Here is a story about the Silverstone Business Campus that appeared in the Idaho Business Review in 2008.
The Sundance Company recently started building the 124,000-square-foot Silverstone Corporate Plaza at 3421 E. Overland Road in Meridian, Idaho. The upscale office-condo building, in the Sundance-developed Silverstone Business Campus in the southeast quadrant of Overland and Eagle roads, will include sizable space for Home Federal Bank.
“By developing this project as an office condominium, we hope to provide our clients with the flexibility to either own or lease high-quality office space in a magnitude unprecedented in the Valley,” Sundance Chief Operating Officer Travis Anderson said in a release. “We believe this was a key factor in the selection of the Silverstone Corporate Plaza by Home Federal Bancorp for executive offices and a drive-through banking branch.”
Home Federal President and CEO Len Williams said in an interview that the bank plans to occupy about 12,000 square feet of office space. The bank will relocate some commercial loan officers, residential mortgage lenders and some executive offices to Silverstone Corporate Plaza.
“At this point our corporate headquarters remains in Nampa, but we will have some executive office space in the new Silverstone building,” he said. Home Federal will own its office space and the full-service bank branch.
The branch will be about 8,000 square feet, built on adjacent property and attached to Silverstone Corporate Plaza, Williams said. Drive-through banking facilities will be sited under the building.
Anderson said in the release that The Sundance Company likely will move its corporate office to Silverstone Corporate Plaza, which “stands to become Sundance’s flagship property.” Sundance now is based in the Blackeagle Business Center, at Overland and Maple Grove roads in southwest Boise.
Silverstone Corporate Plaza is slated for completion by mid-summer 2009.
The Sundance Company, one of the largest commercial real estate developers in the Boise area, said the availability of on-site concierge services, shared-use conference, board and training rooms, and projected on-site executive suites “will provide the flexibility and efficiency expected from today’s sophisticated consumer.”
“The service infrastructure that will be incorporated into this project will not only be a benefit to the tenants of the Silverstone Corporate Plaza, it will also allow Sundance to continue to exceed the service needs of our entire client base,” Sundance President Chris Anderson said.
Interior finishes will include mosaic glass and tile, artisan wall coverings, and domed ceilings. Among other planned features are a slab granite façade, covered executive parking, a “generous parking ratio” an “ample tenant improvement allowance” and the availability of owner financing, Sundance said.
