Restaurants/retail envisioned for old Bench car wash

Fast in the Morning

The old Like Nu Car Wash on Latah St. near the Morris Hill Cemetery could get new life.

The owners are pitching the space for a pair of restaurants or potential retail, according to a sales flier from Story Commercial.

According to the Ada County Assesor, the car wash first opened in 1968, operating under a number of names and owners over the years.

“This property is undergoing redevelopment and is perfect for a number of different retail uses: restaurant, brew pub, coffee shop, retail shop, etc. This property is located in a neighborhood that is under-served for retail services and offers great bike and vehicle access.

The location is in an area of the Bench seeing changes and expanded retail – including the new Petite 4 French bistro on the other side of the railroad tracks from the car wash location.

Another car wash on Bogus Basin Rd. is set to be converted into a bike shop.
