Denver-based Zeppelin Development has begun construction on a 140,000-square-foot office building to house Denver-based Boa Technology. The building, named FLIGHT, will reside at 3575 Ringsby Court, as part of the mixed-use TAXI community. Flight will have a green roof and is targeting LEED silver certification. UMB Bank will provide funding for the project.
Boa Technology first moved into TAXI in 2012 and has grown from 55 employees to now 143 employees – while at the site’s DRIVE building. Maintaining its global headquarters in Denver, Boa and its proprietary closure system has seen international success with offices in Austria, Japan, Hong Kong, and China, and with more than 300 brand partners worldwide.
Integrated into cycling, snowsports, outdoor, athletic, utility, safety and medical products, Boa Technology enhances the user experience by improving performance, fit and function through the patented Boa closure system.
“Our mission at Boa is to manufacture a technology that speaks to the fundamental needs of its users,” said Mark Soderberg, CEO of Boa Technology. “In order to continuously innovate, our team requires an inspiring space where ideas thrive, and Zeppelin truly gets that. We’ve really enjoyed our time at TAXI and love working with Zeppelin Development. We share similar goals and values, and Zeppelin has continuously demonstrated an unmatched understanding of our needs, which will without a doubt translate to this next phase.”
Kyle Zeppelin, Principal of Zeppelin Development, said, “Boa shares in our values of collaboration, community and humanity as the core of a successful and growing entrepreneurial business. They are an integral part of the culture at TAXI, and by commissioning a building that harnesses these principles to specifically meet their needs, we’re ensuring a thriving partnership for many more years to come – with a homegrown, Denver success story that we’ve watched take form under our roof at TAXI.”
FLIGHT was designed by Dynia Architects who has designed many projects for Zeppelin development including The Source Hotel
FLIGHT will feature a two-story atrium, outdoor meeting spaces and a 100-bike storage facility. In addition to the 13,000-square-foot green roof, a 170 Kilowatt solar photovoltaic array will offset about 20 percent of the building’s electricity use.
