The Phoenix/Mesa Gateway Airport is the heart of the growing southeast valley. Another 38 acres of land in Mesa was purchased by developer Logistics Property Co. for $20.1 million.

In a recent statement regarding the 67 acres just sold off Ellsworth and Pecos roads, the City of Mesa’s Economic Development Director, Bill Jabjiniak stated, “Mesa’s Gateway area is booming with the arrival of new advanced manufacturing companies in the aerospace, electric vehicles, semiconductor, medical device, and other important technology sectors.”

Mojahed and Dulle represented the seller, Pecos 205, LLC. The land went to market back in December 2021 and opened escrow in February 2022. “Lindsey and I are happy for the sellers and grateful for the opportunity,” said Mojahed. This location backs up to the Mesa Gateway airport, which is also surrounded by an economically driven growth area. The immediate area includes top employers such as Gulfstream, Amazon, MarWest Commercial, Facebook, Legacy Sports Complex, Arizona State University Polytechnic Campus, and the upcoming Skybridge Arizona Development which is projected to bring in over 17,000 direct and indirect jobs. Mojahed continued to state, “This trade area has experienced tremendous growth and we are happy to be a part of it.”

“This new development is a nice fit for the Pecos Advanced Manufacturing Zone just south of the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport,” Mesa Economic Development Director Bill Jabjiniak said. “We are seeing tremendous activity in an area of the city that continues to attract manufacturers in industries such as aerospace and aviation, electric vehicles, semiconductors, and many other high-tech sectors.” The buyer, Logistics Property Co., was represented by Paul Sieckowski with Colliers.

SVN advisor Mojahed stated, “I grew up in the east valley, so I love working in this area.” This is such a hot market. More and more developers and investors are seeing the considerable opportunity to invest and take advantage of capital gain and opportunity zone incentives.” Mojahed also represented the seller in the recent sale to Cobblestone, which already has 36 locations in the State of Arizona. This new site will be coming soon nearby off Ellsworth and Pecos roads.

67 acres of land in Mesa sells for $13.9M

The southeast valley is becoming one of the most acquired areas for investors and developers to build more commercial properties. More than half a million people live in the City of Mesa, and it is the third largest city in the State of Arizona. It is no surprise that the city continues to grow, and the East Valley is still booming.

Economic development in the City of Mesa is a priority for city officials. Healthcare, Education, Aerospace/Aviation and Defense, Tourism and Technology are just some of the industries that make up the southeast valley.

Next year, we will also see the new micro mill that represents a net investment of $300 million dollars. The Texas-based steel and metal manufacturer, CMC Steel has been operating in Mesa since 2009 but expanded its footprint and will be adding another 185 additional jobs upon completion in early 2023. In early March of this year, Fujifilm Electronic Materials, U.S.A, Inc. also announced they just completed their $88 million dollar expansion development, which included the additional 88,000 square feet to the existing facility. By the end of 2024, the company also plans to add 120 new positions in chemistry, engineering, manufacturing, warehousing and maintenance.

More industrial developments are increasing because of the need for these larger manufacturing developments including the Park Ellsworth Industrial complex that will be built on the approximate ±61 acres of land that was just acquired. The seller, NEC E&G LLC and Ellsworth 92, LLC sold to SCD Ellsworth, LLC represented by CBRE, who will also be handling the leasing on the industrial complex located off Ellsworth and Pecos Roads.

SVN advisor Mojahed stated, “The Phoenix/Mesa Gateway airport continues to drive businesses to this booming area.” The parties opened escrow back in June of 2021 and there were some setbacks along the way however Mojahed continued to state, “We are just excited to see this come together for everyone involved and look forward to seeing this amazing new development over the next couple of years.” The Kison team at CBRE represented the buyer and will continue to represent the new owners to handle the pre-leasing for their tenants. Other major developments within the same area include Queen Creek Station just south of Ellsworth, residential development communities such as Terravella, Shea Homes to the south and Eastmark to the north. Not to mention, Bell Bank Park and The Legacy Sports Complex is just north of the land that just sold as well.

With the rising residential and commercial developments in the area, developers continue to seek out the southeast valley opportunities to support the increase in economic growth and development. “Mesa’s Gateway area is booming with the arrival of new advanced manufacturing companies in the aerospace, electric vehicles, semiconductor, medical device, and other important technology sectors,” Mesa Economic Development Director Bill Jabjiniak stated. “To fill this tremendous demand, we are seeing great industrial projects such as Park Ellsworth either in the planning stage or under construction with much of the space being leased even before completion.”

The Seven Chicago Cubs Prospects for the Arizona Fall League Have Been Selected

Each year, after the minor league seasons end, there is a prospect league in Arizona for additional high-end competition and player development. The Arizona Fall League is maybe an opportunity for players to face better hitters/pitchers than they faced during the regular season, or maybe an opportunity to make up for time lost to injury, or maybe a final chance for an organization to evaluate prospects ...

