Renovation Work Well Underway at Phoenix Office High-Rise


ScanlanKemperBard (SKB) and capital partner Black Salmon have started work on the final phase of renovations at 101 North, the second-tallest high-rise in downtown Phoenix. The upgrades, which encompass all of the building’s ground-floor indoor and outdoor spaces, complete a multi-year transformation of the trophy asset into a boutique environment unique to the central business district.

“Our renovation approach at 101 North was a little different... We started at the top of the building and have worked our way down to the ground floor,” said SKB General Manager Charles Ferguson. “This final phase of renovations is a tremendous opportunity – at a critical stage in our history – to not only create a dramatic ground-floor environment but to also integrate the health-focused advantages that tenants will expect from a high-rise office building moving forward.”

Located at the southeast corner of 1st Ave and Monroe St, at 101 N. First Ave, the 101 North building totals 373k sf across 31 floors. It sits in the heart of downtown’s Copper Square, adjacent to the Metro Light Rail line and with a 96 walkability score thanks to nearby destinations ranging from Chase Field and Talking Stick Resort to the Phoenix Convention Center, Symphony Hall and a host of other restaurant, retail, entertainment and cultural offerings. The building is minutes from Sky Harbor International Airport.

Designed by architect Nelsen Partners and directed by Phoenix-based Stevens-Leinweber Construction, ground-floor renovations at 101 North will include new entrances, a new main lobby and upgraded common areas connecting to the building’s on-site restaurant amenities.

The building’s north, east and west exteriors will be transformed with sleek composite panels, and a grand west entrance will be established featuring two large, 14-foot columns clad with Kebony wood slat panels. The lobby will receive new stone wall paneling, wood-slat soffits and feature walls, raw steel panels and portals, new flooring, and a new lighting package.

Restrooms will be upgraded to fully touchless and state-of-the-art air sanitizing systems will be installed in all building elevator cabs. Along with increased cleaning protocols, these features will further enhance the health of the building in a COVID-era environment.

New signage and streetscapes will complete the renovations, along with all back-of-house operations, incorporating a new cooling tower, fire panel systems and controllers. These improvements add to 101 North’s existing building amenities, including conference facilities, fitness center, salon suites, Monroe Bar and Bites at 101 featuring restaurant tenants Bosa Doughnuts, Bunz, Café Cordoba, Meak, Mole, Spoonz and The Monroe. Office space at the project offers sweeping views of the city and surrounding mountains, and is serviced by a six-level covered parking garage.

Current tenants at 101 North include Valley Metro, the Phoenix Business Journal and WeWork. John Bonnell, Brett Abramson, Chris Latvaaho and Chris Beall with JLL are handling leasing for the building and are actively leasing the remaining available space, including full-floor opportunities of up to 35k sf, and move-in ready speculative suites ranging from 1.8k sf to 5.5k sf.

Renovation activity at 101 North is now underway, with a phased completion anticipated between late 2020 and early 2021.
