BOISE -- The Owyhee Plaza in downtown Boise has a new owner with new plans to make the space more attractive to businesses and retail stores.

Boisean Clay Carley and his real estate company Owyhee Place LLC purchased the hotel properties and says they hope to start making renovations later next year.

Carley calls the Owyhee Plaza a cultural icon in the community and says it has unrealized potential to add vitality to the downtown core.

Carley says this project completes a downtown bookend for him. He also owns the Old Boise 6th and Main development.

He expects to announce a development plan early next year.
