DHM Ground

The new structure, owned by Irgens, will feature store stories of 43,873 rentable square feet and ample parking for future medical tenants.

Irgens broke ground Dec. 7 on Desert Harbor Medical Commons, a new medical office building at 9000 W. Thunderbird Road in Peoria. 

The two-story structure will offer future medical tenants 43,873 rentable square feet and ample parking on the 3.12-acre land site that is easily accessible via Thunderbird Road and Desert Harbor Drive. 

Leasing is underway and a grand opening is on track for September.

“Desert Harbor Medical Commons was designed to be a best-in-class facility to meet the needs of today’s medical practitioners who require efficient and well-located office space to serve their patients in one of the fastest-growing submarkets of metro Phoenix,” said Derek Flottum, vice president of development for Irgens. 

“From day one, this development has been a team effort, and we appreciate the support we have received from the city and all of our project partners.”

Those partners include Upward Architects (project architect), RSG Builders (construction manager), IMEG Corp. (engineering consultant) and Cushman & Wakefield (leasing agent).

The high-tech health care facility was lauded by Mayor Cathy Carlat.

“Peoria is a rapidly growing city, and it’s imperative that our residents have access to a wide range of superior medical services close to home,” Carlat said. 

“Making it easy to obtain quality care empowers people to take responsibility for their own health, and I’m grateful for the impact this building will have on the well-being of many generations — in Peoria and the surrounding area.  

Located at the northeast corner of 91st Avenue and Thunderbird Road, this build-to-suit, two-story is minutes away from the P83 Entertainment District, three hospitals and Arrowhead Town Center. 

Desert Harbor Medical Commons will be the latest addition in a growing network of exceptional health care services in Peoria.

The project included recruitment and engagement of Peoria’s Economic Development Department, as well as the traffic and engineering departments.
