No idea U-haul was expanding its HQ, more good stuff for midtown.

CONSTRUCTION | 11 minutes ago | AZRE
U-Haul International is ready to break ground on a multi-million-dollar conference and fitness center, which is set to be the showpiece of its ongoing campus expansion in Midtown Phoenix.

The two-story, state-of-the-art facility will be stationed along Roanoke Avenue between Central Avenue and 3rd Street, just east of the U-Haul corporate towers. It is scheduled for completion by December 2020.

U-Haul has been headquartered at 2727 N. Central Ave. since 1967 and employs more than 4,000 Arizonans.

“This project is an investment in our Team Members, an investment in our future, and an investment in the City of Phoenix,” U-Haul Chairman Joe Shoen stated.

CAREERS: SEARCH U-HAUL JOBS

The convenience of a 54,208-square-foot exercise complex on campus will make it easier for many Team Members to keep their ambitious New Year’s resolutions.

It will house the U-Haul recruiting department; wellness program team; a medical clinic; conference area; professional development rooms; locker rooms on both levels; a full-size basketball court; a two-lane track; cardio and weightlifting equipment; a spin studio; yoga and group fitness rooms; sports leagues; personal training; and functional training.

The groundbreaking ceremony will take place at 11 a.m. Tuesday. U-Haul leadership and Councilwoman Laura Pastor are set to attend.

The Dec. 10 event will coincide with a holiday version of the monthly Midtown Farmers Market hosted by U-Haul, with 20 local vendors serving lunch items and goods. There will be a spirit shop, games, a photo booth and more for Team Members to enjoy before and after the ceremony.

“This is an exciting piece of our expansion – one that directly addresses the needs and initiatives of our team,” added Jessica Lopez, U-Haul Chief of Staff. “The work space is needed to accommodate our growth. The workout component aligns with our Healthier U program, which empowers our Team Members to reach their peak wellness.”

The U-Haul Healthier U program was employed in late 2015 to address Team Member wellness across four scopes: health, mindset, nutrition and fitness. The program has incorporated: gym and personal trainer reimbursements; nicotine cessation assistance; registered dietitian plans; health fairs; farmers markets; healthy meals and vending on campus; an online health portal; U-Haul Active Day for group fitness events; and more.

In September, U-Haul added the “You Matter” program to address the mental health of Team Members and their households.

The U-Haul Conference and Fitness Center is the most ambitious piece to the wellness puzzle thus far, while reaffirming the company’s desire to recruit the best and brightest Arizona professionals to stay in-state.

“This is an attractive benefit to anyone who is career shopping. It will rival or exceed the best facilities that companies can offer their employees in Arizona,” said Latasha Causey, U-Haul Director of Recruiting. “This is like an early Christmas gift. It’s a great time to be part of the U-Haul family.”

Carhuff Cueva Architects, LLC is general contractor for the project. U-Haul is partnering with Premise Health® for its medical clinic.

Ah but this has a rendering and a groundbreaking announcement so at least it gave us some new info unlike my last report.


But if you know about this project what else does the expansion entail?

Just giving you fluff to continue Fawd's joke

But I think that's about it as far as I know. 2 story fitness center with medical clinic and wellness center. Unfortunately, it will only be for U-Haul employees. Too bad it's not an open fitness center for the public. Now that I think about it, I think it was nearly 2 years ago when I mentioned it? I'm surprised it's taken this long to break ground.

Not development per se, but potential development down the road, so posting here. The misconception about not enough parking is complete bunk. There is still too much parking Downtown and any new office building is sure to include more parking with a garage or podium.

Phoenix Wants New Office Buildings Downtown

By Christina Estes
Published: Monday, December 9, 2019 - 5:05am
Updated: Monday, December 9, 2019 - 9:34am


Construction in downtown Phoenix is bringing new apartments and hotels, but there’s a key development area that’s missing.

Downtown needs new office space, according to the city’s Economic Development director. Christine Mackay said in the last five years, the office vacancy rate has fallen from 30% to 10%, or about 1.3 million square feet of space.

“The product that’s left is kind of an older, obsolete product. It’s not a product that companies are looking for today,” she said.

Mackay told the city’s Workforce and Economic Development Subcommittee that her team is working on ways to encourage developers to build new office space. When a company considers downtown and then chooses another location, Mackay said they ask why.

The biggest thing that we found is the fear of lack of available parking, the lack of available floor space, but then the misperception about our workforce and the affordability of being able to be in the market,” she said.

She said her research department has analyzed data that shows a robust workforce, and they’re sharing that information with brokers and others involved in choosing locations.
