As Boise law firms flee downtown parking woes, the Angstman-Johnson law firm is moving downtown from its long-time Lakeharbor Lane location near Collister Road.
Angstman-Johnson bought the entire 11,000-square-foot second floor of the Chase Bank Building on Capitol Boulevard for just over $1 million, founder and former manager T.J. Angstman said.
“We find a lot of our clients are downtown,” Angstman said. “A lot of our employees are extremely excited to be in the downtown environment.”
Angstman acknowledged there are parking hassles.
“Parking is scarce downtown,” he said. “The building we are in is attached to a garage. There is a wait list. Eventually, we’ll get parking. Basically, it costs us $100 a month to park. Our employees are highly compensated. They can afford to pay to park.”
Bicycle commuters can bike up the garage ramp and directly into the Angstman-Johnson office, where there will be bike storage, a locker room with shower, and even a sleeping pod, Angstman said.
Angstman-Johnson is doubling from nine attorneys to at least 16 as the one attorney and the staff from the law firm May Browning May’s Boise office and other attorneys join the firm. Angstman said the firm will have about 38 employees by the time the move to Chase Bank occurs in early December.
Pontifex Capital of Boise represented Angstman-Johnson in the acquisition and Peter Oliver of Thornton Oliver Keller Commercial Real Estate represented sell Laural Park II LLC.
