A developer has proposed an industrial park called the Metro East Valley Commerce Center to be built on the southwest corner of U.S. 60 and Horne Street in Mesa.
The developer, Metro Commercial Properties of Tempe, envisions four spec buildings totaling 345KSF on 21.5 acres of vacant land.
The owner is Puppyfeathers LP of Mesa, of which the general partner is Charbar Corporation of Mesa. The president and CEO of Charbar is Craig M. Berge.
The parcel initially had been earmarked for auto dealerships years ago, but that use never materialized, so the developer has proposed four buildings with a maximum height of 56 feet. Consideration of the change in use for the Planned Area Development has not been scheduled at Mesa City Council.
The buildings are oriented to Auto Center Drive on the south and the U.S. 60 on the north, with access from Horne Street on the east and Auto Center Drive.
