Biltmore Financial Center (BFC) is comprised of three low- to mid-rise Class A office structures. BFC II is a four-story structure consisting of more than 288,000 square feet. The project is built atop a 10-acre parcel and is connected by a central fountain courtyard with adjoining walkways and landscaping. The property features a large park serving as a separation point between the property and the adjoining residential neighborhood located northwest of the project. The property is located on the northwest corner of 24th Street and Camelback Road, at the heart of the prestigious Camelback Corridor, a highly desirable sub-market within the Greater Phoenix Metropolitan area. Private perimeter roads allow for exit at both 24th Street and Camelback Road. On-site amenities include a deli, a convenience store, generous covered and surface parking, storage in the parking garage, car wash and detailing services, banking services, a hair salon, and a jewelry store.


The buildings are constructed of structural steel frame with post-tension concrete decks. The exterior curtain wall consists of an insulated glass system with granite accent panels. Exterior balconies are situated on several of the upper floors, allowing for unobstructed and panoramic views of Squaw Peak, Camelback Mountain, and the Phoenix Valley. The roof structure is a single-ply, rubberized membrane with river-rock ballast. The roofs of the building have penthouses containing mechanical rooms, tenant cooling units, antennae, and satellite dishes.

Biltmore Financial Center held an Earth Day event to increase tenant awareness of energy efficiency and green practices, as well as to promote sustainability.


The Transwestern standard energy conservation notices are posted in all vacant suites, so prospects are aware of our efforts towards energy efficiency.


?Building management continues to explore additional measures to save on energy costs and building efficiencies. We work very hard to create water saving measures to further reduce water consumption and costs, including rain sensors for irrigation system.?
