Union Aims for Market-Leading Companies

by Mike Hunter

Union, a Class A office project at the junction of Mesa, Tempe and Scottsdale, is set to break ground on Phase One this month. But the Lincoln Property Company project signed its first tenant three months ago when WageWorks Inc. committed to a 150,000-square-foot lease.

Union’s first Class A office building will total 232,000 square feet with an adjacent 1,120-space, four-level parking garage. It sits at the northeast corner of the property, fronting the Loop 202. Phase One is part of four buildings, each with attached garages, planned for Union. At build out, Union will total up to 1.35 million square feet of Class A office space on 28.2 acres of city-owned land.

Buildings at Union will range from four to eight stories and from 232,000 to 450,000 square feet. Each will feature modern glass exteriors, active first floors and large office floorplates with high ceilings and 10-foot vision glass providing sweeping views of the Superstition Mountains and to Riverview Lake, which is located directly to the south of the property.

Designed to attract and retain market-leading companies and their employees, Union will provide a master-planned campus that creates a strong sense of place. Indoor-outdoor design features will include a lush main pedestrian plaza, shaded gathering areas and outdoor rooms connected together — and to the area’s nearby buildings and uses — by the Rio Salado Pathway.

Union is located on Cubs Way, just off of Dobson Road and Rio Salado Parkway. It fronts the Loop 202, providing direct freeway exposure and monument signage opportunities seen by approximately 160,000 cars per day. The project sits within the heart of Mesa’s Riverview mixed-use district, surrounded by 1.2 million square feet of retail, restaurants and the Sheraton Mesa and Hyatt Place hotels.

DAVIS is the project architect. Layton Construction Company is the general contractor. Ryan Orton and Scott Maxwell from CRESA represented WageWorks in the lease transaction. Lincoln Property Company and Cushman & Wakefield are Union’s exclusive leasing brokers.
