The Trey McIntyre Project is moving its Boise headquarters from downtown to the larger former Five Rivers Interiors building on the city’s east side, an employee said.

Brian Aune, managing director and general counsel with the Trey McIntyre Project, could not be reached immediately. The dance company is on tour in Asia.

But the Trey McIntyre Project said in an email to supporters May 31 that it signed a multi-year lease on the 15,000-square-foot former Five Rivers building and would move from its smaller space at 775 Fulton St. downtown. The nonprofit organization said its new location, at 2285 Warm Springs Ave.,  will provide room to expand.

HC Company, general contractor on the tenant improvement, waived its fee for the dance company, said Jay Sonnenberg, development services manager for HC.

Foothills School of Arts & Sciences will expand into the former Trey McIntyre Project space, said Piers Lamb, director of student life at the private school.

Foothills School, at 618 S. 8th St., will occupy about 70 percent of the building’s space when it moves, Lamb said. The school will use the space for a kindergarten class that will replace a combined kindergarten-first grade class, he said. Remodeling is set to start around July 1 and conclude by Aug. 20, he said.

Downtown Boise Association Executive Director Karen Sander said the Trey McIntyre Project first looked downtown.

“I imagine they will still be very connected to downtown, and I hope in the future they can move back,” she said.
