You may build your own ContentAreaRenderer to control the surrounding divs, check this: http://blog.tech-fellow.net/2015/06/11/content-area-under-the-hood-part-3/
Or use this AddOn if you use Bootstrap
This is perfect sample on how to use block's ID to add it to the wrapping elements: http://blog.tech-fellow.net/2015/09/07/create-episerver-site-menu-out-of-block-driven-content/
It was needed for generating menus out of page content.
