One way employers evaluate locations is based on the number of students in higher education within the nearby “talentshed.” There are more than 188,000 students within the 200-mile talentshed surrounding eastern Idaho. Compare this with the 44,000 students in the Boise talentshed and it’s easy to see why eastern Idaho is special.

Nearby universities include: BYU; BYU-Idaho; College of Eastern Idaho; College of Southern Idaho; Idaho State University; Utah State University; Utah Valley University; University of Utah; Weber State University; Westminster College; and others.

Recognizing that jobs are the backbone, Southeast Idaho was specifically chosen for Northgate. With a reasonable cost of living and a high-quality of life, the Pocatello area makes perfect sense for businesses to be able to pay good wages and retain workers, while earning a profit.


By the year 2040 Boise is expected to grow by more than 440,000 and the Wasatch Front is expected to grow by more than 789,000. This regional growth is pushing those markets away from affordability, and into expensive redevelopment cycles and other urban challenges including poor air quality, traffic congestion, and sprawl.

Northgate, at the center of an interstate corridor connecting the booming Salt Lake Valley’s business market with the largest and most prestigious intermountain universities, is strategically situated to capture this growth. With its modern and human-friendly design, Northgate has created the perfect environment for accommodating this growth while enhancing the Portneuf Valley’s already-excellent quality of life.
