BoiseDev Project Tracker

Presented by TOK

Boise City Council member and Capital City Development Corporation board member Scot Ludwig plans to build a pair of towers on land he controls at 5th St. and Broad St. in Boise.

On the north corner, Ludwig would build a nine-story office and parking structure on the southeast corner of the intersection, and an 11-story condo building on the north corner.

The two projects would be linked by a skybridge which will contain parking and a terrace over Broad St. – about 44 feet above the ground.

Here’s what is planned, according to documents filed with the City of Boise:

  • South property – nine stories
    • Ground floor retail and parking
    • Five levels of parking – including two that span over Broad St.
    • Three stories of office space.
  • North property – 11 stories
    • Four Two-story “live work” units facing 5th Street
    • Third floor office space
    • Two levels of parking, connected to the sky bridge
    • Five stories of condominiums – four per floor
  • 273 parking spaces
  • 24 total condos

The project will need to be approved for both a conditional use permit and get design review approval, as well as a variance. The allowed height for buildings in the area is currently six stories, but Ludwig and his team are proposing to go as high as 11-stories.

Correction: An earlier version of this story stated LocalConstruct was a developer on this project. Ludwig is the only developer listed.
