You asked: Here’s what is happening at Broadway & Beacon

Boise Regional Realtors

We’ve received a flurry of questions about a new building going up at the corner of Broadway Ave. and Beacon St. in Boise.

Crews tore down the former Hong Kong Oriental Spa building in 2017. This spring, workers began building a new building.

According to City of Boise permit records, a new 2,007 square foot building is under construction, with parking for three cars on site. Cross access to vet clinic across the alley provides additional parking.

“The building will be skinned with aluminum panels, corrugated/perforated metal siding, and horizontal metal siding,” Ryan Drew with Larson Architects, PA wrote in an application letter. “A band of red aluminum panels at this location will accent the overall silver theme of the building, providing contrast.”

Jim Kissler, owner of medical supply company Norco, owns the lot. He is also working to develop the former Cobby’s lot nearby.

The records do not identify a tenant for the building. Loopnet lists the building for lease.

Greenstone Properties acquired the property when the developer thought it might build a ballpark with Boise State nearby. That attempt at the project didn’t work out and it sold the small parcel to Kissler.
