Meridian Cycles cancels expansion plans, new owners buy Frontier Club By Holly Beech email@example.com HollyBeechMP Aug 9, 2017 (…) The New Frontier Club opened in Meridian in 1973 at 116 E. Broadway Ave. Holly Beech/MP Plans for a bicycle shop and nano brewery in the New Frontier Club building have fallen through.Meridian Cycles owners Paul and Krista McKenna had envisioned buying and renovating the downtown Meridian building and moving their bike shop there, along with leasing out space to a local brewer. The couple secured an urban renewal facade improvement grant.But with the competitive construction market, the timing just wasn’t right, Krista McKenna said. × Advertisement “All the building costs have skyrocketed here, so it just didn’t make sense for us,” she said. “It just wasn’t meant to be.”For now, Meridian Cycles will stay put at 830 N. Main St., just down the road from the New Frontier building at 116 E. Broadway Ave.The club sold to new owners this year, father Charlie Steinbroner and son Ryan Steinbroner, who also own the Fireside Inn in Boise. They changed the name to The Frontier and are renovating the building inside and out, said Joe Dueno, general manager for both bars.The next project at The Frontier, he said, will be to renovate the back patio and install a large roll-up garage door. Management is also looking into uncovering the windows at the front of the club.“We’re going to have a very usable and functional outdoor area and inside area, and very friendly and open,” Dueno said.The Frontier is open daily from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. More from this section 3 Meridian companies named to Inc. 5000 list Posted: Aug. 18, 2017 Why the 'incredibly strong' demand in Ada County's housing market?
