PV 303 – Spec Industrial Project of the Year
Strategically located on the Loop 303 freeway, north of I-10, PV 303 is a 1,600-plus-acre, master-planned business park located in Goodyear, Arizona. PV 303 Building A is a 618,350 SF cross-dock warehouse with 36-foot clear height on 38.79 acres. The building was fully leased to UPS in May of 2017 and serves as a new package processing hub for their e-commerce division.
The phased hub construction modifies a 618,350-square-foot structure on 140 acres in the PV 303 Development. During the past holiday season, the facility provided additional processing and efficient automated sorting capacity for lightweight small packages typical of e-commerce that were moving throughout Arizona and the Southwest.
With its planned completion of phase two in late 2019, the new facility will showcase more than 970,000 square feet of advanced operational technologies and sortation equipment under one roof and bring more than 1,500 jobs to the Goodyear area.
Phase one includes Building A, a parking lot to the west for 275 cars, truck parking to the north and south, a fire lane to the east and a private drive to the south. The site will accommodate future parking for an additional 264 cars. Parking stalls for 129 trailers are also provided. Truck areas are screened by an eight-foot-high articulated masonry wall with provisions for future gates. Berms, entries and landscaping are located along Sells Street and Sarival Road to provide a visual softening to the site.
PV 303 embraces its Loop 303 freeway exposure by creating an identity element on the northwest corner of the building to attract a full-building tenant. Design elements are bold in mass, color and pattern to address the view of the building at freeway speeds.
Dock doors on the north and south sides of the building take advantage of favorable solar exposure. Warehouse skylights filter natural light into the facility to minimize the number of lights used, reducing energy cost and usage.
