Government contractor Westwind Computer Products Inc. has relocated its headquarters from Broadbent Business Park near Menaul and Interstate 25 to the Vista West Business Park at 5635-5659 Jefferson NE, according to an announcement by property owner Gemini Rosemont Commercial Real Estate.

Westwind will occupy 8,200 square feet at 5655 Jefferson in the 94,560-square-foot mixed-used park, which is currently 82.5 percent leased with tenants such as Trinity Services, Innovasic, Quell Corp. and SWCA Environmental Consultants, according Gemini Rosemont’s Joe Farr, senior vice president of asset management.

A year ago, the business park was 59 percent leased. The park’s leasing agents are Tom Franchini and Bill Robertson of Colliers International.

One of the reasons Westwind selected the Vista West location is because it is in an officially designated “Historically Underutilized Business Zone,” or HUBZone, which helps small businesses in urban and rural communities gain preferential access to federal procurement opportunities, according to Farr.

Founded in 1992, the company provides servers and storage, virtual desktop infrastructure, software, printers and digital signage for federal contracts and governmental procurement. The company’s leasing business model allows for minimal cash outlays for technology upgrades.

Westwind was represented in its property search by Tim With, also of Colliers.

Headquartered in Santa Fe, Gemini Rosemont and its affiliates own 17 properties representing 1.6 million square feet in the Albuquerque market. Its entire portfolio encompasses approximately 16 million square feet of commercial office space in 22 states.
