Deadlines in building and construction are often hard to meet, but progress is about to be made on a project originally intended for this year.

Southers Properties has been working to develop the old Baird’s Dry Cleaning site on 8th St. near the Boise Co-Op.  A banner on the building promises the four-story project promises it is “coming 2018.”

We checked in with Dave Southers, who says “yes, the building is still happening. It’s taken forever to get it started.”

He hopes demolition of the old Baird’s building will happen within a month, and they’ve filed a permit to make it happen.

The project is slated to be known as The Metropolitan, and would feature ground-floor retail, integrated parking and three stories of condos.
