Tall and Slivery

Above is a rendering of The Aspen, a 17-story, 194-foot tall condo building under construction in Boise. This building is only 32 feet wide at the base — exceptionally narrow for a building of that height. For comparison, 1310 East Union is 40 feet wide, but it’s only 65 feet tall.

Nothing else remarkable about this project as far as I can tell, but worth noting as a good example of an innovative design solution for an awkwardly shaped site.

UPDATE:   Turns out the parking garage was designed from the get-go to be wrapped in building.  So to my mind, this building is not innovative infill, but more like lipstick on the pig of car-oriented development.
