You asked: Here’s what’s up on ParkCenter next to Delta Dental

We’ve had a flurry of questions – about the flurry of activity on ParkCenter next to Delta Dental in Boise.

Construction crews took to the large empty site next to and behind the building at 555 W. ParkCenter in recent weeks.

It’s all part of an expansion for Delta Dental of Idaho.

“The existing office building was constructed approximately 20 years ago and has become too small for Delta Dental,” Mark G. Gier with CSHQA wrote in an application letter. “The company has grown so, in order to fit additional staff into the building, they have resorted to using smaller work stations. Also, there are inadequate locations for laying out documents, collaboration, storage and holding meetings.”

Gier’s letter said 70 people currently work at Delta Dental of Idaho – but that will grow to 99 by 2025, and 105 by 2029.

Instead of expanding the current building, CSHQA proposed to build a second structure that is tilted to match the angle of ParkCenter Blvd.  A passageway will connect the new and old buildings.

The parking lot on the side of the building will move to the rear away from ParkCenter Blvd.  A small garage building is also planned in the parking area.

The existing building will also be remodeled to integrate into the newly revamped campus.

The City of Boise approved the project earlier this year.
