TOLLESON, AZ-Prompted by the need to expand, QuietFlex Manufacturing Co. LP has relocated its Southwest distribution facility to 72,597 sf in the Ryan West Building Park. The flexible duct manufacturer signed an eight-year lease, with a $2.3-million payout, for the space.

Patrick J. Feeney Jr., senior vice president for CB Richard Ellis in Phoenix, says QuietFlex’s executives examined 12 properties, all in the far west submarket. Feeney says the winner, a 228,239-sf building on 14 acres at 8313 W. Pierce St., appealed to QuietFlex’s management because it was end-cap space with a parking lot separate from truck traffic.

“This had speculative office space already built out, which facilitated their immediate timeline,” says Feeney, who represents the Malvern, PA-based owner, Liberty Property Trust. He tells GlobeSt.com that the tenant moved in less than a week ago from 25,000 sf at 125 N. 67th Ave. in far west Phoenix.Ryan West’s other advantage is its north-facing doors. “In Phoenix, when you have that, you never get direct sunlight into the building,” Feeney explains.

QuietFlex is the second company to take space in the year-old building, bringing occupancy to 68%. Owens & Minor Inc. signed a 7.5-year, 80,000-sf lease almost one year ago. The center was developed by Ryan Cos. of Minneapolis and bought by Liberty Property while it was still under construction.

Feeney says a little more than 74,000 sf remains available, but he doesn’t expect that it will be vacant for long. “We have a couple of tenants looking at taking approximately 40,000 sf,” he adds. There are no letters of intent quite yet, but “there’s been very strong interest,” he says. “We’re having good luck with this property.”

CBRE senior vice presidents Joseph H. Porter III and Daniel P. Calihan were part of the team that negotiated the deal for Liberty Property. Mark Hertzberg, senior associate with Grubb & Ellis/BRE Commercial LLC in Phoenix, was the tenant representative.
