A three-story building constructed in 1937 could make way for a new, larger five-story condo project.
If the City of Boise approves the rezone, the applicants plan to build a new five-story building. It would include 22 condo units and office space.
The project would include parking for 21 cars on the ground floor, plus a bike room, fitness center, 1,736 square foot office space
The next three floors would feature a variety of one- and two-bedroom condos. They range from 1,055 square feet to 1,419 square feet.
The top floor shows one large 4,400 square foot condo, with a 2,200 square foot rooftop deck.
The application says Herbold and Swindell would both live and work in the building.
“The property is underutilized,” the applicants wrote in justifying the rezone. “The Downtown Master Plan identified a demand for urban housing appears to be increasing, which will likely spur continued redevelopment in Downtown. Creating a vibrant urban center where people are able to live, work and play and where walking, bicycling and transit are practical alternatives to the automobile are key goals for downtown.”
City of Boise staffers have not yet set a hearing date.
