Project Nearing Completion July 2017
The first phase of the Boise Centre expansion opened in September 2016. The new facility known as Boise Centre East has welcomed many conventions, conferences and local events. Boise Centre East features 36,000 square feet of space including a new ballroom and eight additional breakout rooms. Just outside the ballroom is a two-story glass enclosed lobby and pre-function space overlooking The Grove Plaza and fountain.
The second phase of the expansion began in July 2016 and entailed building an elevated concourse to provide guests easy access between Boise Centre and Boise Centre East. Along with the concourse, three escalators and an elevator were installed inside Boise Centre’s main lobby. The concourse was completed in April 2017 and is open for guests.
The final phase of the expansion began in late 2016 and includes renovations to the existing Boise Centre facility to maximize square footage. A new junior ballroom, a meeting room and outdoor patio will be built and many new restrooms will be added. Work will be finished in July 2017.
Upon completion of the multi-phase expansion in July, Boise Centre will have increased from 18 meeting rooms and spaces to 31 and will feature over 80,000 square feet.
