Idaho AGC Going Up

The boom in retail options in the north portion of Meridian/Eagle continues. A small new shopping center is set to be constructed, and already has most of the space leased out before a single shovel is turned.

Alturas Capital of Eagle says it will build a 10,257 square foot retail building on a pad parcel in front of Fred Meyer in the Eagle Island Marketplace development.

  • The sixth location for local burger and fry upstart Boise Fry Co. will anchor the center. It will give BFC a second location in Meridian.
  • Franchised tanning salon Palm Beach Tan will add a seventh local location.
  • Weight loss clinic Profile by Sanford plans its first Idaho outlet.

“We are excited to be working with tenant partners who want to bring their businesses to this thriving and growing part of the Boise valley.” Alturas Capital president Travis Barney said in a prepared release.

The company says it hopes to break ground this spring, wrap up this summer and welcome tenants by the fall.

The project sits across the street from a large proposed commercial center, anchored by Winco Foods.

Correction: The parcel is in Eagle. Incorrect information in a news release and from the Ada County Assesor prompted the error.
