Athlos Academies Headquarters Opens in Downtown BoiseJuly 26, 2017
CCDC staff and Board Commissioners were invited to the grand opening of Athlos Academies on June 30, 2017. During the ceremony, guests heard from Co-Founders Jason Kotter and Ryan Van Alfen, as well as Mayor Dave Bieter. Since 1927, the CC Anderson building has transitioned to the Bon Marche’ Department store in 1963, to the former Macy’s building, and now to Athlos Academies. This charter school organization has transformed the building into its new corporate headquarters and training facility.
In early 2016, CCDC’s Board of Commissioners approved a Type 3 Transformative Agreement that paid for public improvements such as sidewalks, street trees, historic streetlights, and planters, as well as preservation costs for the exterior facade, which will be protected under a facade easement with the city.
