Developer plans lots of houses on small chunk of land

In an area known for lots of houses close together, a new development will up the density ante.

Boise Hunter Homes plans to construct 61 two- and three-story homes on a 6-acre piece of land in Barber Valley at the corner of Barnside Way and Wolf Tree Street.

Wolf Tree Square

The development will have a density of more than ten homes per acre – with garages located off of alleys and an internal driveway system.

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.
