The Veltex Building, a 5 story mixed-use building, was completed in early 2004. The location of the building at the corner of 5th and Main Streets in Boise’s downtown Historic District provided an exciting opportunity to design for a diverse group of people with varied needs. The Veltex Building supplements and enriches the existing neighborhood of restaurants, coffee shops, residential housing, offices, and retail shops. The building incorporates a blend of modern elements and historic references to integrate seamlessly into its site. The mixed uses for the Veltex include below grade parking, retail space, offices, and residential units. The building received an Orchid Award from the Idaho Historic Preservation Council in 2004 for Preservation Sensitive New Construction.
