North End wine shop set for outdoor expansion

The Boise Co-Op’s wine shop building is set to get a facelift.

The building’s owner applied to revamp the property – and add a large covered patio outside of the win shop along Fort St. The new area would allow seating for about 18 people along the building.

The rest of the building facade is set to get an upgrade, with new paint, signage and wood-textured embellishment.

The building, constructed in 1962, originally housed a variety of small neighborhood shops. For years it housed Jim’s Coffee Shop, which featured a distinctive rooster on the roof. The shop closed in 2016, and the rooster found a new home.
