Dance studio, retail under construction in Barber Valley

Boise’s Barber Valley area is seeing a housing boom – but still has a relatively low amount of commercial retail space (save for Lucky 13, a gas station, the new Coffee Mill and a planned Albertsons complex). 

Many residents have been curious about a pair of buildings going up on Barber Valley Drive near Maryanne Williams Park.

One of the two structures will be home to Boise Dance Alliance and hopes to be open by August 1st. The dance school and studio is currently located on Apple St. near ParkCenter Blvd.

The other building is planned for multiple tenants, but no permits for just what might go into those spaces have yet been filed.   Developers describe potential uses for the 6,203 square foot building as “restaurant/office/retail.” Construction has not yet started on the second structure.
