The Sundance Company’s Flagship Property

December 9, 2009 Leave a comment

The Sundance Company recently completed constructions of 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.

The Sundance Company 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.

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.

The interior finishes include mosaic glass and tile, artisan wall coverings, and domed ceilings. 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.

The Sundance Company keeps building in sluggish Boise office market

December 15, 2008 1 comment

Why did major developer The Sundance Company begin construction of the 124,000-square-foot Silverstone Corporate Plaza in a down economy now producing lower overall demand for lease and office-condo space?

Construction is under way at 3421 E. Overland Road, Meridian, Idaho. The site lies in Silverstone complex in the southeast quadrant of Overland and Eagle roads. Sundance Chief Operating Officer Travis Anderson said he expects the first tenant build-outs – for Home Federal Bank, a Silverstone concierge service and 8,500 square feet of meeting space – to conclude by September.
Staying “extremely low-leverage” means Sundance does not depend on bank financing for building construction or tenant improvements, he said. The developer that largely self-funds projects can take advantage of an economic slowdown when materials costs are lower and labor availability is higher, he added.
Silverstone Corporate Plaza’s exterior configuration – reflective glass and granite façade over a structural steel frame – costs more than some alternatives but enables crews to work more efficiently through winter, Anderson said. For example, workers avoid the long curing times associated with some other materials, he said.
“We’re also confident that any recession would be over by the time construction is complete,” Sundance Asset Manager Michael Reich said.
Sundance likes to keep about 100,000 square feet of new shell-and-core office space available for corporate users to evaluate, plus or minus 20,000, Anderson said. Power Engineers recently occupied more than three quarters of the space in the 70,000-square foot Diamond Point Building, on which construction began in Silverstone just less than a year ago. That deal at Diamond Point and Home Federal’s deal to occupy part of Silverstone Corporate Plaza (IBR, 11-24-08) prompted Sundance to start the Corporate Plaza, he said.
Sundance continues to receive inquiries from medical and large corporate entities, he said. Continued interest from corporate, large-space occupants continues partly because they see an increase in available workers, he said.
A developer who uses little or no financing can afford to “carry” a vacant building during economic slowdowns, Anderson said.
“We can be flexible and work with tenants,” he added. For example, a developer who is largely self-funded can accommodate a tenant’s request to move to a smaller space – which may not meet a lender’s requirements at a given time, he said.
Silverstone benefits from having El Dorado Business Campus next door, in the southwest quadrant of Overland and Eagle roads, Anderson said. Both parks benefit from a location-driven identity that boosts demand, he said.
Reich said big office parks often attract similar or cross-reliant businesses that benefit from being close to one another. The risk is that if a large-space occupant closes, downsizes or moves, a nearby business that caters to it may do the same, he said.
Some big, corporate spaces could be divided to suit smaller tenants, but the developer may have to offer rent discounts if the spaces aren’t ideal, he said.
Rectangular buildings with numerous entrances and ample storefront glass offer the most flexibility, Anderson said.

As the Corporate Plaza stands to become Sundance’s flagship property, it is anticipated The Sundance Company will relocate its corporate office to this state-of-the-art facility from its current location within the Blackeagle Business Center (Overland and Maple Grove)in Boise.
