Although a slice of the project is already under construction, representatives from the town of Gilbert, Nationwide Realty and others broke ground on what will become the town’s most sizable business plaza.
The officials unearthed dirt for the incoming Rivulon project during a ceremony in Gilbert on Nov. 12. The ceremonial shoveling came as the symbolic first step toward the completion of the 250-acre development located off of Gilbert Road by the Loop 202 Santan Freeway.
“You’re looking at a $75 million investment that will be made now through the end of 2015,” said Nationwide Realty Investors president Brian Ellis.
Along with the monetary investment that includes $10 million for infrastructure completion, Ellis, whose company is based out of Columbus, Ohio, said the development should bring upward of 15,000 jobs to the area as well.
Construction is already well underway for one of the pieces of the complex — an LA Fitness branch set to open in March 2015. What the ceremony marked though was the start of one of the major components to the project; the building that will house the new international headquarters of Isagenix International, LLC. Isagenix, which was based in Chandler, sells health products tied to skin care, diet and other health products.
