Luigi Benvin

Director of Development

Luigi has been in the local development industry since 1995.  Driven by his passion for real estate development, he takes pride in leveraging his relationships and assisting Clients in navigating through the arduous process of bringing a project from concept to life, or in some cases, back from the dead.

Prior to joining the Sandbox Team, Luigi had the opportunity to develop and hone his skills with some of the industry’s most respected companies including Kiewit, Adolfson & Peterson, Opus, KB Home and Cavan Investments. 

Luigi plays a major role in all aspects of due diligence, acquisition, entitlements, pre-construction, and construction project management.  He has developed great relationships and an excellent reputation with municipalities, power companies, subcontractors, and suppliers. Luigi has a knack for pushing the project players beyond their self-imposed limits to exceed Client expectations.  

A natural people-person, Luigi always finds a way to bring fun to the table.  Outside of his role at Sandbox, if he’s not at a Sun Devil football game, you can find him at the golf course, or mixing it up in the kitchen.
