boise’s tallest buildings are pretty small, but I have a feeling the next couple of decades will see the skyline really change significantly. should be fun to watch.

here’s the current list.


Zion Tower (323 feet, under construction)




U.S. Bank Building (267 feet)




One Capital Center (206 feet)




Grove Hotel (198 feet)




The Aspen (196 feet)




not included in this list is the Idaho State Capitol building, but it would rank third at 208 feet:
