It was recently announced that the company Gogo would be moving its aviation business division, Aircell, to the EOS office building in Broomfield’s Interlocken Advanced Technology Park. According to an article in the Denver Business Journal, Aircell currently has about 200 employees in working in two separate facilities who will make the move.
The real estate deal with Aircell includes more than $1 million in economic development dollars from the state’s Job Growth Incentive Tax Credit. While the company has not said how many jobs it plans to provide in the area, the 112,300 square feet it is leasing in the 186,231 square foot office building will provide space for the company to grow. Aircell provides in-flight connectivity and entertainment to 6,000 business aircraft operators worldwide, the article stated.
The EOS building, owned by Houston real estate firm Hines, was completed in 2012 but has sat vacant ever since, the article reported. It earned the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design platinum certification. The name EOS is both the acronym for “Environmental Office Space” as well as the Greek goddess of the dawn. The EOS building is solar-powered, the article noted.
The Broomfield community that Interlocken is located in is among Colorado’s most thriving. According to a December report, the neighborhood has seen a more than 85 percent increase in the number of households in the past five years. A modest increase in median household incomes in the area and a healthy job market, as well as its close proximity to schools, are credited with the residential growth in the area.
Aircell’s relocation doesn’t involve moving employees from one state to another, as its facilities are already in the Broomfield area. However, if you’re planning to relocate your offices from outside the Denver Metro region, Housing Helpers can help you with all facets of relocation for your company and your employees.
