Tenants will start moving into developer Gardner Co.'s City Center Plaza project in July, officials for ESI, the company building the project, said Wednesday.
The first scheduled move-in is July 1, when Clearwater Analytics is set to open the doors to floors five through nine of the Clearwater Building, the tech company's new Downtown Boise on the southeast corner of 8th and Main streets. Boise State University plans to occupy the second and third floors of the same building starting a couple weeks later.
About the same time, several restaurants on the ground floor of the Clearwater Building will open.
Greater Boise Auditorium District, which operates the existing convention venue Boise Centre on the opposite side of the Grove Plaza, will get the keys to its own expansion in early September, district spokeswoman Mary Michael Rodgers said. The expansion — called "Boise Centre East" — is part of City Center Plaza. It includes a ballroom, industrial-scale kitchen and other space in a building just southeast of the Clearwater Building, as well as 12,000 square feet of meeting space on the fourth floor of the Clearwater Building.
The district's first event in the new building is a 350-person international convention scheduled for Sept. 9, Rodgers said.
Construction of a concourse connecting the existing Boise Centre space to the new buildings will start in May and should wrap up by the end of the year, she said.
All lanes on Main Street, which have been restricted since early in City Center Plaza's building phase, will re-open in late July, ESI officials said.
