PHOENIX, AZ. – Crown West Realty inked a fifteen-year, absolute net lease with K-12 public charter school management companies Choice Education and Development and EdKey, Inc., to occupy a single-tenant 26,000 square foot building in Arizona Business Park, located at 16454 North 28th Avenue in Phoenix. Choice and Edkey operate together as Sequoia Schools, and have 13 locations throughout the Valley. Sequoia’s Redwood school, currently located in Peoria, will be relocated to the building to become part of a campus with Arizona Academy for Arts and Academics, directly across the street.

“Crown West Realty acquired the property in a joint venture with Travelers as part of a ten building portfolio in 2004,” said Bob Olshan, Vice President for Crown West Realty. “The location and configuration worked perfectly for Sequoia’s desires to create a campus setting and serve a broader range of grade levels.”

Todd Noel of Colliers International represented Sequoia Schools. Charles Miscio and Greg McMillan of Colliers International represented Crown West Realty.
