Tour De Coeur d' Alene

Hello SSC forumers- I posted a *small* photo tour of my hometown of Coeur d' Alene, Idaho on the SSP forum, so I thought I would bring it here too.. hope you enjoy my short tour:

Here is a little photo tour of the eastern edge of the Spokane metro (approx. 570K pop), my beautiful hometown of Coeur d' Alene (pop 40K). The self-professed "playground of the Pacific Northwest" is growing at an enormous rate.

View of downtown and city beach from North Idaho College

Here is our newest high rise, McEuen Terrace. It will soon have an 18 floor neighbor, the Parkside Tower. I am waiting to hear from architects Miller Stauffer on a rendering of that building.

The world famous Coeur d' Alene Resort on the lake.... owner Duane Hagadone is talking about turning the grounds in front of the resort into a $20 million botanical garden.

Here's a fairly uninspiring high rise with the resort and lake in the background... boring but tall so I had to include it.

World's longest floating boardwalk as viewed from Independence Point

Ok, so now I'll show you some proposed/approved buildings that we will be seeing in the near future.

Planned lofts on Sherman (main street), very close to McEuen Terrace.

This building, to be put in CDA's Riverstone development, will be the city's tallest. It will surpass the resort, and be in direct competition with Spokane's tallest

This is the RiverView Tower (only 5 floors so not a tower IMO), but fairly nice looking, and will be in Riverstone as well.

This is a rendering of the new CDA Library, to be built right next to McEuen Terrace and will have lake views.

This is the entrance to Riverstone

Current construction in Riverstone- this is a 14 screen Regal Cinema complex with 100,000 sf of retail space attached.

Ok.. said I would post some more pics- here's a few more I took while I was wandering around downtown.

On the boardwalk...

Brix Cafe- super cool place, VERY good drinks.

City Beach from the boardwalk

Some cool old houses on the waterfront

Old Fort Sherman entrance- CDA before it was CDA

Cafe Doma

The Painter's Chair gallery and downtown shops

Just thought this looked cool:

And the last stop on my walk.... Hawaiian Shaved Ice! YUM. I'll add more pics later, but this is as many as my limited attention span will let me post. ENJOY the great weather!

If you're interested, check out and to see some exciting developments here.

Oh yeah- I just found these recently so I'll add them to the end- this is that Parkside Tower I mentioned earlier:

Awesome pics

Well done. I absolutely fell in love with CDA when I interviewed for a job there last year. Seems like an up and coming place.

Looks like a great place to live. I like the name, Heart of Alene, pretty unique.

^ Heart of an awl, or sharp hearted. It was the name given to the local aboriginals by french trappers.

very nice photos and renders of the highrises! I'm amazed a so small town can unleash those skyscrapers, I guess it's a popular lake resort town. Some of the shots looks lot like Seattle Lake Washington waterfront.

Very nice! Great photos. Looks like CDA is booming like Boise. I just wish Boise would get on the same page as CDA and get some highrise condos built!
