Originally designed in the spring of 1903, the J. W. McLean House was an architectural vision of three brick terraced homes with exceptional decorative qualities constructed for Boise councilman James W. McLean. A flat roof-line with a symmetrical facade and decorative brick-work at the cornice and each entryway. The window sills and lintels were of stone, and added to the decorative qualities of the handsome structure. With exceptional views from each of the three residences, the J.W McLean House provides a unique perspective on the ways in which history and contemporary life blend together in Downtown Boise.


The crowns of historic and landmark buildings such as the Idaho State Capital, City Hall, and the Cathedral of St. John's harmoniously exist alongside modern high-rises just blocks from the newly named seventh&franklin. Offering the rare privilege of preserving a piece of Boise history through materials, design and craftsmanship while elevating the desires of modern lifestyles. Seventh&franklin is a building that bridges past and present and balances the need for retreat with the passion to be at the center of the many shopping, dining, and entertaining destinations found throughout this vibrant neighborhood.
