Children’s Therapy Place will consolidate at Franklin and Allumbaugh

https://idahobusinessreview.com/2018...nd-allumbaugh/

Quote:
The full-service pediatric clinic Children’s Therapy Place will consolidate its two Boise locations to one 13,600-square-foot facility to be built at Franklin and Allumbaugh roads.

The Franklin location is midway between and a mile in opposite directions from Children’s Therapy’s headquarters. The company also has a physical, occupational, mental health and speech therapy clinic on Fairview Avenue and a clinic for developmentally disabilities and mental health off Overland Road.
This good looking project slid in under the radar and will go before the planning commission next Tuesday. Its a new children's therapy building located on southwest corner Franklin and Allumbaugh (by BK high school).

This is definitely exciting. Safdie Architects have done some amazing projects.

The SLC Library is of particular interest.



But they've also designed the absolutely iconic Marina Bay Sands Resort in Singapore!

Agreed! Super rad. Thanks for pointing out the SLC library connection, that place is a sight to behold.

Also cool Orchard project from TVUrban.... bet we'll see more like that along Emerald & Orchard in the coming years!

The SLC library is a very nice building and a great addition to our city. To bad it is over run by the homeless and feels more like a smelly dirty camp.

I hope what ever nice Library Boise gets, does not turn into what we have.

Thanks for the pics Sawtooth. Does anyone know when the Hesco barriers and fences are coming down? They have been up so long and obscure the beauty of the project. I'm assuming it is to protect the landscaping until it matures a little.

Long time stalker of this thread but figured it was time to join in. Urban Buff what I've heard is that the barriers are staying up until spring. Just like you said, they want to protect the landscaping until it matures a bit but I think the plan is to have some big to-do about fully opening up their property to the public this spring and bring the barriers down. Cheers!

Ahh seems like we can't escape the homeless hyperbole even on the Boise thread. FFS

The SLC library is architecturally magnificent and a great addition to the city. It is host to a number of awesome community events. It's in a great location, too. I'm very happy for Boise to get such a great architectural company to design their library.

Doesn't sound like hyperbole based on quotes directly from library employees. In my opinion, the constant pressure to quell discussion on society's ills exacerbates the problem. Maybe Boise can learn from SLC.

A wise man once said, "If you can't measure it, you can't improve it."

Quote:
And just as Salt Lake City officials are vexed by an increasing incidence of people defecating in public places, so is the Salt Lake County Library System.

"This is public service in its rawest form," Cooper said, defending the proposed addition of a custodian and an assistant manager at the West Valley City library.

"With the diverse population frequenting that (light rail) stop, we're encountering many more homelessness issues, seeing a greater need for custodial services" with blood, fecal matter, needles and used condoms being found around the site, he said. "Many times the homeless are using the restrooms for bathing."

Besides its increasing custodial needs, the library's relatively small dimensions leave it prone to overcrowding. When that happens, Cooper said, fights can break out.

"We call 911 and the police a lot," he said. "That's not in the job description of a librarian.

Caffe Luciano's has opened on the Green Belt in Garden City by foot bridge at White Water Park. Has a nice patio, as it will be needed for the summer crowds.
The food is delicious.

Outside investors are driving growth in the valley. 'It will go on for the next few years'

Quote:
There’s no doubt that Boise has tipped, says George Iliff, managing owner of Colliers International’s Boise operation.

Iliff, a leader in the Treasure Valley’s commercial real estate sector, says the idea that author Malcolm Gladwell made popular in his book “The Tipping Point” reflects what’s happening in the Treasure Valley now: Interest by outside investors is accelerating the growth of our commercial real estate market.
Quote:
“I think we’re headed down the right path,” Sawyer says from the firm’s Boise office. “We’re seeing large corporate clients from California, Texas and Florida that are looking to relocate or expand in Boise. We’re just hampered by a lack of product right now.”
