The 80-plus year old Hoff Building in downtown Boise is for sale.

The Idaho Business Review reports that the Hoff, currently owned by a group that includes John Comick, Patrick March, Jim Tomlinson and Darryl Wong, went on the market on Friday, March 20, and is being listed by Colliers International.

IBR reports that the 14-story Art Deco building is currently managed by Tomlinson & Associates. According to its current leasing agency, The Hoff has 86,791 square feet of leasable space and is linked to Boise's geothermal line.

Meanwhile, a lifeline has been tossed to some of the last remaining historic homes in Boise's Central Addition. In Wednesday's Boise Weekly, we'll have details on plans to move, salvage and/or deconstruct five of the homes that were built in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The cluster of homes, on Fifth Street between Broad and Myrtle streets, needs to be moved for a planned  six-story, 160-unit residential/commercial complex.
