In a location next to a grocery store-turned-TV station and behind a motel, Hale Development saw opportunity with the Idaho St. Condos.

New local blog The Constructivist talked with the architect behind the project – Stan Cole of Cole Architects.

This project, like all projects, has its challenges. Because of the location and type of residential product, there were no comparative projects. Finding an appraiser and a lender that understood this type of project was tough. But, we overcame and are well on the way.

Cole also said the project will be a little more full-featured in phase two, as the first phase was dialed back a bit to meet market demands.
