A large apartment complex could go up in an aging area of Downtown Boise marked for redevelopment.
Developer Morgan Stonehill of Las Vegas presented the City of Boise with information for a pre-application meeting on a site at 703 W. Americana Blvd. earlier this month. The site, at the corner of Americana and Shoreline, is currently home to a medical office building.
The preliminary plan the development firm showed the city would replace the current single-story building with a seven-story apartment complex building with integrated parking. The plan calls for a total of 350 apartments, with 210 one-bedroom and 140 two-bedroom units.
The ground floor along Shoreline and Americana would feature a pair of retail spaces at the corner, as well as a leasing office and mail area, and a bike room. A large two-story parking garage would start on the ground floor and continue up on to the second level, with a total of 379 spaces.
