Grand Canyon Gas Logs celebrated a milestone this month as they manufactured the longest log set in the nation. The builder, Whitestone Reit requested a custom 120” treatment. Whitestone Reit is a publicly traded real estate investment trust company, and in April, Michael Parrish, Director of Construction, contacted family owned and operated Arizona Fireplaces to collaborate on selecting the right fire feature for Market Street at DC Ranch, a rustic-style shopping center with boutiques, restaurants, salons & other services.
Capturing the Expanse
The task at hand was marrying the sheer expanse of the fireplace wall and anchoring it as an intimate place to gather John Farrier, Outside Sales for Arizona Fireplaces to work on evaluating specs and teaming up with Grand Canyon Gas Logs to supply the perfect solution.
Second, it is the largest log set sold and installed by Arizona Fireplaces in their storied 40-year history which sees more gas log sales per-capita than any other part of the country. The 120” gas log set is the largest production log set in the fireplace industry. This is definitely a significant installation showcasing a glimpse of our manufacturing capabilities.”
To see the fireplace in person, go to Market Street at DC Ranch located at the southeast corner of Thompson Peak Parkway and Pima Road in Scottsdale.

Born and raised in Chandler, AZ, Elliott White is a true Arizonan. His alma mater: Arizona State University. One of the (many) things we admire about Elliott is his zest for life, his desire for more – for being the absolute best he can be in all aspects of life.

Elliott enjoys the southwest lifestyle and is an athlete at heart. He has competed in six Ironman races. His achievements didn’t come without challenges. A car struck him one day while riding his bike. It was devastating. Two surgeries and countless hours of physical therapy followed. In 2018 he made a comeback. His next milestone? Elliott proposed to his girlfriend Courtney White. They married in October 2019 (and he competed all in the same month!)
