BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) -- Living in Boise, and following the epic saga of the infamous pit at 8th and Main downtown, Jennifer Zvoboda never imagined one day she'd be working in the glistening new building that finally filled the historic hole.

"I think it's actually really cool, that they made such a nice building and I have the chance to work here," she said.

Zvoboda is part of an advance team with the law firm Parsons Behle and Latimer that is setting up shop on the 13th floor of the new Zions Bank Building.

They're the first tenants to move in.

"We will be open for business on Monday," said Parsons Behle and Latimer spokesman Dean Larson. "A lot of that day will be spent unpacking boxes, but the offices will officially be open Monday 8:30 a.m."

But wait!

The first tenants.

On the 13th floor.

The mysterious number 13.

The ancient curse of the corner at 8th and Main.

But Larsen says he's not superstitious.

"It is the first question everybody asks," Larson said. "The 13th floor. We've dubbed it the lucky 13. The lucky 13th floor."

And the view from the lucky 13th floor is outstanding.

Many people never ever thought a building would go up at this prominent downtown spot that's been essentially vacant since 1987.

But never ever is here.
