The Athlos Academies HQ in the former Bon Marché (aka Macy’s aka CC Anderson) building on Idaho St. is just about done. The defining feature may be a football field and basketball court indoors.  

Athlos will train teachers of its academies around the country in the Boise facility — and will incorporate the indoor sports facilities. 

Instead of green, the Athlos folks (naturally) chose blue.  

 “We now have turf and a hardwood basketball court. The turf is blue—a reflection of our pride for being located in Boise, Idaho, home of the iconic Boise State blue turf.” Cameron Arial, chief development officer at Athlos Academies said. 

Athlos employees started moving in late last month.
