The block on Capitol that borders Front and Broad streets was used as an unpaved parking lot for many years. Today the corner is home to a very popular Trader Joe’s grocery store that provides people who live and work in downtown with a grocery option as well as two restaurants, with one pad open for development. erstad ARCHITECTS worked closely with the developer and the City of Boise to come up with a design that enhances this prominent downtown corner. The buildings’ design includes a varied combination of materials from clay masonry brick, prefinished steel panels, wood ceiling/soffits and decorative steel panels that provide screening throughout the project. A drive-thru service window is available for the remaining pad once developed.
