Work starts on infill townhomes on Boise Bench

Idaho AGC Going Up

Building permits with the City of Boise show work will begin on a series of infill townhomes along Kootenai St.. The aptly named Kootenai Townhomes sit between Vista Ave. and Federal Way.

The project will include 17 homes, with about half facing Kootenai and the other half oriented toward the Union Pacific Railroad spur. This is one fewer unit than initially proposed.

Each home will stand three stories tall. The ground floor features a garage and office or bedroom. The second-floor plan shows living space, kitchen and balcony. The third-floor plan includes bedrooms and bathroom. Renderings also show a rooftop deck for the units. All together, crews will construct six buildings with three homes each.

The Kootenai Townhomes will feature metal panels, fiber cement siding, marine-grade stained and sealed plywood, powder-coated steel plates, and vinyl windows.

An internal nine-space parking lot is also planned.

The project went before Boise’s Planing and Zoning Commission last September and won approval.
