Village at Meridian
A new apartment complex is planned for the Village at Meridian. Via Brighton Corp.

The Village at Meridian is a hub for shoppers and office workers – and soon folks will be able to live right on site.

Brighton Corp. is building a new 166-unit apartment complex directly behind the Boise Co-Op’s Meridian location. The five-story building will have one floor of parking and four floors of apartments according to permits filed with the City of Meridian. More than half of the units will be one bedroom, with the rest featuring two or three bedrooms. Some of the units will feature dens or balconies.

Hugh Crawford, General Manager of the Village at Meridian for Centercal Properties said they sold the 3-acre site to Brighton Corp. for the development.

The community is intended for an active audience over the age of 55. Facilities include a fitness center, clubhouse and media room. The product is not meant as an assisted care facility according to Crawford, but more akin to Brighton’s Cadence development elsewhere in Meridian, which is positioned as an “active adult community.”

The rest of the area behind the Village’s “big box” strip is now paved and available for parking.

“It’s a parking lot today, but we could see developing it down the road,” Crawford said. “It’s taking some of the pressure off of some of our parking.”
