Gardner Co. to build new medical office

Don Day


BOISE - Gardner Co. continues to add to its development portfolio - adding a new project on a long-empty piece of land in east Boise.

The company applied to convert a dusty empty lot next to Fish and Game Headquarters on Walnut Street into a medical office building.

The piece of land was once home to a warehouse structure and was part of the Morrison Knudsen campus in the area - but that structure was demolished at some point between 2006 and 2009 according to historical aerial imagery.

Now, Gardner plans to build a 27,000 square foot medical office building on the site, with associated parking for 124 cars. Site plans show it being home to two separate, unnamed medical offices.

The building would feature a brick and EIFS (aka stucco) facade with aluminum accents.

The building will go through Boise's design review process -- first stop an October 12th review at city hall.
