New Tempe, AZ Office Development Features Cross Laminated Timber Structural System


Construction has gotten underway on The Beam on Farmer, a Class A office project in the heart of downtown Tempe, AZ. The five-story, 184k sf building is a development of Mortenson, in partnership with PGIM Real Estate and Urban Development Partners.

The Beam on Farmer is the first building in the state to feature exposed Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) construction as the primary structural system. The CLT process utilizes young trees and combines layers of natural timber for an eco-friendly building approach. Cross laminated timber creates zero waste and will capture 3.5 tons of carbon dioxide. Scrap material from CLT production is also used to create other products or biofuel.

Located at 401 S. Farmer Ave, The Beam on Farmer will deliver a unique office product to downtown Tempe, with a modern-meets-vintage mix of solid timber, concrete, steel and glass. Interiors will feature 13’ exposed wood ceilings, 40k sf open floorplates and an Under Floor Air Distribution (UFAD) system providing best-in-class air quality and energy efficiency. The building is served by an adjacent parking garage with a 4/1,000 parking ratio. The Beam on Farmer embodies an active design and will uniquely offer users a healthy building experience, with contactless features from “car to cube.”

The Beam on Farmer offers direct access to the Loop 202 Fwy, is minutes from Sky Harbor International Airport and downtown Phoenix and sits at the hub of the Valley’s vast employment pools. The building has a Walk Score of 78, walkable to the Light Rail and Tempe Streetcar networks, hundreds of downtown Tempe restaurants, retail stores and hotels, and Arizona State University.

Completion of the beam is anticipated in May 2022. The project architect is RSP Architects. JLL was awarded the leasing assignment for the building
