Portion of downtown Winco building to be torn down

TOK Commercial

Changes are coming to the Winco Foods building in Downtown Boise.

Construction crews plan to tear down a small retail space attached to the story along Myrtle St. in coming weeks. In its place, a new larger retail building will spring up.

The 1,030 square foot building used to house a Martinizing pickup location. But the dry cleaner closed up shop, leaving the little spot empty.

Now, the Boise-based grocery giant wants to build a larger 4,350 square foot retail building. An application letter with the City of Boise indicates the building owner “has been working to get a tenant,” but didn’t name what might go in.

The area will be a flurry of construction activity in coming months, with several multi-family projects in various stages of development. A new apartment project is planned on land Winco Foods owns adjacent to the downtown store.
