PHOENIX-Hoyt Trust closed an all-cash deal for $4.3 million for a 20-acre tract that it’s been eyeing for some time near the Sky Harbor International Airport. The acreage is situated along 40th Street, just south of Roeser Road.

Ryan bought the parcel about a year ago, says Kling. Then, the well-known developer set about getting it rezoned for flex projects.

Hoyt owns about two million sf of industrial property, equally split between Phoenix and California. Kling says Hoyt satisfied a 1031 Exchange from the sale of a California property by acquiring the Phoenix land. Hoyt’s plan is to sit tight for awhile and then build out the tract with traditional office/warehouse, using a design with a 20% to 80% ratio.
