Fast in the Morning Wild 101

Via Idaho’s public records act, BoiseDev obtained an Apri, 2019 feasibility study that looks at possible upgrades to Albertsons Stadium.

BoiseDev Project Tracker

  • Albertsons Stadium expansion

Presented by TOK

The study, from architecture firms Hummel and Populous, outlines some of the ideas previously announced. It also provides additional detail about what school officials considered for the expansion. The school stresses it has not engaged an architect for the project, and as we further detailed this morning, no timeline is set.

Details in the feasibility study could change as the project evolves.

Reimagining Albertsons Stadium’s east side

A sectional perspective shows a new lower bowl on the east side of the stadium. At the top, room for the new loge seats the school talked about last week. Each loge box could include four seats, a TV, tabletop, radiant heater and access to a new 5,000 square foot club space.

A new connection could link the eastside concourse to the existing concourse along the Bleymaier Football Center. It would provide a new terraced seating area in NE corner of the stadium.

The concourse itself would feature both new restrooms and new concession stands.

The ground floor would feature the academic center, with study areas, offices, classroom and conference room.

“A dual-purpose VIP lobby welcomes athletes to the new Academic Center. Boasting over 9,000
square feet of counselors offices, tutoring rooms, classrooms, and study areas, the new Academic
Center will accomodate (sic) the educational needs of Boise State‚Äôs student-athletes,” the document notes.

New gates, elevators and ticketing areas are also included.

Also envisioned, according to the study, are 21 tailgating restrooms, available from the exterior of the building.
