Large semiconductor company set to expand Boise presence

Marvell Semiconductor, a large California-based semiconductor firm, will expand its Boise offices, according to permits.

The company leased a 28,590 square foot building near Park Blvd. for the expansion. The new office project will revamp the first and second floors of the Clearwater Building at 700 S. Clearwater Ln. into new office space for as many as 444 employees, according to the permit. The project is valued at $2.9 million.

The Clearwater Building once housed ch2m Hill, and later became home to the Idaho Industrial Commission. The state agency recently relocated to the State of Idaho’s new Chinden Campus. It sits along the Boise River Greenbelt near The Ram restaurant.

Marvell partners with Boise-based industry giant Micron Technology on several product lines. First launched in 1995, Marvell now employes more than 6,000 people around the world and generates more than $2.9 billion in annual revenue.

Marvell currently operates out of a smaller space on Explorer Drive in West Boise.
