A 240-acre site on the west side of the Loop 202 South Mountain freeway extension is being primed for a large-scale industrial development, which the development team said will further the city of Phoenix’s goals to have a technology corridor along the region’s newest freeway.

“The introduction of the 202 has really changed the area,” said Adam Baugh, partner at Withey Morris and zoning attorney for the project, called the Dobbins Industrial and Tech Park. “This is bringing employment and nonresidential development to that area.”

Baugh’s client, Indiana-based Scannell Properties LLC, is seeking to have a mix of uses on the property, which is located west of Loop 202 and is bisected by Dobbins Road. Uses planned for the area include light industrial, office, technology, manufacturing, and other employment uses, according to city of Phoenix documents.
