Idaho's Tallest Building Opens In Boise


By Brittany Cooper

Boise, Idaho ( KBOI ) Idaho's newest and tallest building is now open.

Thousands of people were in downtown Boise Saturday evening for the grand opening of the 17 story Zions Bank building.

This used to be the corner of the eyesore known as the Boise Pit.

Folks are thrilled this day has come.

"I would say it's almost surreal, to see the progress that's happening in Boise. You look across or look down this street, and we have new restaurants, new stores, it's exciting," explains Boise resident Robin Fuego.

Kevin Murphy adds, "well, I think it's real good for the community, obviously, the local economy, especially, and I think it's real important, and I commented to my wife earlier today, that I think it's real good that they made it such a public event, the opening."

The celebration featured food vendors, a beer garden and live bands including the Goo Goo Dolls.
