Press Release

For Immediate Release

Boise, March 30, 2017:  Strider Group LLC (“Strider Group”) is pleased to announce the execution of a 5-year lease for 37,500 sf in its Beechcraft Building, located in the Gowen Industrial Park (Gowen and Eisenman corridor, Boise, ID), to PODS Enterprises LLC (“PODS”). PODS is an international company that revolutionized the moving and storage process with the invention of their portable storage containers in 1998, which introduced a new level of freedom and flexibility to its clients. Since their founding, PODS has been a leader in the portable storage industry, with a network of more than 230 secure PODS storage centers in North America. 

“Developing a building on ‘spec’ always involves a leap of faith. We are thrilled to have a lease for over 70% of the building prior to its completion. It’s a bit of a relief, and an affirmation of our efforts and strategy,” stated Scott Thomson, Managing Director of Strider Group. “Or course, we couldn’t have done it without our design and construction partners – Larson Architects, the Land Group, and Layton Construction. They’ve designed and built us an institutional quality building that will serve tenants for decades to come.”

“We also would like to thank Steve Foster of Colliers Boise. He made this happen, not only bringing PODS to the building, but also shepherding the lease all the way through signing. It was a pleasure working with him,” continued Thomson.

The Beechcraft Building, located at 6895 S Eisenman Road, is a new 52,500 square foot Class A concrete tilt building with 32' clear height and ESFR sprinklers, with such modern, efficient features as skylights and LED lighting. The Slipstream Building, its 60,000 square foot sister building, is nearing completion in Caldwell, ID.

Strider Group LLC is a family-owned and operated real estate development company focused on speculative and build-to-suit industrial development in the Treasure Valley area and has a land portfolio over 160 acres in key industrial locations such as Caldwell and Boise.
