State of Idaho Completes Purchase of HP’s Boise Campus for $110 Million
Back in March 2017, we reported that the state of Idaho was planning to purchase HP’s sprawling Boise, Idaho, campus for about $110 million. Now the Idaho Statesman reports that the state of Idaho has completed the purchase of the campus at 11311 Chinden Boulevard in December 2017 for $110 million.
According to the Idaho Statesman, HP reduced its number of employees at the Boise campus from a peak of about 7,000 to fewer than 4,000 by 2014, with about 2,000 employees remaining at the site.
The state plans to move some of its agencies into some of the buildings gradually over the next several years. HP Inc. will remain in five of them for now, while Hewlett-Packard Enterprise will keep at least one, with both HP Inc. and HP Enterprises now renting space as tenants.
Initially, the state was interested in the mostly empty Building 2.
The Boise campus includes eight buildings with over 1,300,000 square feet of office space, 200,000 square feet of warehouse space, and nearly 200 acres, including 54 acres of parking lots,
Early last year, HP Inc. is said to have signed a lease for a new campus to be built on 12 acres in Springwoods Village in Houston, Texas.
