President of the Idaho Farm Bureau, Brian Searle, gives us a verbal layout of the planned new building that will occupy the same space as the old Farm Bureau building only a lot bigger and more sophisticated. David Sparks, Idaho. Speaker2: Ag Today in 1999, Farm Bureau leadership hired architects to look at taking down the old building and replacing it with something new. One of the limitations for a new building was that Farm Bureau only owned one corner of a city block, which limited the amount of office space and parking. As the new century began. The idea of a new building didn't go away. It just changed with an eye on the future in Boise. The Idaho Farm Bureau State Board purchased a small adjacent strip of land in 2007. With these purchases, the Idaho Farm Bureau Federation owned the entire half of the Boise BLOCK. After the pandemic of 2020, the Idaho Farm Bureau State Board voted to hire an architect firm to explore building opportunities to capitalize on this prime real estate close to the capital we have saved for decades and been wise in our financial decisions to undertake this opportunity. This concept involves a five story building that would have office space on the first floor for the Farm Bureau, would only occupy a section of the building while the other areas of the building would be occupied and financed by other investors. Speaker1: Farmers and ranchers will visit Farm Bureau. This will be very exciting.
