CCBG Named One of the Top 10 Coolest Offices
Located in the center of burgeoning Downtown Phoenix Warehouse District, this modern building pays homage to the historic area. The team at CCBG designed the space themselves, with open windows offering fantastic Phoenix views and an industrial yet friendly feel unlike any other space.
Warehouse District gets new life as a home for tech companies and start-ups. More than 100 years ago, Phoenix Warehouse District was a bustling area where trains would crisscross across the streets, bringing wholesale goods and produce in and out of the region. Then the urban flight of the 1950s and 1960s swept the nation, Phoenix wound up with a severely empty warehouse district.
For many building owners in the area, it became cheaper to own dirt than an empty warehouse, so many of the brick-walled sentinels of the past were torn down and replace with dirt or parking lots.
Fast forward to the 21st Century and the district’s remaining dormant buildings have been undergoing a rejuvenation, with redevelopment revitalizing an area that had been left by the wayside.
