US Capital Development

Representatives from US Capital Development, Willmeng Construction, the city of Glendale and Gray Design take part in the groundbreaking ceremony for the new Falcon Park 303 Phase I in Glendale. 

St. Louis-based US Capital Development recently broke ground on its first development in Arizona. 

Falcon Park 303 Phase I will be a 599,468-square-foot speculative industrial product located along the Loop 303 corridor in Glendale.

US Capital Development managing partner and CEO Scott Sachtleben noted during the groundbreaking ceremony that the firm has grown rapidly in its last four years, quadrupling in staff size and developing nearly $2 billion of product.

“Within the next 12 months, we’ll have another $1 billion of vertical development in the queue,” Sachtleben said. “This is our first entry into the Phoenix valley, and we’re excited about the potential that we see here in Glendale. We’re very anxious to get going.”

“I want to thank the team at US Capital Development for their investment and their trust in our partnership,” Glendale Mayor Jerry Weiers added. “We’ve been growing at warp speed, and that has everything to do with our partners and the trust that they place in the city of Glendale. This is just one of several buildings, so we’re not done after today. In fact, we’re just getting started.”

Falcon Park 303 Phase I sits on 36.75 acres along Camelback Road at 152nd Avenue, just over a mile east of the Loop 303. The building will feature 40-foot clear heights, with 92 dock-height loading doors and four drive-in loading doors. The 599,468-square-foot space is divisible by half. The building is expected to be completed by August.

The team working alongside US Capital Development includes general contractor Willmeng Construction, architect Gray Design Group and civil engineering firm Hilgart Wilson. The leasing on the development is being handled by the Cushman & Wakefield team of Andy Markham, Mike Haenel and Phil Haenel.

“Willmeng is grateful to US Capital Development for the opportunity to partner with them on this project,” said Thomas Jarvis, Willmeng Construction vice president and partner. 

“There are multiple opportunities across the Valley that we’re working with them on, and we’re ready to help Scott and his team establish a successful presence here in Arizona.”

US Capital Development is also working on plans for Falcon Park 303 Phase II, which will be a 325,000-square-foot speculative industrial building. Along with Falcon Park 303, Sachtleben said that his firm is in various stages of planning on at three other industrial developments across the Valley. He noted that by the first quarter of 2022, US Capital Development will have 3 million square feet of industrial product coming out of the ground in the Phoenix market.

Nelson Grumney, who heads up development opportunities for US Capital in the Phoenix market, added, “The pandemic fueled surge in e-commerce, increased consumer demand and the reshoring of manufacturing and warehousing has introduced a huge need for additional industrial product nationally. With the large, growing population base in the Valley, pro-business regulatory environment and proximity to multiple markets, we feel that we are well positioned in the Southwest Valley.”
