looks like the article got the height wrong, and published this addendum:

Correction: an earlier version of this story misstated the height of the building due to a figure on a construction drawing that was misleading. Because of the incorrect height figure, our appraisal of it as the tallest building in the state was not correct and has been removed.
this makes more sense, actually. the rendering doesn't look 325... more like 225, which my guess is what the building's actual approximate height will be. if someone can change the height to just ??? that would be great.

however, if the developer wants to go taller, he can based on this:

The parcel for the building currently carries a C-5DD zone, which is the city’s code for the central business district. Its the most-dense zoning classification in Boise, and allows for unlimited height without any special exceptions.
one interesting thing about this proposal is its automated robot parking system:

An elevator parking system. The building would include space for 192 cars, which would serve tenants in the building, as well as a building Ludwig partially owns next door.
so... no new tallest for boise for now. still, it's a nice project filling a current surface parking lot, which would be nice.
