Additionally, District Medical Group renewed their 56,000-square-foot lease in the Burgbacher building for 10 years.  DMG Children’s Rehabilitative Services is the largest multi-specialty interdisciplinary clinic in the state of Arizona with over 25 medical specialties and is designed to meet the unique healthcare requirements of special-needs children.  DMG provides direct care to the community with over 66,000 visits annually.  Bo Sederstrom represented DMG in the transaction.

And, Firestone Tire Center has renewed its lease on its building at the northwest corner of the property for another 10 years. A tenant for over 50 years at Park Central, Firestone has been serving the midtown neighborhood at its current location on the property since 1965.

Park Central Improvements and Activity

The Park Central development team also continues its work on making the project more robust, including a new conference center that is being built for use by all Park Central tenants. The new conference center will be located in the Goldwater Building and can accommodate up to 85 people for tenants to utilize.  The conference center will also have a galley and state of the art A/V equipment.

“We are pleased to see the continued interest in Park Central especially considering the current economic conditions,” he said. “It is a sign that the project remains truly desirable thanks to its innovative and welcoming design, exceptional location and strong surrounding support industries.”

Sharon Harper, Chairman and CEO of Plaza Companies, said the leasing momentum is an indicator of Park Central’s role in keeping Phoenix’s economy strong.
