After a series of office moves, Eagle’s PetIQ hopes to build its own headquarters building.
In an application with the City of Eagle, the company asked to build a 55,000 square foot building. The project would pop up in Eagle River, backing up to State St., not too far from Eagle Rd.
“PetIQ is a highly successful Eagle, Idaho based business,” Stan Cole with Cole Architects wrote in an application letter. “PetIQ would like to provide their staff and clients with a modern, quality designed and constructed headquarters building. The new building, at full build out, will provide for a staff or approximately 300 people.”
The three-story building would stand 59-feet tall, requiring a height exemption from the City of Eagle. The planning & zoning commission will hear the request at a hearing tonight. It will also need to pass muster with the city’s city council and design review commissions.
City staff recommends allowing the extra height.
“The applicant’s narrative further states the requested increase is also critical in providing the necessary staffing requirements, floor to floor clearances, design elements and rooftop mechanical screening features,” city staff wrote.
Building features include rooftop decks, a cafeteria, onsite gym and outdoor plazas. The plan calls for 239 parking spaces – 19 more than the 220 required.
The companyfocuses on several verticals, including veterinarian services and “veterinarian-grade” pet products. PetIQ publicly trades on NASDAQ owns a number of pet-focused brands, including VetIQ, PetAction and Betsy Farms.
