Northgate Shopping Center, home to Albertsons, Idaho Youth Ranch, Rite Aid, Goodwill and the Northgate Reel Theater – is about to get a makeover.

The center at State St. and Glenwood will update with a blue, slate and tan look, with metal copper topping, metal panels and a dry stack stone cladding treatment, according to designs approved by the City of Boise. Stell trellises will also be added in sections. New “anchor tenant” type treatments will be added for the Youth Ranch and Liquour Store tenants among others.

The current look dates to the 1980s. The portion of the center which houses Albertsons is not currently slated for upgrades.  The retail chain recently revamped the front of its store.

The project is valued at $1.2 million and is in the building permit stage.