Each year, after the minor league seasons end, there is a prospect league in Arizona for additional high-end competition and player development. The Arizona Fall League is maybe an opportunity for players to face better hitters/pitchers than they faced during the regular season, or maybe an opportunity to make up for time lost to injury, or maybe a final chance for an organization to evaluate prospects ahead of the 40-man rostering decisions in November.

The AFL, which kicks off October 3 and concludes with a championship on November 12, permits organizations to send up to seven prospects to play on combined teams – the Chicago Cubs’ prospects play on the Mesa Solar Sox.

Thanks to Marquee’s Lance Brozdowski, we now know the seven Cubs prospects heading to the AFL:

Going in reverse order there, as Brozdowski notes, we already knew about the three position prospects. Brennen Davis is going to get more reps, since he missed so much of the year with his back procedure. Matt Mervis is going so he can keep working against high-level pitching competition in advance of possibly making the jump to MLB next year.

And Miguel Amaya was to not only make up lost at bats, but he was going to be catching for the first time since his Tommy John surgery last year. To that end, the timing of the ankle injury is extremely unfortunate, and we can only hope it isn’t too severe. If not, then it’s possible we’d still see him play in the AFL, even if maybe not right away. If that timing doesn’t work out, you could see the Cubs seek to send a different position prospect instead, and/or you could see the Cubs try to get Miguel Amaya game action in a professional winter league later on in the Dominican Republic or Venezuela or Puerto Rico. Two years ago, Amaya played in the Puerto Rican Winter League, for what that’s worth. That league kicks off on November 4.

As for the four pitchers going to the AFL, it’s a mix we’ve seen before (legit big league relief prospects), but it’s kinda fascinating because NONE are Rule 5 eligible this year. There is no extra evaluation going on – just pure player development.

Zac Leigh, 24, is one of the biggest breakout relief prospects in the system, having been a 16th round pick just last year, and then exploding almost right away in the Cubs organization as a reliever. He’s pitched at High-A and Double-A this year, posting a combined 2.76 ERA over 32.2 innings, with a 35.5% K rate and 10.9% BB rate. His stuff profiles as big-league-caliber, and clearly the Cubs want to get him more innings in advance of 2023, when he might already be on the radar as an up-down guy.

Riley Martin, 24, helped the South Bend Cubs win their opening playoff game last night, and has been succeeding there for the Cubs most of the season as a multi-inning reliever. The 2021 6th round lefty (senior sign) started out at High-A Myrtle Beach this year, but his results were over-the-top ridiculous. With South Bend, it’s been more of a challenge, though he’s got a 2.55 ERA going back to the start of June (30.7% K rate, 13.2% BB). Last night’s was just his second single-inning appearance of the year, so he’s truly been a multi-inning guy. Already up to 88.2 innings on the year, Martin is kinda getting a minor league starter’s workload without being a starter. Curious what the Cubs have in mind for him long-term, but he feels a little further away than Leigh.

Bailey Horn, 24, was the Cubs’ return in the Ryan Tepera trade in 2021, having been a 5th round pick of the White Sox in 2020. The Cubs almost immediately converted him to relief, and he’s had one of the most extreme years you’ll see: he’ll go three outings of absolute dominance and near perfection, and then he’ll have an outing where he cannot find the strike zone at all. If you talk to folks who just evaluate the pitches, it’s big league stuff. But the control and consistency still have a long way to go, and at 48.0 innings on the year between High-A and Double-A, there’s room for him to do more work down in Arizona and hopefully put himself on the radar as an up-down guy as soon as next year.

Sheldon Reed, 25, has thrown just 38.2 innings this year, mostly at High-A, and the Cubs obviously just want him to get more work in. An undrafted signing out of that abbreviated 2020 draft, Reed showed enough last year as one of those older-but-lower-level pure relief prospects to be on the radar this year, and then he’s showed enough good stuff this year to stay on the radar. His ERA at South Bend is over five, but there were some early blowups when he first arrived. Since the start of July, the ERA is 4.24, with a 32.9% K rate and 11.8% BB rate.

On the whole, these are all older relief-only guys who have been able to succeed at the lower levels, and their selection to the AFL means that the Cubs see enough in the stuff that they can project as possible future big league relievers. That’s no small feat, as we’ve discussed before: the guys who get moved to relief at the lowest levels, especially at older ages, pretty much have to look ridiculous in order to climb the ladder, where they will be competing for roster space with younger starting pitching prospects who finally have to make the transition to the bullpen.

Or at least, that’s generally been the model for where some of your useful young relievers wind up coming from in the big leagues (guys who started up until Double-A/Triple-A, and just couldn’t maintain it enough against better bats to stay in the rotation, like Michael Rucker and Erich Uelmen, for example). But the Cubs seem to be increasingly pushing these relief-only types with noticeable success (Brandon Hughes, Jeremiah Estrada, Ethan Roberts, and Manny Rodriguez were all homegrown relief-only prospects who’ve seen big league time this year). I wonder if there are some new-ish scouting and development dynamics at play that we’ll see more clearly in the years to come.

