Boulder’s SparkFun eyeing new headquarters @ Boulder Daily Camera.

Nathan Seidle, the founder and CEO of SparkFun, is in the process of buying an undeveloped property just north of Highway 52 in the Boulder Tech Center. Plans for the 4.31-acre site call for a two-story, 80,000-square-foot building for SparkFun’s headquarters.

The new site is located just outside the Boulder city limits.

The new property will provide some breathing room for SparkFun, which is coming close to outgrowing its home at 6175 Longbow Drive. After a couple years of double- and triple-digit sales growth, the firm that once occupied a quarter of the Gunbarrel property now fills the entire 52,000-square-foot building.

SparkFun’s new headquarters, at 6333 W. Dry Creek Parkway, will be built-to-suit and developed to serve the company’s needs now and offer flexibility for the future, he said.
