Fowler developer plans similar residential/commercial project nearby

Another mixed-use residential and commercial project is in preliminary stages for Downtown Boise.

Portland-based developer LocalConstruct plans to build The Cartee Project, which could include retail, restaurant, office, parking and mutli-family residential.

The first step is an agreement to rezone the parcels of land at the corner of 4th St and Broad St. in Boise from residential to commercial. The empty lots currently host surface parking, but once featured a number of houses in Boise’s Central Addition before they were demolished in stages over the last 15 years.

Developers held a neighborhood meeting and told the four people who attended the goal was to “create a contemporary urban experience downtown,” and said the change in zoning from residential to commercial was needed “for us to be able to bring another genuinely walkable, urban, mixed-use housing project to the Downtown Core.”

The application describes the residential as being apartments, and says the project could be seven or eight stories in total. This new effort is said to be similar to the nearby Fowler which Local Construct completed earlier this year.

A massing diagram for the project shows an eight-story building with three floors of parking and commercial/retail, with five stories of residential above it, though the final building form was not formally submitted to the City of Boise and would come later as part of a design review process.
