827 Grove

68,760 SF | Class A Office Building | Mesa Arizona

Cawley Architects, LGE Design Build, and the RRS Company teamed up to redevelop 827 Grove, an outdated, vacant, two-story office building in Mesa. Our goal was to create a new multi-tenant Class A office building while also increasing the overall parking ratio from the original inadequate 3.2/1,000 SF ratio to the market-driven requirement of 6.0/1,000 SF.

To do that, the developer decided to reduce the original building square footage from 96,000 SF to 68,760 SF by demolishing 28,000 SF of older one-story office space and repurposing that area of the site to parking. It was a bold move but one that resulted in leasing the building to a single tenant within the first year after construction. Other prominent features of the redesign included removing and redesigning the existing two office entrances, and completely reorienting the building’s main entrance to the dramatic entry featured in these photos.
