ICCU Idaho

As first reported by BoiseDev.com this fall, Clay Carley is leading a group that plans a hotel and parking garage for a site adjacent to the CW Moore Plaza Building at 5th & Front in downtown Boise.

Carley and Raymond Management Corporation hope to build the eight floor hotel with an as-yet-unnamed brand on the site of the former Boise Rescue Mission and Loma’s Import Car Service.

The hotel would feature a large patio along 5th Street attached to a restaurant and bar, plus pool, meeting rooms and fitness center.  It would add 140 hotel rooms to the downtown market.

The hotel would wrap around a parking garage with space for nearly 700 cars and 50 bicycles. The garage could be funded in part by tax funds from the Capital City Development Corporation through its River/Myrtle/Old Boise district, if agency leaders are asked to and decide to participate.

The design features a charcoal and grey look with nickel & zinc accents.  The garage is screened with metal panels and blocks along the alley side of the project.

The project will now go through Boise’s design review process for approval.

Carley initially had hoped to build a 23-story building on a portion of the site – with approval coming in 2007.  A separate 2009 proposal would have redeveloped another part of the same block at Main & 5th. The economic crater stalled those endeavors, like so many others of the era.It is the latest in an unprecedented spate of hotel projects in the downtown core.

The project joins a crowded field – with more than 700 new hotel rooms in some phase of construction or planning just in the core area.
