After an all-too-familiar pandemic delay, Phoenix-based property management leader Arcadia Management Group has relocated and expanded its downtown Phoenix headquarters within the same building, where it also serves as property manager — the 3550 N. Central office tower. The new 18,500-square-foot space welcomes employees back with amenities for work and play, including a unique attraction for a fourth-floor office tenant: a bowling alley.
Among its features is a human-centric lighting system that mimics the progression of daylight. Starting with soft tones in the morning and gradually increasing in brightness and color temperature throughout the day, this system avoids the fatigue associated with static lighting systems found in “ordinary” offices.
“Our greatest feat, though, is the bowling alley,” says Mark Zimmerman, Arcadia Management Group’s national director of construction management. “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. 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.”
Since its founding in Phoenix in 1986, AMG has become a national entity managing more than 60 million square feet of U.S. office, industrial and retail space, and providing tenant and capital improvements through its in-house construction management division. This division directed the company’s new headquarters. It was also responsible for the 2020 transformation of a portion of unused roof and indoor office space at the tower, transforming these areas into a fifth-story outdoor patio and luxury indoor hospitality suite for building employees.
The 3550 building has space available for lease ranging from 2,000 to 12,225 square feet and offering stunning views. Leasing brokers are Scott Boardman and Dave Carder of Cushman & Wakefield.
