The space that formerly housed the International Market on Franklin Rd. near Curtis Rd. is set to be rebuilt – but it won’t be a market any longer.

The fire was intentionally set in September of 2015 – and the market never reopened, though some vendors have set up shop elsewhere.

Now, the building will be restored and reopen as a branch of the Christian Faith Center Assembly of God, which currently has locations in Caldwell, Nampa and Oroville, California.

The new church will be about 11,500 square feet and will not include any significant exterior changes. The outside of the building had previously been restored and a new fire sprinkler system installed. 

The project will first have to go through Boise’s Design Review process before construction begins.
