Infill Industrial Breaks Ground in Tempe

by Mike Hunter 

An infill, redevelopment project that will revitalize the 17.97-acre parcel that was the former global headquarters for Insight Enterprises, Sight Logistics Park broke ground last month along the high-visibility I-10 corridor in Tempe.

Calling it a phenomenal addition to the ViaWest Portfolio and observing, “It’s not often you get to transform a site of a Fortune 500 office building into a state-of-the-art industrial complex,” Danny Swancey, partner of ViaWest Group, describes the project as designed to accommodate a variety of sizes and uses catering to a diverse group, including manufacturers, distributors, and all types of general industrial users. 

Sight Logistics Park is made up of two modern industrial buildings totaling 356,904 square feet, Building 1 at 155,717 square feet and Building 2 at 201,187 square feet. These Class A buildings both feature 32-foot clear heights, with 33 dock-high doors and four drive-in doors. 

Sight Logistics Park was designed by McCall & Associates Architects and the general contractor on the project is Willmeng Construction. Once work on the buildings begins, the estimated completion time is just nine months. Demolition of the former Insight headquarters began in July and the project is scheduled to finish in July of 2023. Colliers International in Arizona is handling the leasing for Sight Logistics Park, with the team of Rob Martensen, Phil Breidenbach and Sam Jones leading those efforts. 

Sight Logistics Park is the second industrial development that ViaWest is delivering along the I-10 corridor. Just over three miles south on I-10, ViaWest and Willmeng Construction are nearing completion on Converge Logistics Center, a three-building infill project on the west side of the I-10 between Ray Road and Chandler Blvd.
