12th & Idaho

At 28 stories, 12th & Idaho is the tallest residential tower in Idaho, designed with an intentional simplicity to emphasize the unique rooftop amenity experience at its peak. Inspired by Boise’s Sawtooth Mountain Range, the designers used the topographical concept of a basin, plateau, and summit to organize the 298-unit building.

Offering generous amenities, 12th & Idaho’s 16,000 square-foot amenity program seamlessly blends the indoors and outdoors across two levels at its crown. The “plateau,” or first level of the terraced amenity deck, is focused on active uses and interaction: a co-working lounge provides residents with individual workspaces as well as meeting rooms; a gaming room offers an indoor golf simulator; a social lounge opens onto a pool deck with cabana seating and an outdoor theater experience. The “summit” on the top level encourages private uses, featuring a club room with kitchen for reserved events. Individual fire pits, a garden area, and a private standalone spa complete the outdoor offerings on this level. A grand staircase connects the “plateau” to the “summit,” envisioned as a representation of traversing a mountain trail.

At the “basin,” or ground level, 12th & Idaho brings 10,000 square feet of retail space to the area.  An enclosed parking garage also adds 400 much-needed parking spaces for residents and underserved adjacent buildings. The parking garage utilizes a fabric enclosure featuring a mountain-inspired graphic that allows for natural light and fresh airflow, reducing the need for fans and exhaust mitigation. An additional private terrace for residents sits on top of the parking garage.
