Santander At Centrica


Mesa, AZ


Evolution Design


155,000 SF


The Santander at Centrica project involved the transformation of three long-empty big box retail stores into fully leased and vibrant Class A office buildings.

The adaptive re-use project in Mesa’s once struggling Fiesta District features a robust fiber optic infrastructure, making it an ideal headquarters or office space for a high-tech company with a wide footprint. The 117,000 SF project, which is expandable up to 155,000 SF, features 23-foot-high ceilings, wood accents, plenty of natural light, and perfectly suits the needs of the sole tenant, Santander Consumer USA, a full-service, technology-driven consumer finance company focused on vehicle finance.

In order to create a vibrant space, structural openings were added to accommodate new windows. Extensive demolition was required in the interior of the building to bring it back to a gray shell. In order to meet requirements of the new storm water pollution and prevention plans, installation of an underground water retention basin was necessary at the north side of the property. The age and condition of the buildings, along with the addition of exterior canopies, meant that the roof and building structure would need to be reinforced.
