 An eariler plan for a new garage in Downtown Boise
An eariler plan for a new garage in Downtown Boise

Old Boise Inc. developer Clay Carley is moving forward with his plan to build a parking garage in Downtown Boise.

Carley says the area really needs more parking – so he is forging ahead with the project.  

“We are going forward with a garage as soon as possible and a wrap of either residential or hospitality in the future,” he said.

The new garage would be built on a block Carley owns bounded by Front St., Grove St., 5th St. and 6th St.

Carley previously had applied for a hotel project that would include the garage — he says that may still happen, but wants to get going on the parking phase.  As originally proposed, the garage would have parking for 700 cars and 50 bikes. It could hit the City of Boise’s planning team’s radar this summer.
