This eight-story non-profit Foundation Building is envisioned as hybrid community center that will include enclosed workshop spaces such as Maker’s Studios, Movement Studios, A/V Studios, Inspiration Studios, multi-purpose JUMP Studios, a Pioneer Auditorium, Cooking Studios, Café and kitchens, a tractor exhibit, art installations and some interior exhibits. Open air exhibitions — ‘skygardens’ — will be distributed at strategic locations and integrated into the above-grade parking structure.
Parking for 100 cars is provided above-grade and parking for 500 cars serving adjacent site functions is provided below-grade. A green roof atop the below-grade garage, in combination with additional site area, forms a 7.5 acre park that includes an amphitheater and multiple areas dedicated to community events and the Simplot Foundation mission of inspiration.
