WinCo at Chinden & Linder back on the drawing board with possible library & more

The project once included a Costco – but the warehouse chain decided to build down the road instead.

But now Linder Village at Chinden Blvd. and Linder Rd. is back into the City of Meridian with a plan that would develop a massive 81 acres of land on a key corner in North Meridian.  The new plan comes after Meridian City Council sent the previous concept back to Planning and Zoning earlier this year.

Here’s what’s in the current plan:

  • Mixed-use with “retail office, civic and residential uses”
  • Fast casual-style restaurant sites
  • WinCo Foods grocery store
  • Potential fuel center
  • Potential “entertainment/soft goods” sites
  • Multi-story office/residential/retail buildings
  • Future single-family home sites
  • Future office/retail space
  • Potential library site
  • Surface parking for more than 1,000 vehicles

Developers Lynx and DMG Real Estate also changed the site layout and reconfigured the WinCo Foods store on the property.

“The latest revisions to the Linder Village proposal include a special building design for WinCo Foods that positions the receiving area on the west side of the building to face north,” the developers noted on the Linder Village website. “This reoriented building design ensures zero visibility to the neighborhood to the south and resolves noise concerns. Additionally, the dock facilities are screened by a full building height masonry wall.”

The project is set for a hearing in front of Meridian’s Planning & Zoning Commission on November 15th. The commission will hear requests for annexation, zoning, a preliminary plat and approval of a variance to change access points along Chinden Blvd.

The news was first reported by the Meridian Press.
