A short jaunt from downtown Twin Falls, on the corner of Eastland Drive and 4th Avenue East, a small putting green invites the curiosity of onlookers. Behind the green’s multicolored flags sits an angular, steel gray building adorned with sweeping panes of glass and wooden accents; the centerpiece of the 1.687-acre commercial business park known as the Eastland Enterprise.
An Industrial Space with Flair
Eastland Enterprise is a commercial for-lease property addressing the current demand for flexible space to meet the needs of growing businesses in Southern Idaho.
“This space is the first of its kind here,” said Steve Di Lucca, a partner at Colliers International Idaho. “It’s a hybrid design that includes warehouse space with roll-up doors at the back of the building, and professional frontage, making it suitable for retail or office use.”
In addition to customizable suites, tenants of the business park also enjoy high visibility signage, passed by more than 10,000 vehicles per day. The current building houses four suites which will be more than doubled when the second phase is completed to the south of the existing building.
“It’s not traditional office space and it’s not traditional retail space,” said Steve. “It’s clearly industrial but with a little bit of flair.”
Growth in Unprecedented Times
Considering the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on a number of businesses both large and small, it may be surprising to find a business park of this caliber popping up in Twin Falls.
“Industrial work has not been a large target of COVID,” said Steve. “We continue to see immense growth throughout the Magic Valley and although industrial space is tight, we’ve been able to find solutions for those businesses.”
While the majority of Eastland Enterprise’s tenants will be small, regional manufacturers, Steve has worked closely with industry giants including Chobani, Clif Bar and other food processors during his more than 25 years in the Magic Valley. He also played a vital role in the development of River Vista, the premier mixed-use office project along the Snake River Canyon rim.
“The business community here is very friendly and proactive,” Steve said. “The city is great to work with as well. They go out of their way to make projects happen.”
With sights on future signature pieces in the business park as well as along the Canyon Rim, Steve and his team have their work cut out for them, but they approach the exceptional growth with confidence.
“We don’t have a magic wand, but we know how to make things happen.”
