BOISE — What took $20 million and nearly 150,000 man hours to build, used 87,000 bricks, 32,000 linear feet of wire, has 14,000 square feet of reclaimed natural barnwood flooring and over 2,000 light fixtures? That would be The Warehouse Food Hall, the 29,000-square-foot behemoth that nearly encompasses an entire downtown square block in BoDo, bordered by Front and Broad and Eighth and Capitol streets.

The Warehouse Tour

The Warehouse Food Hall is in Bodo in downtown Boise.

Billed as “a culinary, arts and entertainment hub” — it includes the still-under-construction Treefort Music Hall and Cinema West Theaters (a boutique theater). Roll-up doors will provide walk-in access to some outer retail and food tenants including the Treefort Music Hall and BoDo Theaters as well as VOXYN Clothing. Access to the theaters is slated for this fall; Treefort’s access will coincide with its annual March festival.
