You Asked: What’s going into new building next to The STIL on Latah?


We’ve been following the project on Latah St. near the railroad tracks in Boise for several years. This week, a new building started to go up on the site of a former car wash, prompting a flood of questions to BoiseDev.

The STIL is already open – the local ice cream shop was the first to take the leap on the conversion of car wash into a dining hot spot. Next, Push & Pour committed to the site. The Garden City-based coffee spot will soon add its third location in an empty building next to the STIL.

So what’s happening in the new building?

Permits filed with the City of Boise show that it could be another homegrown spot.

David Rex is listed as the tenant for the new 2,372 square foot building that is now under construction. With his wife Lizzy, Rex operates The Wylder pizza restaurant in Downtown Boise and Certified Kitchen and Bakery in the North End.

We checked in with Rex for details on what they plan for the 13 S. Latah St. restaurant – but he didn’t reply.

A previous plan for a gastropub didn’t materialize.

The Push & Pour building, formerly the gas station garage and car wash, will keep its rollup front windows. The new building under construction for the Rex concept will also include rollup doors in a similar style.

The three restaurants all open onto a common area with outdoor seating under a canopy once used for a gas station that once stood on the site.

Push & Pour says it will open this spring.
