A new industrial building at 2000 Taylor St. in Louisville will break ground in November.

Packers Plus Energy Services Inc., a Canadian manufacturer of multi-stage completion systems for technically challenging oil and gas wells, will lease 59,137 square feet of industrial space in Colorado Technology Center at 1960 Cherry St. in Louisville.

The lease is the latest of several signed this year at the Colorado Tech Center, developed by Etkin Johnson Group. The company started construction in March on the 1960 Cherry building, the latest addition to the Colorado Tech Center.

Packers Plus maintains operations in Canada and the U.S. and intends to occupy the Louisville space on Jan. 1, 2016.

“This was the right tenant, in the right building at the right time,” said Ryan Good, executive vice president and partner at Etkin Johnson. “Packers Plus will be a great addition to the Colorado technology Center and we’re pleased to have them as a tenant in our portfolio.”

Once 1960 Cherry is fully leased, Etkin Johnson intends to start work on more than 600,000 square feet of new development in the Colorado Tech Center over the next two years. A 120,877-square-foot industrial building on 11 acres at 2000 Taylor Ave. is scheduled to break ground in November with completion expected in the spring of 2016.

Etkin Johnson is also under contract to acquire another 45 acres for development on the southwest side of Boxelder Street and CTC Boulevard. The company will break ground on 152,992 square feet there in the first quarter of 2016.

“This wave of new leases demonstrates CTC’s appeal to leading technology companies seeking Class A, energy-efficient industrial space in a strategic location,” Good said. “The pace at which we’ve been leasing our new properties is a testament to the quality of the development and the desirability of the business park.”
