It’s been a big couple of weeks for companies announcing new offices in Colorado. Coming on the heels of the news that WeWork is opening a Denver office, and news that Google is breaking ground on their new Boulder campus, two more Boulder companies announced big moves today.
Cloud storage company SolidFire, said they would be moving their corporate headquarters into the still-under-construction PearlWest development at 1048 Pearl Street. The company said they will lease 62 thousand square feet, about three times as much space as their current offices. Eventually, the company thinks the space could hold as many as 400 employees, an increase of 150 from their current count.
The PearlWest development is a four story, mixed office and retail building. Located just a couple of blocks from where SolidFire currently resides, the building will eventually include several restaurants, including one on the roof, and possibly a theater. There will be modern car parking elevators, with room for 300 cars. Galvanize has also signed a lease for space in the property.
Agribotix, a provider of data analytics and agriculture focused drones, also announced that they would be moving into a larger Boulder office. The company said they would be moving into a 3,500 square foot space at the Boulder Municipal Airport. Their new offices will be about three times the size of their current offices at 2983 Sterling Court.
Agribotix’s new offices follow a couple of major partnership announcements. Last week the company announced a deal with Agco, a major farm equipment manufacturer and distributor, as well as a joint venture with Eco BCG to sell the company’s products in Latin America.
