancy in summer 2019

Phoenix, June 26, 2018 – A local partnership known as DBM Ventures purchased 2.79 acres within Perimeter Center, with plans to develop a $9 million office building in the upcoming year.

DBM Ventures, a partnership comprised of David E. Sellers and two other prominent commercial real estate development leaders, purchased the acreage at 8399 E. Hartford Drive in Scottsdale in May. The partners plan to develop a two-story, 32,054-square-foot office building that incorporates modern architectural design on the property. Construction is slated to begin at the end of this year, with occupancy scheduled for summer 2019. 

“The timing is perfect for this project,” said Jim Keeley, SIOR, founding partner of the Scottsdale office of Colliers International in Greater Phoenix. “The site is situated in the heart of one of Arizona’s largest employment centers and is poised for successful development as vacancy tightens during our strong economy. Businesses are eagerly relocating and expanding here in Scottsdale, looking for new, high-quality space.”

Keeley negotiated the land sale transaction and will serve as exclusive the leasing and sales agent for the development project. “During the early design stages, this project is available for build-to-suit customization. Additionally, the building is offered for lease and/or sale,” said Keeley.

LGE Design Build will be handling architectural services, as well as general contracting for the project.

Located within the master-planned Perimeter Center, the property is positioned in the dynamic Scottsdale Airpark submarket. The area contains more than 3,000 businesses, employing more than 57,000 people. Several companies house their headquarters or regional headquarters in the area, including GoDaddy, YAM Worldwide, JDA Software, Carlisle Company, Han Wei Lines, GPS Insight and CVS Caremark.
