LONGMONT — A half-million-square-foot commercial building in Longmont has been acquired by an investment group for $68.5 million.

Companies that may be looking for a spot on this coveted list may benefit from asking themselves a few questions while striving for or managing substantial growth within their business.
The group acquired the building from EQC Operating Trust, the real estate investment trust of Chicago-based Equity Commonwealth.
The building’s primary tenant is West Safety Services Inc., which handles 911 calls. It is a division of Nebraska-based West Corp. (Nasdaq: WSTC). West Corp.’s presence in Longmont came about when it acquired Intrado Inc. for $465 million in 2006 and renamed it West Safety Services Inc.
