An empty lot just a stone’s throw from Bown Crossing could soon add an additional 14 houses to southeast Boise.

Jim Conger’s DevCo is working on the Latigo Place subdivision, which workers would build on a skinny 1.41-acre piece of property at 2101 E. Boise Ave.

The parcel, a former home site, and a small pasture is owned by the family of Ralph and Margaret Johnson. Demolition crews removed a home and barn on the site, making way for the new development.

“This project’s proximity to Boise Avenue and the Bown Crossing Activity Center will encourage walkability to and from the storefronts and restaurants in the commercial areas,” the applicant wrote in a letter to the City of Boise. “Nearby schools and a branch of the Boise Public Library will add to the enjoyment and quality of life of the residence (sic). “

DevCo teamed up with Black Rock Homes (formerly Tahoe Homes) to construct a series of two-story houses. The lots will average 4,360 square feet and host houses about 2,200 square feet in size.

The project needs approval for a planned unit development from the City of Boise. It will go before the Boise Planning & Zoning Commission on June 10th at 6pm at Boise City Hall.
