Demolition Planned To Make Way For Simplot Project

An aging Boise warehouse’s days are numbered, as the Simplot Family Foundation prepares to build its $70 million, downtown urban meeting place. Demolition of the Compton warehouse building that’s sat for years just southwest of downtown will begin next month.

That’s to make room for Jack’s Urban Meeting Place, named after Jack Simplot, the potato tycoon who founded the billion-dollar, privately held J.R. Simplot Co. that sells spuds, fertilizer and beef.

The six-story JUMP project is expected to be complete in the spring of 2014.The construction is projected to create more than 700 jobs.
When the project is completed, plans call for it to include five working studios, civic event and meeting spaces, antique tractor sculptures, an urban park and an outdoor amphitheater.
