Conor Commercial Real Estate, a member of The McShane Companies, and joint venture partner, Globe Corporation, are pleased to announce the groundbreaking of Canal Crossing Logistics Center, a premier speculative industrial building located on a 10.1-acre land parcel near the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix, Arizona.

Energy efficiency and operational cost savings will also be enhanced by the implementation of fifty (50) 4’ x 8’ skylights placed throughout the warehouse component of the facility.
