Stalled project at Jerry’s 27th St. site comes back to life

By now, Jerry’s 27th Street Market was supposed to be just a memory – and a new retail and residential project should have been far along on the construction process.

But for months, the former grocery store along 27th Street has remained… empty, but still standing.

Now developers are hoping to kick-start the Whitewater Station project – but first will go back in front of the City of Boise for another round of requested changes.

A neighborhood meeting is set to allow folks who live near the site at 27th Street and Stewart Ave. the chance to give input into the latest changes.

A letter to neighbors, provided to the BoiseDev Facebook group, shows an updated site plan with four separate three-story buildings connected by private driveways that would connect to an alley in the rear of the project.

“We are proposing to construct a mixed-use (commercial and residential) building and associated parking. There are 28 proposed residential units and approximately 2,300 square feet of commercial space located along 27th Street,” the applicants wrote in the letter to neighbors.

Each of the four buildings will have integrated parking – with a total of 34 spaces. 

That’s an adjustment from the last plan which would have had just 23 residential units, plus a small surface parking lot. The two buildings in the former configuration would have been as tall as four stories.

The neighborhood meeting is set for Thursday night at 6pm in the parking lot of the old Jerry’s 27th Street Market.
