No Crunch: Apartment complex set for deteriorating gym building

The decaying former ParkCenter Health and Racquet building could soon disappear.

In its place, a four- or five-story apartment complex could spring up, according to a neighbor letter obtained by BoiseDev.

“We are working on the design of an apartment complex at 1250 S. Division Ave., Boise, ID,” Owen F. Slagle III of Form Architectural Group wrote. “The owner is proposing to construct a four or five story building with a parking garage and retail space on the first floor, and three or four stories of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments above.”

Crunch Fitness put up signage and applied for permits in early 2018 indicating it would add another location in the building. After more than a year without any movement, the local franchisee told BoiseDev it wouldn’t move forward with the project.

“We turned over our option to buy and are not doing a club any longer,” Curtis Harman, CEO of Harman Fitness told BoiseDev. “Boise has been such a tough market that we are not looking to (add) any more clubs there.”

The building is owned by Bay Shore Oil Company, which is associated with DD Dunlap of California – which also owns Boise Spectrum.

The city of Boise requires a neighborhood meeting – that is set for this Thursday, July 25 at 7 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Express at 475 W. ParkCenter Blvd. Form says it will share a site plan, floor plan and architectural drawings at the meeting.
