As BoiseDev first reported last August, and updated earlier this year, a new 8-story project will soon go up 3rd & Myrtle.

Boise River Caddis plans to build a 174-unit apartment complex in an L-shape near the Ada County Courthouse. It will include a large 413-space parking garage – which will include a partnership with the county to utilize a portion of the garage. The project also includes space for 192 bicycles.

River Caddis and Opus Design Build applied for a $20 million building permit for the project with the City of Boise last week. The 84-foot tall building will include a total of 283,900 square feet on the 1.49 acre parcel.

As we previously reported, the first floor would feature space for a cafe with outdoor seating along 3rd St., and commercial along Broad St. facing CSHQA. It would also have offices for the residential component of the building. The second, third and fourth floors would primarily serve car parking. The fifth floor is set for apartments as well as a fitness center and landscaped rooftop courtyard. The sixth, seventh and eight floors would contain additional residential units.

The project joins a flurry of proposed projects in the Downtown Boise area that would add more than 1,000 additional housing units.
