“We are very excited to have this national credit tenant at the FLITE property,” said Brian Gleason, SIOR, senior vice president of Colliers International in Greater Phoenix. “The landlord had begun extensive renovation of this building, including new loading docks and office space, as we prepared to position the facility for the market. Gorbel was poised to expand its operations in the West and the synergy of company and project worked well for leasing and move-in within a 90-day period of time. The speed of this transaction is quite impressive for a company of this magnitude.”
