BOISE TOWER UPDATE

10 posts in this topic

Alright, lets start with the history of Boise Tower

-Developer Rick Peterson brings his plans for the Boise Tower, a 300' foot condo tower to the city

and CCDC in 1997.

-City and CCDC approve the project

-Rick Peterson breaks ground in 2001, completion expected in 2003

-Peterson runs out of money, and no investers help him out

-CCDC sues Peterson for the development site, so they can locate a developer for the tower

-Case goes to court continously for years, until Feb. 2006

-Now the CCDC has located a developer for the tower, and he as taken some of the condos out, and added a 150 room hotel, with up to about 70 condos, same floor count and height. The tower will have a new name, and a new design for the tower.

was there to see it happen, was even in the CCDC office while they were working out the legal details. Should make a good addition to the downtown.

Here's my post from the other thread that was supposed to be here.

Good news. This is one major step towards this being a reality. I would say that this has a pretty good chance of being built. Look forward to seeing this thing rise!

Wow.

I remember seeing the signs on site for this tower when I visited Boise in July 2000. I remember thinking "Wow, Boise's really growing up!"

I hadn't really thought about it since then, but I sort of assumed it would have already been built by now. Guess I was wrong!

^^that whole chain of events could make quite a movie treatment, maybe the cashless developer can bank on that :P.

it is being redesigned by the new developer, who said they are thinking of upping the floor count to 30. It is still approved, but will be a while until the new design is released.

it's good that boise is getting a new tower buit downtown. though 300 feet is under 30 stories, it will make the skyline look a lot nicer (hopefully... I haven't seen any drawing or anything)... and hopefully influence a few more buildings to be put up.

I live in Boise when I was a kid, so I've always kept a secret eye on it hoping that they replace/hide those ugly brown and square buildings. This is a start! :)
