Simplot Company to build new headquarters

The J.R. Simplot Company is planning to begin construction of a new headquarters building in Boise, Idaho, beginning in late 2013 or early 2014.

A company press release announcing the plans indicated that the final size and configuration are still under consideration, but the building will be about 10 stories high and measure roughly 300,000 sq. ft.

The new headquarters should be ready for occupancy two years after construction starts and will be located in downtown Boise between 9th and 11th and Front and Myrtle Streets.
