The Gardner Company, which has already changed the footprint of Boise's downtown core with its Eighth and Main Tower and the under-construction City Center Plaza, announced yet another major proposed development Thursday.

According to a news release, Gardner plans to fill in a five-acre area west of the JUMP project with a name-brand hotel, condominiums, an 800-car parking garage and space for yet another hotel or office building.

"The project will serve as a gateway to downtown and is a collaborative effort with stakeholders that truly connects and expands the existing downtown core," said Gardner Chief Operating Officer Tommy Ahlquist. 

Framed by Front, Myrtle, 11th and 13th streets, the property is known as "Parcel B" among city planners and considered by many to be one of the largest undeveloped areas in downtown Boise. Up until recently, there had been some conversation about the possibility of a small soccer stadium in the same location, but Gardner officials said the site was too constrained and "we determined that soccer was not feasible at this site." Gardner officials quickly added that they would continue to work with the city of Boise and interested parties in securing a home for soccer in Boise.

Gardner said the proposed hotel would have 200-300 rooms, meeting space, and a full service food and beverage operation.

"Based on the demand generated by the expansion of the Boise Centre, the consolidation of Simplot's operations to the property adjacent to Parcel B and other growth in Downtown Boise, we believe this hotel will be an exciting addition to the community," said Gardner Vice President David Wali.
