This iconic upside-down building in Tucson is for sale for $1.9M | Subscriber

A longstanding Tucson office building that doesn’t require directions beyond explaining that it’s an upside-down pyramid is for sale.

Vantage West Credit Union currently occupies about 3,800 square feet on the first floor of the 11,379-square-foot building at 1101 N. Wilmot Road.

The second floor is vacant and is being marketed by former tenant Picor commercial real estate.

Broker Richard Kleiner said an ideal tenant would be an office or medical user.

“It certainly has high visibility and high recognition,” he said of building that was designed by local architect Robert Swaim of Swaim and Associates in the late 1970s.

The asking price is $1.9 million.

Another inverted pyramid exists in Arizona — the Tempe Municipal Building.

“What prompted that design,” Kleiner said, “I don’t know.”
