Eighth and Main Tower

Staff Pick

From Boise Hole to "Hole-y shit, that's a big building," the Eighth and Main tower puts the "sky"scraper in Boise's skyline. At 323-feet-tall, and boasting 20 floors, Eighth and Main officially became the tallest building in Idaho when it opened February 2014. No less than '90s rockers the Goo Goo Dolls feted the ribbon cutting at a massive block party that drew thousands of revelers into the bitter cold. Home to the Idaho headquarters of Zions Bank and law firm Holland and Hart, the tower also hosts Flatbread Neapolitan Pizzeria, lunch spot On the Fly and upscale chain Ruth's Chris Steak House. Though its spire generated some controversy--with a few Boiseans complaining that it looked suspiciously "Mormon Temple-ish"--many agree that it's a glass-and-steel beacon of urban prosperity.
