SPRINGFIELD, MO-Opus Northwest LLC started work on the four-story 109,000-sf office property that will be mostly occupied by CPA advisory firm BKD. The $20 million building will be across from the Hammons Tower, where BKD is moving out of more than 50,000 sf, and a new 150-room Embassy Suites hotel.

The property attracted BKD as a new headquarters because of the promise of more space for employees. The company is moving into 80,000 sf in the new building, says Dave Harrison, VP and general manager of Opus Northwest. “Where they are now has 9,000-sf floor plates, the new building has 27,000 sf floor plates,” he tells GlobeSt.com. The company will occupy the second, third and fourth floors on a long-term lease, with 325 employees.

Remaining space will be available for lease, at $23 per sf, full service, Harrison says. He says the company hasn’t started marketing the office, though he anticipates tenants in the 2,000-sf to 15,000-sf range.
