In just over a year of existence, Ball Ventures Ahlquist closed a flurry of deals. It broke ground on Eagle View Landing. It sprouted several buildings at Ten Mile Crossing. It cut a deal with Brighton Corp. It launched a chain of health clubs with Kristin Armstrong. It even bought a medical group. Oh… and maybe they’ll build a Topgolf or something like it.

Now BVA has another large project in the pipeline.

President and CEO Tommy Ahlquist said his firm put a large piece of land under contract in near Interstate 84 in Caldwell.

St. Luke’s Health System currently owns the nearly 120-acre piece of land, but listed it for sale at a list price of $12-million.

Ahlquist said it would ad to BVA’s portfolio of land with freeway access.

“It will be a mix of office and industrial which is interesting for us because it’s so close to Sky Ranch where the City of Caldwell has done a nice job attracting industrial tenants,” he said. “They are out of room now so it’s a natural extension of that project.”

The parcel sits along Highway 20-26, which the Idaho Transportation Department is working to extend from Eagle Rd. to Interstate 84. The land sits within the Caldwell Urban Renewal District.
