Newmark Grubb Knight Frank (NGKF) announced that the American Red Cross (ARC) Phoenix Chapter signed a new lease for 13,303 square feet at 4747 North 22nd Street. Located in the Camelback Corridor at the Anchor Center complex, the ground floor is at the doorstep of a great amenity-rich location, intended to promote volunteer appeal. NGKF’s Geoffrey Waldrom and Dan Dobric represented the American Red Cross Phoenix Chapter in the lease transaction.
“The American Red Cross has held a pivotal role in the Phoenix community and the region for nearly a century,” noted Regional CEO David Emerson. “We serve a population of 5.1 million and our headquarters is more than a work space. It is people serving people.”
Serving all of Arizona, New Mexico and some Texas counties, the American Red Cross headquarters facility hosts all regional operations, including thousands of volunteer hours to offer on-site CPR and first aid classes, bi-monthly blood drives, child care services and more. Additionally, ARC manages disaster preparation, with response and recovery being a critical component of its services.
“The Phoenix Chapter’s location had not changed in the last 30 years,” added Waldrom, managing director at NGKF. “Celebrating its centennial anniversary next year and looking to increase its brand and visibility, ARC required an updated and vibrant location near a larger population with more amenities. The new space offers a convenient loading space, ideal for packing emergency aid inventory, updated retail space and most importantly, a central location that is convenient to employees, volunteers and donors.”
The headquarters location is officially open for business, providing a space that will foster expanded community outreach.
