If your Boise-based business is having a hard time finding suitable office space in the market or your business has a unique or specialized need if it is setting up a new location in the greater Boise metropolitan area like Meridian or Nampa, then consider The Sundance Company.

The Sundance Company prides itself on providing options. Whether you are looking to purchase land or prefer a build to suit, The Sundance Company can and continues to offer a multitude of options through its land development and build to suit alternatives in the Treasure Valley including build to suit options in Boise, Meridian, and Nampa.

If no building currently in the Boise market can accommodate what your business is looking for then you should consider designing and building the next facility to suit the needs rather than renewing your current lease or taking an “as is” building available in Boise, Meridian, or Nampa.  Build-to-suit opportunities represent one of the alternatives available to companies in today’s complex commercial real estate environment. Many executives in charge of procuring space for their companies find the build-to-suit option advantageous, and The Sundance Company can help you with those needs.
