Construction start is about a month away for the new seven-level, 546-space parking garage slated for Front Street between Fifth and Sixth streets.
“We have a grading permit to start excavation as soon as the utility work is completed,” said garage developer Clay Carley, who is general manager of Old Boise. “That could be Octoberish.”
Carley said utility relocation started at the start of August on the roughly one-acre property where his garage and a seven-story, 138-room Home2 Suites by Hilton hotel are scheduled to be built. He said hotel construction should start two or three months after garage work starts.
Garage and hotel could be completed in late 2019 or early 2020, Carley said.
Middleton, Wisconsin-based Raymond Group is the hotel developer. Carley and Raymond jointly own the property as Front Street Investors LLC, but Carley independently owns the garage and Raymond the hotel.
