Alliance Bank Helps George Oliver Bring Visionary Redevelopments to Life
George Oliver is known for excellence in redeveloping aging properties into first-rate, highly desirable commercial real estate assets. A critical component of success for the Phoenix-based company is collaborating with great partners to bring visionary redevelopment projects to life.
Curt Kremer, Managing Partner of George Oliver, prides himself on putting together power players that will work together to create some of the most in-demand properties in greater Phoenix. In 2013, he was looking to work with a debt partner that understood repositioning and adaptive reuse of real estate. Alliance Bank of Arizona checked all the boxes for the forward-looking redeveloper.
“When we approach a new project, we approach it with the ’George Oliver Way,’ which commits to deliver best-in-class service and products. We find partners that not only believe but deliver the same high standards,” said Kremer. “Alliance Bank of Arizona is one of those companies. It’s a partnership, not just a lender relationship.”
Kremer and his team are on the forefront of evolving office space to become functional experiential workplaces with a purpose beyond 9-5. These creative ideas often require custom-tailored lending structures and market expertise that allow for unique execution.
“When it comes to a new acquisition or project within our portfolio, our first call is to Alliance Bank of Arizona,” said Kremer.
According to Ericka LeMaster, Senior Managing Director of Commercial Real Estate for Alliance Bank of Arizona, “Our relationship is a friendship and it is shaped by trust and core values. We complement each other exceptionally.”
It is a relationship that continues to thrive, even when unexpected updates arose in the redevelopment of The Alexander, a first-of-its-kind, experiential workplaces for the Southeast Valley. In the midst of transforming this property into a robust, modernized 112,000 square-foot, five-story space, George Oliver incorporated responsive design changes for the COVID-19 environment.
Added Kremer, “The Alexander is just one of several high-profile projects in the George Oliver portfolio. As we strive to create a work environment that delivers an unmatched amenity package and workspace design, it’s really important for us to have solid partners such as Alliance Bank in place.”
