Several BoiseDev readers noticed construction activity happening behind the Fred Meyer gas station on Federal Way in Boise. The site, on TK Ave., is highly visible from the freeway-style ramp connecting Federal Way to Broadway Ave.
Permits filed with the City of Boise indicate crews are putting up a 10,000 square foot industrial warehouse on the site, with room for possible future expansion of another 10,000 square feet.
The site will also include parking for 28 parking spaces, and three spaces for bicycles.
The site, owned by Boise business owner and Norco founder Jim Kissler, has long sat vacant. It used to sit behind the TK Bar, which moved and was replaced by the Fred Meyer gas station.
Permits indicate it will house White Bird Auto Distributors, but that apparent business has not filed to do business with the State of Idaho.
It’s one of several properties in the area Kissler owns that have been developed in recent years, including the site of the former Cobby’s restaurant, and a building that now houses a small medical clinic on Broadway.
Industrial projects in and around Boise continue to boom, with demand at high levels and vacancy rates very low.
