A recent report from Marcus & Millichap Real Estate Investment Services Inc. shows that demand for medical office space in the Phoenix metro market grew in the past year, prompting developers to break ground on 140,000 square feet of new product that is expected to come online by mid-2013. Investment sales volume for medical office buildings has doubled over the last four quarters as investors show particular interest in properties valued between $1 million and $10 million.

Ventas’ medical office portfolio encompasses more than 320 properties throughout the U.S., 14 of them in Arizona, according to the company’s website.
