Congrats Coeur d'Alene!

Hopefully this one pans out for you! I was up there just a few weeks ago and you have got a lot going on. Now if only we can get a tower of equal height in Boise...

Thanks for posting this. You beat me to it. Been too busy at work!

FYI this project was previously proposed around 2003-2004. I think the chances now are like 75% the project will be approved and completed.

If the building turns out to be 19 stories, it will be around the same height as both the current Coeur d'Alene Resort tower (216 ft. 18 stories) and Parkside condos (213 ft. 20 stories). Combined with the upcoming 173 ft. 15 story One Lakeside building, which should break ground soon, and the 171 ft. 15 story McEuen Terrace building, Cd'A will have a pretty rocking skyline.

As a matter of personal preference and lake sight lines, though, I would like to see this proposed tower a tad shorter though...maybe 14-16 stories. BTW, the rendering in all of the news articles looks horrible...

I'm skeptical of Kootenai County hitting 300,000 by 2030. The KMPO (Kootenai Metropolitan Planning Organization) actually put out numbers the same year (2007) as the article you reference. At that time they estimated the county's population was 148,955 (interesting that the US Census Bureau is just about estimating that population number for 2014...7 years later). At 2.1% growth from the base of 148,955, that would only give Kootenai County a population of 241,845 in 2030.

In my humble opinion, given how the last 7 years have turned out, the county is still growing almost 2% year so I'd estimate Kootenai County having between 200,000-250,000 people in the year 2030.

Congrats on the Cracker Barrel to be built in C'dA. Many want one in Idaho Falls. Maybe it's time to lobby again. They didn't expand at all for about two years due to a change in the Board and new CEO saying no expansion until things were fixed.

I found this interesting vintage photo of the downtown lakefront area as well as current pictures of the modern skyline. The beauty of Coeur d'Alene is in a league all its own.

I drove by that property yesterday and found that the demolition of the existing structure hasn't started yet. It's fenced off but that's it.

One Lakeside tower update

The Coeur d'Alene Press just wrote an update on the towers progress.

http://www.cdapress.com/news/local_n...7893bcb1b.html

Looks like the developers have had to change their approach in order to secure financing but the project is still moving forward.

New Hotel

http://www.spokanejournal.com/local-...llion-complex/

A new hotel is scheduled to begin construction this summer in CDA. It's not a high-rise but it's a nice sized project for that area of town.

Project could boost East Sherman growth

http://bloximages.chicago2.vip.townn...size=760%2C586

This conceptual drawing shows what the planned 30-unit “Lake Drive Apartments” project will look like when they are constructed at 315 E. Coeur d’Alene Lake Drive. A special use permit was granted to developers this week by the city’s planning commission, allowing developers to double the number of residential units built on the property.




ooooh, so beautiful.

There should be news on this project in the next few months as the debt call is today.
