Developer plans 126-unit apartment complex in Barber Valley

SLN Planning and JKP Construction Management hope to win approval for a 126-unit apartment complex on Warm Springs Avenue in Barber Valley.

The project would be located on the site of a current single family residence and sits on more than 8 acres of land.  The Barber Hill Vistas project is described as a "high quality, luxury multi-family development.

Eighteen two-story buildings are proposed for the site, with one and two-bedroom configurations. The project would have one duplex, seven four-plexes and ten traditional apartment buildings. The site is sloped, so buildings nearest residences will be shorter, with taller buildings further downhill.  Renderings and a site plan were not immediately available.

Developers say the plan will include a community clubhouse, picnic/BBQ area, community garden, and pathways and wildlife protection areas.  About 40% of the site would be open space or common areas.

Neighbors in the adjacent Dallas Harris Estates neighborhood have already filed about half-a-dozen letters in opposition to the project.

The property is not a part of the tightly-controlled Barber Valley Specific Plan which micro-manages the types of development that can occur.

The project will go through Boise's Planning & Zoning process. A hearing date is not yet set.
