An interesting story behind a unique building

An interesting story behind a unique building

Hidden amongst the tall trees in Hayden, Idaho, yet only a few minutes from Highway 95 on Government Way, is where you will find a building, which is unpretentious on the outside but takes you to another place once you enter.

Constructed from 1983 to 1986 by the Louisiana Pacific Corporation with a budget of $1.5 million—which was a substantial sum for the time—it was built to operate as the corporation’s one-of-a-kind divisional headquarters.

In 2004, Bielec Enterprises, Inc. purchased the building from Louisiana Pacific, which then leased space in the building. Ten years later, in 2014, LP slowly began to scale back their operations at the facility, and as of August this year has completely relocated to their headquarters in Tennessee.

“We have completed extensive renovations through the years, including new carpet, paint, HVAC, boiler and security while keeping the building’s unique historical character,” says Paul Bielec, president of Bielec Enterprises, Inc. “The Atrium now has multiple tenants in offices ranging from 300 square feet to over 2,500 square feet.”

The space currently houses attorneys, financial specialists, marketing firms, real estate professionals, public companies, as well as a large variety of other interesting businesses, according to Paul. Currently there are suites available to lease from as small as 400 square feet and up.

The Atrium Professional Building, located at 13403 Government Way, sits on more than 14 acres and offers more than 30,000 square feet of rentable office space—and is over 50,000 square feet with the more than three-story tall atrium included. The building also offers 75 parking spaces.

“The atrium area includes a lazy river with waterfall, bridges and hundreds of huge live plants and trees,” says Paul.

In addition, the interior of the building is primarily composed of cedar with vast laminated wood beams and over 220 4’x6’ skylights for natural light, which allows for a bright and sunny office space no matter what time of year.

“This building is truly a hidden gem that very few people in the area are aware of,” says Paul. “Imagine going to your office in January or February and feeling like you are in the tropics!”

If you are in the market for a new office space, and you are interested in leasing information or taking a tour of the Atrium Professional Building, Paul welcomes you to contact him by calling 208.699.9000 or emailing
