There are some very exciting projects in the works for Boise and its surrounding communities. It could be a few months or maybe even a few years before some of the projects are ready for guests.

You know we’re talking about In-N-Out Burger, right? For whatever reason, the California-based fast food restaurant is the buzz when it comes to development in our area. Probably because it’s something more fun than luxury apartments that no one can afford to live in.

Projects for an In-N-Out in both Meridian and Boise have already been approved. Our friends at BoiseDev were the first to notice that construction is underway at the location at The Village at Meridian. They report that if the project stays on its current timeline, it could be finished by September.

Over in Boise, permits to demolish the old Pier 1 and vacate some old easements have been filed. We’re not sure if this construction is directly related to the Boise In-N-Out, but we did notice that the old Pier 1 parking lot has been torn up a bit. We snapped this photo on Easter Sunday.
