But a major piece Coeur d'Alene version is expected to be completed before the end of this year.

  5. For the Riverstone Project in the NW corner of the city, the developer has proposed building 4 165' towers which should look like this: The architect for the towers, Miller Stauffer, is the same architect that is currently building Parkside Tower and the Vox Tower in Spokane (Spokane's new tallest building, which will be 33 floors 350') Miller Stauffer Riverstone is coming along nicely.

  7. Some pictures of Coeur d'Alene taken last month. Sorry about the low-quality of some of the pictures: Cd'A Resort (tallest bldg. in Idaho outside of Boise-216ft.) 609 Sherman Avenue (7 story bldg. downtown) McEuen Terrace (171ft.) The Terraces (6 story bldg. overlooking the Cd'A Resort Golf Course) Cd'A Resort Golf Course (has the world's only floating golf green) A view of downtown from about 2 miles away. The trees are around 90-100ft., so only the tallest buildings can be seen from this viewpoint
  8. Here's a screenshot from the Parkside Tower construction webcam. I also included a link to the cam. Construction on the 213 ft. tower is progressing well. The 2-story underground parking structure is nearly complete. Commercial tenants should be able to move in around December, with residents following around April of next year. Parkside Tower webcam