Mint Cannabis will soon be the first dispensary in Arizona, and one of a handful of dispensaries in the country, to have the ability to offer 24-hour service, 365 days per year to those 21 and older.

“The Mint is well known for innovation and pushing the envelope in the marijuana industry to enhance the customer and patient experience,” said Eivan Shahara, Co-Founder and CEO of Brightroot, Inc., parent company of Mint Cannabis. “Pursuing approvals for operational changes like this one brings the Mint closer to other essential service operators that provide care options, like pharmacies. It allows us to better serve our most in-need individuals during overnight hours, and customers who have different work shifts.”

Around-the-clock operations will officially launch on Thursday, Oct. 13, at the Mint’s Guadalupe dispensary on the southwest corner of S. Priest Drive and W. Baseline Road (5210 S. Priest Drive). The Mint will operate 24-hours a day at this location on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays as a starting point and may expand the extended hours to additional days of the week based on demand.

According to the Mint’s leadership team, when the sun goes down on Oct. 13, so will the prices. On the first day that the Mint will operate with extended hours, customers and patients will find a live deejay, a variety of “Midnight Madness” buy-one-get-one deals, and free prizes and giveaways all night long. Everyone 21 and older who shops at this dispensary location on Oct. 13 will receive 25% off the purchases they make in the entire store. The first 100 people over the age of 21 who shop at this location after 11:59 p.m. on Oct. 13 will receive a medicated goodie bag with product and swag inside, and everyone 21 and older who visits the Guadalupe dispensary between midnight to 8 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 14 will receive a free pre-roll.

Thursday, Oct. 13 also happens to be National M&M Day, so the Mint’s cannabis chefs plan to celebrate all day long and into the weekend by selling infused M&M treats in the Mint Café, the cannabis kitchen located inside the Mint’s flagship dispensary location. They plan to feature everything from cupcakes and cheesecakes to cookies and trail mixes that incorporate the popular chocolate candy.

To ensure the utmost safety of its customers, patients and employees, the Mint already has a very well-lit parking lot at this dispensary location, along with hundreds of security cameras and a team of security guards who work around the clock, 24-7, to ensure safety.

“Not only is the Mint a trailblazer in the cannabis industry, but the entire Mint team operates with a lot of heart – they help people in the community year-round,” said Jeff Kulaga, Guadalupe’s Town Manager. “We’re grateful to have the largest dispensary in the state right here in our backyard, as the tax revenues they generate help our schools, residents, and Town services.”

The 24-hour service that will soon be offered at the Mint’s flagship dispensary is not the only convenience that the innovative operator offers. The Guadalupe dispensary has a drive-thru that gives increased access and more convenience for busy individuals on the go, providing an even speedier option to pick up medicine that may treat illnesses ranging from cancer and epilepsy to Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or Crohn’s diseases. Customers and patients 21 and older can also order items online at mintdeals.com and pick up their orders through the Mint’s drive-thru, curbside, or in the dispensary. Lastly, patients that live within a 25-mile radius of the dispensary can also have their medicine delivered by the Mint to their home.

The Mint’s Guadalupe dispensary is not only the largest in the state, but it is also the third-largest in the nation. In 2018, the popular cannabis operator introduced the nation’s first full-service cannabis kitchen of its kind, which creates a variety of freshly prepared infused foods – from pizza and wings to brownies and wedding cakes – that are consumed off site.

With more than 262 employees at its Guadalupe, Phoenix and Mesa locations, the Mint is poised to open two additional dispensaries in Phoenix within the year, in addition to new cultivation and dispensary locations in Nevada, Missouri, Massachusetts and Illinois.

The Arizona Fire & Medical Authority has provided the following tips on what hazards to watch out for during and after a flood, including fire, electrical and chemical safety:

Generators and alternative heating devices can create fire hazards during flooding if they aren’t used correctly or maintained properly. Pools of water and appliances can become electrically charged and can cause electrical fires.

On electricity, residents in flooded areas should turn off the power to their homes if they can reach the main breaker or fuse box. All wiring in the house may be electrically charged and hazardous. Residents should have a professional technician check their home for damages before turning on the power.

Make sure potentially combustible liquids like paint thinner, lighter fluid or gasoline haven’t spilled within or near your home. Keep combustible liquids away from electrical or alternative heat sources as to not start a fire.

All smoke alarms in the home should be tested monthly and batteries should be replaced yearly. Some smoke alarms are dependent on your home’s electrical service and may go out when power is turned off.

Make sure the fire hydrant near your home is cleared of debris so the fire department can assess it easily in the event of a fire.

Arizona has seen its fair share of severe weather. Here is a compilation of videos from various storms across the Grand Canyon state.
