“Phoenix continues to rank at the top of the nation for economic and population growth,” said LPC Desert West Senior Executive Vice President David Krumwiede. “That requires buildings that are efficient, comfortable and expertly designed and amenitized to attract and retain the best talent. We are grateful to be in a position to build and manage these types of transformative buildings, and extend tremendous thanks to our employees, project partners and NAIOP for playing such a substantial role in our success.”
