Renderings show new affordable apartment project near Basque Block

New renderings show a building at the corner of 6th and Grove. As BoiseDev reported last week, the project would bring 60 affordable housing units in a seven-story building. Application documents also show ground floor retail and a single story of office.

The unnamed apartment complex will go through Boise’s design review process – and the affordable piece appears to be dependent on federal tax credits.

The project would sprout up at the same time as another project next door from the same development team. The other building also includes housing units – but made available at market rates.

Renderings show the 5th and Idaho side of the development clad with a brown-gray brick that contrasts from the more tan color of the building next door. The first two floors of the building will wrap around a steel frame and will have two-story support columns. The renderings show retail opening on to the corner of 6th St. and Grove St., opposite the Basque Block.

The projects are being developed by Clay Carley, deChase Miksis and other partners not yet identified in application documents.

The two buildings would stitch together with a small courtyard space along Grove St.

A hearing date for design review on the 6th and Grove portion of the project is not yet set. The separate but related building on the 5th and Grove side passed muster with the City of Boise in June.
