Foundation Capital Partners and Baker Development Break Ground on Tariff-Friendly Industrial Project in Goodyear, AZ

Anthony Lydon

PHOENIX, AZ – New York-based Foundation Capital Partners (FCP) and Chicago-based Baker Development Corporation (BDC) have broken ground on a two-building, Class A industrial project called VB/143. 

Located in the heart of Goodyear, Arizona, the project sits within a foreign trade zone magnet site, allowing for reduced real and personal property taxes and reduced or eliminated duty, tariff and U.S. customs reporting costs.

The joint venture has named JLL Managing Directors Anthony Lydon and Marc Hertzberg, and Vice President Riley Gilbert, as the project’s exclusive leasing brokers.

“We are excited to have picked the Southwest Valley and Goodyear, in particular, as our foray into the greater Phoenix industrial market,” said Daniel J. Slack, Principal with BDC.

Marc Hertzberg
 “The business-friendly environment propagated by the City of Goodyear and the Greater Phoenix Economic Council, coupled with a continued market momentum characterized by a flight to quality from companies fleeing neighboring states, was hard to ignore.”

“The delivery of VB/143 comes at a time when many companies are reevaluating their business plans to accommodate for unforeseen trade policy shifts,” said Lydon.

 “In this environment, VB/143 provides a modern, interstate-oriented supply chain solution with the protection of a Foreign Trade Zone, which can be a critical benefit for operations that are vulnerable to economic events such as rising regulations or tariffs.”

Riley Gilbert

Located on the southeast and southwest corners of 143rd Avenue at Van Buren Street, VB/143 includes a 213,000-square-foot cross-dock building and a 112,000-square-foot rear loading building.

The project offers divisibility down to 30,000 square feet and includes all of the modern industrial amenities such as 36’ clear height, secured concrete truck courts, insulated dock doors, energy efficient clerestory windows, robust power, trailer drops, public transportation and outdoor employee amenity spaces.

VB/143 sits within Goodyear Gateway South, a Class A masterplanned industrial park, less than one mile to a full interchange at I-10 and Bullard Avenue, just north of Phoenix Goodyear Airport.

Daniel J. Slack

The general contractor for VB/143 is Layton Construction Company. Butler Design Group is the architect. The project is scheduled for completion by fourth quarter 2019.

CBRE Hotels Research Finds U.S. Hotel Performance Decelerates Through 2020, But 2021 Improves

R. Mark Woodworth
ATLANTA, GA -– Shifts in the depth and timing of an expected slowdown in the nation’s economy have impacted CBRE Hotels Research’s outlook for the U.S. lodging industry over the next few years. 

 According to the September 2019 edition of Hotel Horizons®, CBRE’s forecasts for RevPAR changes in 2019 and 2020 have been adjusted slightly downward, but the outlook for 2021 has improved.

“Changes in various components of the U.S. economy and their relationship to U.S. hotel demand fluctuations are well understood," said R. Mark Woodworth, senior managing director, CBRE Hotels Research.

"This is what drives the econometric model that informs our forecasts for U.S. lodging market performance. As a result of the rapidly changing prospects for the nation’s economy, we have adjusted our forecasts of lodging demand and ADR appropriately.”

CBRE projects GDP growth to average 1.9 percent during the second half of 2019.  This is half the pace of growth during the first half of the year.  

Accordingly, CBRE Hotels Research forecasts a deceleration in U.S. lodging performance during the final six months of 2019.  After rising by 2.1 percent during the first half of the year, the pace of demand growth will slow to 1.4 percent for the balance of 2019. 

 As a result, CBRE now forecasts the national occupancy level to decline by 0.2 percent from 2018 to 2019.

“Fortunately, room rates alterations tend to lag occupancy changes.  Therefore, the annual increase in ADR will remain steady at 1.1 percent,” said Woodworth.  For the year, CBRE is now projecting a RevPAR increase of just 0.9 percent, 110 basis points below the forecast the firm published in June of 2019.

The 2019 demand slowdown will show its negative impact on ADR next year.  CBRE’s forecast for ADR growth in 2020 has been lowered to 2.0 percent.  

“Downward pressure on room rates also will come from a rise in new hotel openings,” Woodworth added.  “Our 2020 supply growth forecast now is 2.1 percent, which is greater than the long-run average of 1.8 percent. 

"This will drive a 0.8 percent national occupancy rate decline for the year.”  For 2020, CBRE is forecasting a RevPAR growth rate of 1.2 percent.  This, too, is a downward adjustment from 90 days ago."

JLL arranges $34 million financing for 7EMPIRE in San Jose, CA

7EMPIRE is  a 97-unit, Class A, art-focused multi-housing community in the Silicon Valley core.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – JLL announced  it has arranged $34 million in debt financing for the development of 7EMPIRE, a 97-unit, Class A, art-focused multi-housing community in the Silicon Valley core.

Derek Allen
JLL worked on behalf of the developer, TriForge Capital Partners, to secure the 13-year, fixed-rate construction-to-permanent loan with Guardian Life Insurance Company of America. 

TriForge Capital Partners is led by development groups LandForge and developURBAN. The JLL Capital Markets team previously coordinated venture equity on behalf of the developer.

“The TriForge team appreciates the contributed value and insightful perspective provided by JLL,” echoed Derek Allen of LandForge and Neal Yung of developURBAN. “As a trusted partner, they’ve helped us kick off a meaningful and sustainable development, which integrates local community spirit into a boutique-sized, design-forward offering.”

Collin Eckles
“We set out to develop a community that fuses the way discerning residents want to live within spaces that world-class artists want to create,” added partner Collin Eckles, former president of Rose Rock Group, a Rockefeller company. 

“This effort will forge an inspiring exposé of youthful vigor and some of the best street art the world has ever seen, on par even with the Wynwood Walls murals of Miami, all within the aesthetic of Jtown.”

LandForge partner JIG Holding acknowledges the transaction as a good cultural fit for them as well, noting that, “Along with strong submarket fundamentals and a competent development team, it was the right time to enter the U.S. market after being active on multiple continents for the past 70 years.”

The JLL debt placement team representing the developer was led by Senior Director Chris Gandy.

Chris Gandy
7EMPIRE is currently under construction at 525 North 7th Street on the only remaining infill site in San Jose’s burgeoning Japantown neighborhood. 

The Japantown location provides direct connections to VTA light rail, bus and bike-share transit modes linked to nearby Silicon Valley employment centers.  

The 7EMPIRE site notably has immediate access to Jackson Street shops, grocers and restaurants as well as local artists, vendors and design studios, which comprise the Jtown Art Walk.

Due for completion in 2021, the USGBC LEED-designed property will encompass a mix of modish, forward-thinking residential dwellings; a 5,000-square-foot publicly accessible sculpture and street art park; 

Also: approximately 1,000 square feet of entry plaza retail and 131 parking spaces. An artist-in-residence program is currently planned, and the integral art park has been designed alongside the famed Empire Seven Studios to include community engagement activities.
