With original tenant leaving, One Capital Center gets a night light

Boise’s One Capital Center is making a host of changes in advance of the departure of its longtime key tenant.

Since its opening in 1975, the building has served as primary headquarters for the JR Simplot Co. – and even was the main office location for the billionaire founder of the company until his death in 2008.

The Simplot company hopes to move to a new headquarters building a few blocks away (though that move has been delayed from an initial September start into 2017 after a series of construction issues, including a leak that delayed last week’s hoped-for initial move-in date.).

One Cap is being remodeled in many locations – including elevator lobbies and restroom facilities.

In addition, new high-powered lighting accents its signature notched external corners, helping the building stand out in Downtown Boise.  The lights were first switched on last week.

Colliers notes a whopping 91,000 square feet of space is available for lease in the building, almost 40% of the total square footage. The entire first, second, third, tenth, 12th and 14th floors, plus parts of the ninth and 11th floors are said to be ready on January 1 – though Simplot’s slipping move timeline may impact that availability.

In addition to Simplot, Centurylink has call center facilities in the building (the building was evacuated and more than 20 people were treated by paramedics in 2014 after a CLink employee rode a gas scooter inside the building as part of a sales contest). Centurylink added large signage atop the structure earlier this year.
