Here is what’s up with the old Baldwin Lock & Key/Sav-on Cafe building

Demolition work is underway inside the former Sav-on Cafe/Baldwin Lock & Key building at 16th St. and Main St. in Downtown Boise.  

 Building permits show crews are working to combine the two spaces and remove all interior finishes (what’s known as a “vanilla shell”). 

Building owner Bill Snyder tells BoiseDev he is “entertaining a number of options” for the space, but doesn’t have anything to announce just yet.  

The Sav-on closed in 2013 after nearly 70 years in business. Baldwin moved to Garden City in December.
