Tesla facility sold in Scottsdale Airpark


Cushman & Wakefield announced Sunrise Investment 8300 LLC has purchased 8300 E. Raintree Drive in Scottsdale for $13.95 million.

Palo Alto based Tesla occupies the entire facility on a long-term net lease, according to a press release.

Michael Kitlica, national NNN leased asset specialist Chuck Klein, Eric Wichterman and Michael Coover of Cushman & Wakefield negotiated the sale transaction on behalf of the seller.

8300 E. Raintree Drive is a 41,000-square-foot, free-standing service and delivery facility in the Scottsdale Airpark. With frontage and signage along Raintree Drive, this represents a large Tesla location in Arizona. The property sits near mixed-use developments, which lies one mile east of Scottsdale Quarter and Kierland Commons and adjacent to the Raintree and the Loop 101 interchange.

“Tesla selected this facility for its unique zoning, recognizable address and irreplaceable location to service the greater Scottsdale/Phoenix area,” Mr. Kitlica said in a prepared statement.

“This facility represents the largest investment Tesla has ever made in the state of Arizona and we are excited to see their finished product come to life.”

The landlord and Tesla substantially upgraded the property for vehicle repair, vehicle storage and new vehicle pickups by customers throughout the state, a release states.

“This was a very complex and unique transaction which involved re-purposing a two-story office building for a re-adaptive single-story automotive repair use for electric vehicles,” Mr. Kitlica said.

“Mayor Jim Lane and his team within the City of Scottsdale were especially vital in seeing this redevelopment through and we are thankful for their involvement.”
