The McDonald’s at Overland and Cole near I-84 in Boise is about to get a revamp.

The building was constructed in the early 2000s, replacing another McD’s elsewhere on the site.  It was given the chain’s “retro” look with large golden arches and red and white tile accents – reminiscent of the look given to the chain’s eateries in the 1950s.

The update will tone down most of the retro styling and replace it with a more modern greige stucco and brown brick look.  The large illuminated yellow (OK, golden) arches will remain.
