Grove Hotel plans to upgrade outdoor terrace

The Grove Hotel’s fourth-floor terrace will get an upgrade. The large, triangular area along Front St. and Capitol Blvd. consists of an open deck.

Weddings and other events occasionally take place in the area, but crews often set up tents to shade guests from the summer sun.

A series of upgrades would make the space more inhabitable. Permit applications with the City of Boise would add a new steel structure that would accommodate a retractable awning to provide shade. Festoon-style lighting would also hang from the steel structure.

Crews would also build fire pits and seating made of stone and wood along the edges of the space near Capitol and Front.

Workers will build a series of canopies and new railings along the building side to provide outdoor space to guest rooms along the third floor.

“These upgrades are meant to enhance the outdoor environment and provide a space that will be active for more times throughout the year,” Rory Heggie with CSHQA wrote in an application letter.

Most of the improvements will not be visible from the street, and City of Boise planning staff approved it without a hearing.
