New co-working space aims for indoor/outdoor blend

Another new co-working space is popping up in Boise – this one aimed at the Collister neighborhood in the northwest part of the city.

Fort Builder Co-Work Space has applied to covert a vacant flower shop at 5304 W. State. They hope to build a “clean, modern” space with indoor and outdoor working areas.

“Our beautiful old building will be fully renovated into a comfortable meeting spot with work spaces indoors, in addition to outdoor work and gathering space under large mature trees,” Amber Lawless with Fort Builder wrote. “We are planning to create an oasis where our members and the community feel inspired and connected to nature”

The building used to house Cluff Floral, but has been vacant for more than five years according to the application.

Fort Builder will have garden beds, an outdoor deck and more. Inside a full kitchen aims to allow folks to cook meals on site.

It joins a spate of recent co-working spaces, including Wheelhouse Boise, Office Evolution and a pair of offerings from Trailhead.

The Idaho Press first reported Fort Builder.
