Idaho AGC Going Up

Cobby’s Sandwiches closed its classic Broadway Ave. location in January, and now the building – and one next to it – has been torn down.

Demolition crews are removing both the Cobby’s building and the adjoining LA Nails salon this week. Permits with the City of Boise says the buildings will be pulled down and gravel placed over the top with the existing parking lot to remain.

Until earlier this year, the buildings were owned by an out-of-state company based in Sherman Oaks, CA.

Norco founder Jim Kissler recently bought the land.

“I bought that properly because I like the location on Broadway,” he told BoiseDev. “I don’t have any concrete plans or signed tenants at this time. Most likely I will put up a spec. building and hang up for lease sign on it.”

He said food and drink tenants that cater to students at nearby Boise State University are likely targets.
