Mesa industrial project offers 2 million feet near airport, railroad line

Work is underway on a large industrial park in southeast Mesa called Gateway Grand.

Greystar Development recently broke ground on the 150-acre site, south of Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport and next to a planned extension by Union Pacific Railroad. 

The project  will feature three buildings offering more than two million square feet. Gateway Grand is in Mesa’s foreign trade zone which means qualified companies operating there can take advantage of reduced or deferred tariffs and duties and reduced property taxes.

“Mesa is experiencing substantial economic growth, especially in this area of our city,” Mayor John Giles said in a statement.

“Greystar Logistics is pleased to break ground on our first Class-A industrial project in Arizona,” said Billy Cundiff, Greystar managing director. “The immediate access to intermodal transportation, an educated workforce, and high population growth has created the ideal ecosystem for advanced manufacturing and logistics companies expanding their operations.”

The project should be finished by May.
