BOISE | JUMP project

Not exactly sure where this belongs. It's not a high-rise, but it is a significant, $70-million, 7-story, 107-foot high structure and urban park currently under construction in downtown Boise.

A brief description: JUMP (which stands for Jack's Urban Meeting Place in honor of former Boisean businessman and billionaire Jack Simplot, who passed away a few years ago) consists of a 400-space underground parking garage, an above-the-ground parking facility, and multiple floors of meeting space along with a 3-acre park. The facility will offer various classes, art work, meeting spaces and an outdoor amphitheater.

Here are the latest renderings:








Construction is well underway as digging for the underground garage began about a month ago.

Here's an image that shows the location and size of this project. The large lot in the middle of the picture is the spot; the white fence around the perimeter show the actual footprint.

This image was taken about two months ago.

Excellent! Boise is truly coming into its own.

new aerial rendering of the site:



we also just heard that the company building this complex will be constructing a 10-story headquarters tower in this same vicinity, and are hoping to break ground on that structure in late 2013.

actually, it's not a library at all.

it's a multifunctional facility that will house a variety of studios that are available for community use including a kitchen studio, dance studio, crafts studio, multi-media studio and an innovator's studio. it'll also include below and above ground parking, civic meeting spaces, a landscaped park, a water feature, sculpture garden and an outdoor amphitheater.

think "culinary academy" -- essentially, the kitchens can be leased for various cooking classes.

not sure about the total parking spaces. i do know that there will be 400 underground parking spaces, but there will also be a multi-story above-ground structure.

the company that's building it will also be building a new corporate tower on the space, and the employees will be using these lots for their parking. the company currently has 900 employees and are growing, so i would imagine they need to have more than just the 400 underground spaces.

Looks to me you've got a nice foundation for that building. I like the modern architecture of the building and can't wait to see more photos

i haven't seen technical plans, but the project's website does say there will be 400 underground parking spaces, and more above ground.
