UPDATE: Plans for North End apartment project revealed

UPDATE, JUNE 27: The Design Review permits are in - with some additional detail on an ambitious apartment and retail complex near the Boise Co-Op.

The project would have 31 apartments ranging from one to three bedrooms as part of a four-story building on the site at 902 S. 8th St.  An underground parking garage would be supplemented with a small parking lot across the street and a few garages on the first level. 

One retail space is included - with about 3,000 square feet.

Thirty-seven parking spots are included in the garages, with 23 spots planned across Cunningham Place.

"The area is an ideal location for a medium density residential development that is close to services and within walking distance of downtown, jobs, and recreation," applicant John Price said in a letter to the City of Boise.

PREVIOUS, MAY, 31, 2017: A banner went up on the front of the old Baird's Dry Cleaners near the Boise Co-Op this morning, and it generated lots of interest.

Several folks sent us tips (thank you!), and the North End group on Facebook is abuzz about the project.  The banner on the building notes a few features:

  • Four story mixed use building
  • Three floors of condominiums
  • Underground parking garage
  • First floor shop space

The project is being put together by David Southers and his eponymous Southers Properties - the company behind the 2000s-era Hyde Park Place condo project.

No permits have yet been filed with the City of Boise, and Southers tells BoiseDev the project is still in the early stages.

 "We're working on the design and site plan," he said by email. "(It) looks like the site will support about 30 residential units and 4,000 s.f. of shop space."

Southers said that just today he's received five inquiries about the project.  The banner notes a 2018 opening date.

Stay tuned.
