The houses will range in size from 1,624 square feet up to as much as a whopping 6,419 square feet on three stories.

Here’s how the developer describes the project:

“The Wolf Tree Square project will contain two distinct housing types that will complement the existing and future areas of development. The two housing types that have been designed for this parcel are a three-store elevated home (E-Home) and a motorcourt home.”

The project was approved by the Boise City Council in February and is set to proceed.

The Harris Family and LeNir Ltd. have planned commercial across the street from the development abutting ParkCenter Blvd.
