Capitol & Front
Capitol & Front was revitalized from a parking lot into a thriving beacon of retail prowess at one of Boise’s busiest intersections. In days long past, this block served as an important rail switch yard essential to commerce and trade. Now it is home to Idaho’s first Trader Joe’s.
Hawkins Companies was excited to develop this historic block into a lively social space in the heart of a thriving urban environment. Artifacts found during excavation were used to make the twenty-six-foot-tall metal artwork on site which includes old railroad tracks, horseshoes, gears and miscellaneous steel parts.
