This Week

On the rise | Coeur d’Alene Press

The site is fenced and blocked off for construction of the 18-story Thomas George building in the northeast corner of Front Avenue and Third Street.

Demolition of the former bank facilities starts this week, and excavation and shoring for the below-ground parking area should begin mid-summer. Construction will start mid-summer for about 20 months with a March 2024 completion date.

The amenities of the place of 60 luxury living units and retail shops on Front Avenue include a covered main entry, a main lobby with a fireplace, a club room with an indoor-outdoor lap pool, a lakeview fitness center, a golf simulator facility, a conference room and a marina third-floor outdoor terrace with a fire pit and lake views.

All residences have double-sided fireplaces, views from terraces and two-car garages. The name Thomas George responds to principals of the development having multi-generational North Idaho history. Check
