Salt Lake City-based Boyer Company proposes to build an industrial building on Eisenman Rd. near the Boise Airport. The warehouse is the first on a 159-acre site owned by the City of Boise.
According to permit filings, the company plans to build a 168,000 square foot building at 9605 W. Eisenman at the corner of Freight St. The site of the Boise Gateway Industrial Park is near the WinCo Foods Distribution Center.
A site plan on the Boyer Company’s website shows as many as 22 buildings at full build-out, with 1.6 million square feet of space. However, the site plan submitted with the City of Boise does not perfectly match the “conceptual layout” on Boyer’s website.
Here’s how Boyer describes the project:
“Boise Gateway Industrial Park is a new industrial development project by The Boyer Company. The approximately 159-acre site will offer tenants a prime location in one of the fastest growing cities in the nation. Boise Valley Industrial Park is perfectly situated between two freeway exits, eight minutes to the Boise Airport, and fourteen minutes to Downtown Boise. The Park is shovel-ready with all utilities to site creating build-to-suit opportunities immediately available, with the first spec building to be completed in the summer of 2019.”
The first building would be 42 feet tall and have parking for 142 cars and nine bicycles.
The City of Boise and Boyer signed both a development agreement and a lease for the property.
In the term sheet for the lease, signed in 2017, the city promised it would “take necessary steps and collaborate with the Capital City Development Corporation to establish an urban renewal district…” The city signed the lease agreement with Boyer before it accepted the findings of a consultant hired by CCDC to scope the eligibility of the area for an urban renewal district. The eligibility findings study was completed in August 2018.
The building will need approval from Boise’s Design Review Commission. A hearing date is not yet scheduled.
