Townhomes to join revamped Reggie’s Veggies in W. Boise

Reggie’s Veggies is about to get company – and a new home. The long-standing outdoor produce market at Ustick Rd. and Milwaukee St. in Boise operates out of tents on a large lot.

But a project just approved by the City of Boise will give it a state-of-the-art new home, plus add a series of new townhomes to the site.

Grand View Partnership, LLC owns the roughly one-acre site in West Boise. A Team Architecture applied to build 36 new townhomes in nine buildings, plus the new Reggie’s Veggies site on the corner.

The townhomes will each be three stories tall with two-car garages. They will be “alley load,” with garages in the back and front entry along the street. The site will also include a small pocket park on the south end.

“(Our) intent is to also maintain the historical nature of the site, and improve its look and function extensively,” Steve Arnold with A Team Architecture wrote in an application letter. “The site is centrally located in an area of the City that has been developed with significant amount of commercial uses with a limit on housing varieties.”

Reggie’s will move out of the white tents and into a new building roughly shaped as a triangle. The building wi open-air when it is warm but can be sealed up in the winter to extend the selling season for the market.

“The existing vegetable stand will be removed and replaced with an indoor and outdoor commercial building,” Steve Arnold with A Team Architecture wrote in an application letter. “This building is being designed so that the existing use can utilize the facility as an outdoor vegetable market, both in the winter and summer months.”

The project, dubbed Broadview Place, won approval for a planned unit development and design review from the City of Boise.
