Derek Schiller
ATLANTA –– At a celebration at Turner Field, Mizuno and the Atlanta Braves announced a long-term partnership that will include the opening of a one-of-a-kind Mizuno Experience Center in The Battery Atlanta.

The agreement makes Mizuno the Official Baseball Gear Partner of the Atlanta Braves, reaching beyond on-the-field engagement opportunities with the team and spreading into fan activities and community investments throughout Atlanta and the Southeast.

As the Official Baseball Gear Partner of the Atlanta Braves, Mizuno also will be pioneering multiple first-of-its-kind baseball glove kiosks inside SunTrust Park where fans can check out Mizuno baseball gloves to catch foul balls during the game. Fans will be able to return the gloves at no cost or purchase them at the end of the game.

“Mizuno has long been the model for innovation and excellence, both in its approach to its craft and in equipment the company produces,” said Derek Schiller, Atlanta Braves president, business. “As we prepare to open a new chapter at SunTrust Park and The Battery Atlanta, we were looking to build and grow partnerships with companies that shared our vision and values. 

"Mizuno’s commitment to success matches our own, and we’re excited for how this partnership will enhance the fan experience beginning in 2017.”

JLL: New Construction Driving Phoenix Industrial Rents; Leases at Airport I-10 and Park Lucero illustrate local trend

Park Lucero Industrial Complex, Phoenix, AZ

 PHOENIX, AZ, Sept. 23, 2016 – The delivery of more than 2.8 million square feet of new industrial construction in Phoenix during the first half of 2016 has made an impact on the Valley, says the Phoenix office of JLL – in some cases pushing industrial rental rates by as much as 36 percent higher than their existing average.
