Deloitte is planning to occupy an additional 100,000 square feet at Rivulon by early 2020, Nationwide Realty Investors President and Chief Operating Officer Brian Ellis said Sept. 26.
The space will be in an additional building in The Commons at Rivulon, the mixed-use development at Gilbert Road between the Loop 202-Santan Freeway and Pecos Road.
The company first moved into another 100,000-square-foot building at the The Commons at 310 E. Rivulon Blvd., Gilbert, in late 2018. The Commons is planned to have four buildings and 400,000 square feet of office space.
Deloitte is a multinational professional services network and one of the “big four” accounting organizations. Gilbert approved a deal in June 2018 for the company to bring an operations center to town. The company said it had plans to bring as many as 2,500 jobs to town, which would make it the town’s largest employer when that mark is reached.
“As we continue our development of Rivulon, we are pleased to have Deloitte further cement their significant presence in The Commons,” Ellis said in a release. “This expansion is a testament both to the strong Gilbert market and the energetic office environment Rivulon is fostering for the business community.”
Nationwide is also constructing two additional 100,000-square-foot buildings at The Commons, according to the release.
Deloitte did not announce any additional jobs in conjunction with its expanded footprint at Rivulon. Nonetheless, Mayor Jenn Daniels welcomed the news in the release.
“Gilbert continues to flourish as [is]evident with this additional commitment from Deloitte at Rivulon and in our community,” she said. “Our town and the entire Phoenix Metro area has grown in a magnitude of ways from the partnership and impact of employment opportunities Rivulon has provided.”
Rivulon, which sits on 250 acres, is also home to Isagenix International’s world headquarters as well as offices for Morgan Stanley, Amerifirst Financial and Merrill Lynch. Its retail tenants include LA Fitness, Wildflower Bread, Sauce Pizza & Wine, Jersey Mike’s Subs, Yogi’s Grill Teriyaki & Roll and Grabbagreen.
