Growing Boise fraud and risk management software startup Kount is set to move to a new headquarters downtown.

They will move into the 100-year-old Langroise Building – aka John Alden Building – aka 10th and Main.  The former home to John Alden Insurance has been vacant for some time, but Sawtooth Development is reworking the property after finishing up the attached One Nineteen condos project next door.

Kount counts 100 employees presently at its current building along the Boise River in the Lusk neighborhood,, but says that number will jump to 200 by the end of 2019.  They will take up more than 35,000 square feet in the building across several floors.

“From the proximity of the Boise State computer science program to the dynamic growth of food, entertainment and retail options in surrounding blocks – Downtown fits the culture of our company and supports and energizes our talented team which is at the core of Kount’s success,” Kount Vice President of Human Resources Kate Lenz said in a prepared statement.

As reported yesterday on BoiseDev, Sawtooth plans a total revamp of the building.

“Working with design partners CTA, Tenth and Main will showcase a contemporarily designed facade, floor to ceiling windows, an upgraded lobby, new elevator, and a potential 5th floor expansion,” Sawtooth Development Group CEO Shane Felker said in a prepared statement.
