If you don’t like driving on Capitol or Front at rush hour, just wait to see what the G-BAD boys have up their sleeves for future ideas.
The Idaho Business Review broke a story Tuesday morning revealing plans to potentially demolish the Qwest Arena to make room for a convention center–despite untold failed attempts at “more bigger” with hoteliers, developers, and CCDC. The arena is not a money maker and the GUARDIAN questions how the Greater Boise Auditorium District (G-BAD) can justify all the expansion plans.
From the IBR: The Greater Boise Auditorium District will investigate a new option to expand convention space downtown: tear down Qwest Arena and build a new 100,000-square-foot facility. The idea seemed to captivate the board’s five members during a meeting Nov. 15, and they may formally consider it next month.
