very nice project--something to finally get excited about!

i think it's taller because commercial floors tend to be quite a bit taller than residential.

OR... OR! I could give you a bunch of renderings, details and a story

ICCU seems to be doing well especially when considering their other development off of Eagle Road and the interstate.

Imperial has really short floor plates - 1960s era. Four extra stories plus taller floor plates = much taller.

And someone else asked - it will take up seven lots on the block.

That block will really change with the addition of those buildings and the nearby Vanguard.
The lot is fenced off.


PB's data center was experiencing issues the past few days and is back up.

This is a wish come true because I've always thought this wall would be perfect for a mural~public art and is definitely a Boise thing to have done.





Dawson's new facade is looking sweet.



More Beer
Boise's beer boom continues. We are lucky to live in a state where much of the ingredients are grown for great beer.

I have more that I will post in the thread at this link:

COVID-19 not slowing down projects
While many commercial real estate projects have been put on hold or slowed down by the coronavirus, Truax said that he’s in a position to move forward with his projects, starting with Lot 50.
With the possibility of in-migration further increasing after COVID-19 as people take on more remote work or seek to live in smaller cities, building infill will become more pressing, he said.
“We are going to move out of this COVID arrangement a little more quickly than other markets,” Truax said. “We’re also going to see people moving in. Our hope is that we continue to see more development focused in the inner core rather than outside, to preserve some of the farmland.”

Boise to pilot closing 8th Street to allow for socially distanced dining

By MARGARET CARMEL mcarmel@idahopress.com
May 19, 2020

BOISE — A popular downtown Boise street will soon be closed to most vehicle traffic to allow for more socially distanced restaurant seating.


Boise City Council on Tuesday approved a resolution to close a section of Eighth Street most of the day to allow restaurants to expand patio seating to the curb. Pedestrians and cyclists will use the street to move around, instead of the sidewalk.


Mayor Lauren McLean and city council members were highly supportive of the move; the vote was unanimous.



“This is one step we can take by allowing more room by utilizing some of the public right away in some of these places to allow businesses to have more customers and still follow the guidance on social distancing,” City Council President Elaine Clegg said. “It’s really hard to reopen when you can only serve half or a third of the customers you normally do.”
