Dirt lot with taco truck could be turned into Boise Bench apartments

A taco truck and emission testing shed could be looking for a new home if an apartment project on the Boise Bench is approved.

Boise real estate agent Wendy Klahr submitted the application on behalf of Jake Enterprises, which owns the property at 3940 W. Overland Rd. as well as ABC Laundry, which is next door to the project. The site is the former home of Q’s Trophy Cabin, which was torn down in 2010 after sitting vacant.

If approved by Boise’s planning & zoning commission, a new 17-unit apartment complex would be built on the site, along the corner of Overland and Pershing Drive, with parking for 18 cars and 17 bicycles behind the building. Each of the units would be 1-bedroom apartments according to the application.

“The philosophy of the project is to enhance and accent the surrounding neighborhood and historical context represented by use of material and form of the building,” architect Jeff Hatch wrote in an applicant letter submitted to the City of Boise.

The project is scheduled to go in front of planning and zoning at its September 17th meeting.
