In 2002, while canvasing Southgate Commerce Center on foot, Andy Ogan knocked on the front door of a 4,000 SF suite occupied by a global leader in aviation inventory solutions, AvAir. As an aviation solutions provider for Boeing, Airbus, and turboprop aircrafts, they expressed interest in a larger building. Ogan shared an opportunity for AvAir to enter into a 15,000 SF building for sale in the immediate area which led to the following:

Santan Technology Center – Chandler, Arizona – 162,714 SF

Santan Technology Center is the 6.17-acre AvAir headquarters site with two new buildings totaling 162,714 SF. This project broke ground in 2014 and was delivered in 2015 for $15,000,000, making it the largest SBA loan in Arizona history. The property was then marketed by Ogan and sold in 2017 by Reasons Aviation, LLC for $26,500,000 on a sale/leaseback basis. This sale/leaseback paved the way for Bob Ellis to sell AvAir to his partner, Mike Bianco.

Since 2002, Ogan has worked with AvAir to expand and handle its real estate footprint. Simultaneously, Ogan is managing Reasons Aviation’s real assets with the goal of dramatically increasing its holdings. Reasons Aviation is a holding company managed by the former owner of AvAir, Bob Ellis.

“I have been working with Unbound Development and its principal, Andy Ogan, for 20 years. We purchased our first company building with the assistance and experience of Unbound Development 20 years ago. This first property enabled our company to have the infrastructure necessary for the success and growth of our company. Since our first property, we have worked with the professionals at Unbound Development to provide insight and guidance as we grew and expanded over time into four additional larger properties.

At each stage of our growth and need for commercial space, Unbound Development was instrumental in us making the correct investments not only for our company but also as investments that have provided an excellent rate of return over time.”
