Large project set for high-profile site off Broadway & I-84

If you’ve exited Interstate 84 at Broadway and headed north – you’ve probably noticed a large piece of land near the New York Canal. Just to the east of the roadway sits a large 6-acre site of empty land.

Soon, work crews will start building a large, $12-million manufacturing and warehouse building.

AceCo Precision Manufacturing will build the 92,000 square foot building on the site. AceCo is a Boise-based company that makes components for several industries – including semiconductor and solar. The employee-owned company owns facilities in Boise as well as in Singapore.

The project passed Boise’s design review process last year, and will include 157 vehicle parking spots and 15 bike parking spots. Asphalt for parking will cover more than half of the site, with about 9% featuring landscaping. The rest is dedicated to the two-story building. In addition to a large warehouse and manufacturing floor, the project will include office space, a breakroom and conference room.

“The design intent and philosophy are to provide as much manufacturing and warehouse space with necessary office space for the function of the business,” Marcellus Clark with BRS Architects wrote in an application letter.

The City of Boise issued a building permit in June – the second most-valuable of the month for the city.
