This is "the pit" in downtown Boise. It's right in the middle of downtown at 8th and Main Streets. It's a famous hole in the ground with at least two developers saying they were going to build the "tallest building in Idaho" here, with expensive condos and shops. Well, lawsuit after lawsuit, and another one closed yesterday - with a judge saying "no" to a bankrupt developer. So, the pit has been there for over 20 years. What used to stand in its place was the Eastman Building - which was the Overland Hotel (I think) before that. I remember the old building, it had a grand, sweeping staircase you could see through the cloudy, old front windows. When I saw it, it was vacant and crumbling, and when developers eyed tearing it down, there was a "suspicious" fire and it was gone. I wish it could just become a nice plaza, or small green space park.
