Give Their Regards to Broad Street: A Celebration of Boise LIV District

Behind the scenes—and beneath the pavement


Quote:
"Oh yes, it's going to change," said Falconer. "Not just this neighborhood but the way people will move and be connected to the rest of downtown. We're talking about being better connected to the parks, the Greenbelt [and] the Cultural District. People are about to start living right here," she said, pointing to The Fowler, the soon-to-open 159-unit apartment building next door to Boise Brewing and Boise Weekly. "When people live here, that triggers another wave of development and retail."


"We're talking about everything from an expansion of the city geothermal line to so-called Silva Cells to manifest healthier tree growth, to permeable pavement beneath parking spaces" said Hubble. "Wow! I can get pretty excited about this. I know it sounds strange to get excited about drainage and stormwater, but think of it: the Boise River is integral to the city itself, and managing what flows through the multiple collection systems can be a complex animal."

Boiseans love 8th Street. Can the city re-create its feel in a new ‘old’ place?

Quote:
Around the turn of the last century, Boise’s Central Addition just north of Julia Davis Park was an up-and-coming neighborhood. After Union Pacific laid railroad tracks on Front Street in 1903, the neighborhood changed, becoming more urban, more commercial and eventually a little run-down.

Now, the Central Addition has taken on yet another identity. It’s the city’s first “sustainable LIV district.” LIV stands for “lasting environments, “innovative enterprises” and “vibrant communities.”

Looks like the CVS planned for Capitol is not moving forward.

CVS pharmacy faces fight at State and 17th streets

T.M. Crowley had applied June 27 to build the second store at Capitol Boulevard and Ann Morrison Park, but that application was withdrawn Aug. 16. Tenants in the Fisher Retail Building at that corner in July did not think a move was imminent.
