BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - The two companies that have partnered to build an office building on the corner of Eighth and Main Streets in downtown Boise now say they have five new tenants signed up to lease space.
Last year, Meridian based Gardner Company and Zions Bank announced they were planning to build a 15 story office and retail building at the site of the infamous Boise Pit.
The Pit or Hole is the common name for the unfinished Boise Tower project that has sat dormant for years at the intersection.
Zions Bank plans to move its Idaho headquarters into the building.
The companies say in a press release that five new tenants have secured leases in the building.
- Holland & Hart LLP
- Ruth's Chris Steak House
- CTA Architects Engineers
- First American Title Company
- Idaho Technology Council
Gardner also says that because of the new tenants, the plan for the building has changed to add a 16th floor.
The company says with the five new tenants, 140,000 of the building's 268,000 total square feet of office space is now leased.
Construction is expected to begin this spring and be completed in 2014.
So, 16 floors
, but its still one heck of a good looking tower. Congrats
