Phoenix offices are gearing up to reopen, and office owners are preparing to safely welcome employees back to the workplace. This includes creating safe and clean spaces—as many owners have already done throughout the pandemic—as well as preparing amenity spaces to safely return to some appearance of normalcy. Arcadia Management Group has been focused on preparing office assets to meet the pandemic’s needs at 3550 N. Central office tower in Phoenix’s Central Corridor.

“Building owners are focused on keeping spaces clean and safe while ramping up the amenities that attract both full- and part-time returning workers. At 3550, we recently constructed a hospitality suite for our tenants with food and drink, games, private conference rooms, and a gorgeous rooftop deck. We have a great Italian restaurant, Alexi’s, on site and Elev8te fitness is downstairs,” Gary Shaw, president of Arcadia Management Group, tells “These common areas offer fun experiences and a sense of community that has been missing for the last year. We are seeing that community slowly start to come back at 3550 and all over Phoenix.”
