Warner Crossing Attracts Buyers While Tenants Work from Home
Warner Crossing, a two-building office complex located at 8260 and 8312 S. Hardy Dr. in Tempe, has been sold to Tempus Realty Partners of Little Rock, AR. The 138,180-square-foot property attracted buyers while office employees were working from home.
“Warner Crossing represents the ideal opportunity for us to enter the Tempe market” says Dan Andrews, CEO of Tempus Realty Partners. “We are confident that when the current disruption in the market disappates, high quality assets such as this will quickly return to full occupancy.”
“Selling an office property with one of its three tenants on a short-term lease, and most employees working from home takes persistence and a knowledgeable team” says Mindy Korth, executive vice president with Colliers in Arizona. “Fortunately, this project was very well conceptualized by its original developer, Ryan Companies. Warner Crossing has a long history of full-occupancy, only recently dropping to 69% leased status.”
Tempus Realty Partners purchased Warner Crossing from Younan Properties, Inc. of Woodland Hills, CA. Korth represented the seller, and the buyer was represented by Isaac Smith, president of Colliers in Arkansas.
Built in 2000, the single-level office buildings offer an institutional-quality image that attracts sophisticated tenants. The three investment-grade tenants represent resilient business sectors such as banking, pharmacy fufillment and insurance. Highly efficient floorplates make these buildings very versatile for tenants ranging from traditional office to research & development and technology users. Warner Crossing is located in the growing Southeast Valley of Greater Phoenix, which leads the region in attracting research, technology and other knowledge-worker firms through its diverse, well-educated workforce and corporate-friendly business environment.
